Huh?? 


3.0 V6 (executive).  Accidently put the R next to it.

Cool.

I don't know the Jaguar engine choices and I've never gotten comfortable with the liter to cubic inch conversion.

There is 5 different engine types for the Jaguar S-Type.  Each Jaguar is also very unique as they can be customized.  Mine actually still has its car phone in it...I'll have to show everyone when I get the car back.  Mine was a typical executive car with all the bells and whistle that you would expect out of a car that used to cost 50k brand new.   I'm keeping mine all the same...no stupid 20 inch rims or spinners or whatever the fuck people put on them.  Its a great car on its own without all of that.

3.0 L but not a turbo, right?

 Very cool. Get a good leather cleaner and conditioner for the seats. Try to clean and flush the cooling and fueling systems. You'll be good to go.

Nope but it still burns up the highway.  I'm decent at cleaning and detailing but when it comes to working on cars, I always have my vehicles taken to Fisher's Garage in Greenville....been counting on them for almost 20 years.  They aren't the least expensive but they are the most competent and most honest.  But one thing is for sure.  When I was parked at a stop light, the car got a lot of looks from people next to me.  Its a good feeling to have.

Its mainly going to be used for marketing and occasional weekend driving.  Prob won't get but about 1000 miles a year on it.  I love my Taurus as a daily driver and my Jeep is great for hauling estate buys and other goods

Congrats man, when I bought my Land Rover (Jaguar/ land rover - same factory) I got the impression that the Jags were the more mechanically reliable of the two - which is a good thing, as Landy's are notorious for turning a novice into an at home mechanic because of various issues. Beautiful car you've got there.

Congratulations Vince!   

Was it the Jaguar that had a distinct smell because of the leather tanning process?

Same engine used in the Lincoln LS. I think they were pretty reliable.

This is correct. I had an 05 LS and it was a great car, the main issue were the coil packs going bad.

Let me guess, you're a Jaguar expert too?

You can't expect the John D. Rockefeller of the Carolinas to drive a F-150 now can you?

Piss off back to the google images photos of that leg wound. Someone might believe that is you, but I sure as hell don't.

Well guys...as I mentioned I was having the car inspected and didn't anticipate any real problems as the CarFax came back clean and it drove like a charm..but I got back word from Fishers Garage that the car was at one point submerged underwater to my astonishment Tongue.  Electrical cords were frayed, rust...unrepairable and not road worthy.


So I went and drove that car right back to the dealer.  It sucks that I only owned that car for 48 hours but that's why I always tell people to have a vehicle inspected.  It definitely could have been worse as I could have gotten killed driving down the highway

Vince, your dream of owning a jaguar was realized for 48 hours. Not much else could be asked or accomplished!

It's cool, going to another dealer who had another one available.  Life goes on

Based off the Ford Mondeo platform which was Ford's Europeon Taurus

I dont think the V6 model was anywhere near $50,000

Only a good investment if you can turn around and sell it for profit
