    Yeah I know, no biggie. Funny thing is both these V8 Jags I have don't leak anything, but the older ones I had , with the Ford V6 engines leaked like hell...

      Good shit. I always liked the shape of these things. I had no idea this Portfolio version existed.

      Pics of brakes?

        Hey I used to be a massive Jag fan up until my nopics arrived in a Mk10/420G on our wedding day.

        Nowadays the leaping cats just trigger nightmares and panic attacks.

          Here's the special bling of the Portfolio's













          Haven't pulled a wheel off yet so here's a pic I stole from the internet of the front brakes.



          Edit

          Here's one of the new front rotors to go on it

            I'm late to the party but congratulations on a very nice purchase! There is one of these near me that must have a crazy aftermarket exhaust as its quite loud. Sounds sweet.

              Thanks mate

              The 5.0L's are really loud, especially the XKR-S which has a straight through centre pipe from the factory, I'm going to get a copy of that design made up for this one, if that's still not making the right noises then I'll be looking at 400 cell cats. Since I had that drama with choked cats on the XJR, I'm a bit suss about the cats on this thing already...

                The brakes were the reason I wanted a Portfolio, some of the regular XKR's were also optioned with the Alcons but kind of few & far between in this country.

                The production cars got the "cheaper" 1-piece rotors, but the first application with the Alcon's on the Palmersport XKR's had a 2-piece floating rotor.

                You can get 2-piece rotors, but they cost a bomb...

                          Started cleaning the leather today, fuck now I remember why I wanted one with a black interior...

                          Before



                          And after



                          I gotta pull the seats out to change the carpets, so that'll be when I really get stuck into it.

                          (Got a pair of mint condition charcoal carpets to replace the dirty ivory ones).

                              I don't always buy a new car, but when I do I always pull it apart within the first week of ownership...









                              And this is why I'm changing the carpets
