WHEN I BOUGHT THIS JAGUAR IT WAS LISTED AS AUCTION ANNOUNCED STRUCTURAL DAMAGE. THE ONLY DAMAGE WAS THAT THE DRIVER HEADLIGHT WAS BROKEN AND IT HAD A VERY SMALL DING IN THE HOOD ABOVE THE LIGHT. I REPLACED THE LIGHT AND HOOD. THE TITLE IS CLEAN. I am a small dealer in South Carolina. I only drive 4.2 XJ8 Jaguars and only this body style XJ8, as the newer ones have lost their uniqueness. I have driven Mercedes and BMWs, but once I drove a this body style Jaguar I was hooked. The German cars are highly over engineered and laden with issues. They also feel like they are dragging around about 1000 lbs of extra weight. My Jaguars have always felt powerful, light and nimble. But most of all, their reliability won me over. No more getting into a drama queen German car wondering what would go wrong next. My 2007 XKR is about to hit 100k with no issues at all, none, in the 3 years I have owned it. And, this and every XJ8 of this body style I have had with the 4.2 engine have been nothing but a joy to drive. I have driven this one for a while and have now bought another 2008 model. Time to let someone else enjoy this low mileage beauty. This is the long wheelbase model 2008 XJ. It runs and drives every bit as good as it looks. It does get looks everywhere it goes. Even at this age these cars always stand out for their inique beauty. This XJ is in very good condition in and out. Obviously, being a 2008 model it will show wear. The exterior is in very good condition and shows only minor wear from use. The paint is still in very good condition and shines very well, with only minor normal wear. There is a crack in the grill and minor damage to the bumper cover beside the right headlight which were there when I bought the car. Please see the pictures as these are in them. The interior is also in very good condition and shows only minor wear from use. The leather seats show only moderate to minor wear and are very clean, as I like to keep them. There is minor wear on the driver seat, and a nick in the passenger front seat that is pictured. The carpets and mats are excellent and exceptionally clean. No stains. I do not eat or drink in my cars. I beleive that at some point before I bought this car that someone did smoke in it. There is no damage at all that I can see but a faint smell when I bought it. I believe it is gone now due to a complete cleaning and leather conditioning. The 4.2 DOHC V8 starts and runs flawlessly with no issues at all and no warning lights. It starts easy, and power is ample and ultra smooth. I just had the heater valve/thermostat changed last week. Gas economy is excellent though I never give a thought to gas mileage when buying a luxury car. The most I ever got out of my S600 AMG was 15mpg. I get more than that in the city with this car without the drama. The transmission shifts ultra smoothly through all gears without any problems at all. Most of the time a drop in the RPMs is the only indication that a shift has occurred. The tires are all very good. I replaced all air struts with new comfort air struts recently for a smoother ride. I also replaced the fixed HID headlights with factory adaptive HID ones. This XJ8 runs and drives excellent and should be a reliable and classy drive, as long as you don't mind being stared at by other drivers. These really are beautiful cars in a world of cookie cutter cars. Jaguar is in the ultra luxury car group so all have many amenities, too many for me to mention. I will say that this one has the optional heated and cooled seats, front and rear parking sensors, and the excellent Alpine sound system, along with factory navigation. All these work great and as designed except the parking sensors. Apparently, one of the sensors is unplugged or bad. I have never bothered to find out which as I always turn to look anyway. The cooled seats are especially nice here in the south, but if you need heat no problem there either. I never use navigation in either of my cars but it works great. Sometimes I turn it on to occasionally watch the little arrow move around as I drive or to hear that lovely british voice tell me where I am. All in all, nothing matches these cars for luxury class driving. If you haven't driven one, try it. IF YOU HAVE LESS THAN 10 FEEDBACKS PLEASE CONTACT US BEFORE BIDDING OR RISK BEING CANCELLED.
