yes, definately a worthless thread for multiple reasons.

but i'll agree that they are great buys, i think the lincoln LS are good buys as well, they're dirt cheap. the R is a lot of car for the money and is "under the radar" of most car shoppers.. for 16k with the Jag certified warranty and all the toys plus 400hp, its a great buy, id still prefer a 2000 E55 with the same miles for similiar money, but you wont get one with factory warranty(personally id be okay with this sacrifice). the 4L supercharged motor is the same exact motor as in the XKR, XJR as well as some of the newer supercharged Range's and is a great motor. the S type is not god's gift to looks and performance in an automobile, but its certainly not a car to criticize for the money.

that said, max benz, you can now stop blabbing about how wonderful your car is, you dont need to justify the validity of your car purchase by posting numerous semi obnoxious posts, it just provokes arguments and haters... but i think the haters are hating on your braggin approach moreso than the car itself, as i dont think many people are familiar with Jaguars.. overall the S and X type were a dissaster for Jaguar as they did not meet any sales objectives; they make a much better used car than a new car.

Once, i thought i was wrong; but i had only been mistaken...

Good point.MB forum or not,I will be interested to hear how the Jag holds up.

Not well (for both brands). I know very well somebody with a 2002 Jag of this type and brakes and tranny are main expensive trouble areas.

Also my wife leased a 2001 C240 and that was a bigger piece of crap.

Great location!! I love how you chose the area to shoot it in. The surrounding object(s) totally reflect well on what that car really is. It looks as if it feels at home.

It is in an empty lot with rusted trash containers & what looks to be abandoned trailers.

A spray painted Pinto would stick out there.


Why has this not been moved to Off-topic?

I still do not see how you paid so little. Did your parents foot the rest of the cash?
