 JAGUAR 1999 XJ8 X308 4.0 ltr Sport Sedan
**Needs minor Mechanical & Paint Repairs**

This vehicle was purchased with the intention to dismantle but is in far too good condition to wreck out & deserves to be kept on the road. It has been kept registered up until we purchased the vehicle just before Xmas last year. Unfortunately has been parked outside in the sun & the top coat of the clear coat paint has gone off & it will need repainting. The air conditioning still works & blows cold. We don't have the radio codes but this can be purchased on the nett. It still drives very well & feels firm on the road. 

The Jaguar X308 was the follow on model of the XJ40 but without any of the faults that unfortunately gave the XJ40 a bad reputation. When Ford bought Jaguar back in 1990, they brought a lot of quality control systems that was desperately needed by our favourite marque. This meant that the follow on models were some of the best models produced by Jaguar in many years, whilst still keeping the Jaguar feel & tradition of the vehicle. The XJ40 was replaced by the X300 fitted with a straight 6 cylinder engine & was a great success story from the day it was released. The X308 was the next model to follow on from the X300 which was also a great success because of the newer V8 engine which was fitted along with a 5 speed ZF auto gearbox.
The inside of the car has a combination of Oatmeal leather and walnut wood grain. The timber is in very good order & still looks great. The interior is in good condition but would benefit from some leather conditioner & colour touch-ups (Leatherique is a great product for this). The
The body is in good order & has no sign of any rust.  It does not have any major damage at all & only minor work requiredThe X308's in general never had the rust issues of the earlier models because of the better rust treatment at the factory. It requires paint on the top surfaces as the clear has worn off, but once repaired & painted this has the basis of a very good vehicle.
We have had our Independent Jaguar specialist mechanic fully check the vehicle & has given it a clean bill of health.
