how does one do the IMAGE as a link thing, like the porsche above?
Right click the image, click copy image address, then [img] paste link [/img] and then you get this:

L322 decided it doesn’t like me having other barges. Day after that e65 arrived I went out and the car had decided to have a leak from the front bag. £70 for a cheap replacement but the time/effort of doing it frown
Blame the E65. They're cursed I tell you....Cursed! Hope you get it sorted without too much agro (both cars!)

There should be quite a bit of life left in that. Good spot. Turn up with £1500 should secure Shirley.

...yeah, looks like its had a bumper respray and a ding on the front pass. arch - perhaps a clean of the leather - but otherwise looks in remarkable condition - i'm tempted but its over 150 miles away from me.

De-badge that and it’s Blandy McBland Face, but I’d like it more (not badge snobbery) due to the clean lines.

I really like that Skoda - my favourite VAG cars; massive on the inside. I really don't need one. But am tempted due to cheapness.

Does look nice and comfortable on the inside.... But totally the wrong gearbox for a barge. What is the ride actually like on these cars though?

The best ride in the world (WARNING: may be judged on 1am Ubers in the rain!).

I think even an S Line Audi on huge wheels would be the best ride ever under those circumstances laugh

One of my favourites under these unfortunate circumstances was an e38 728i on little wheels from Kew to South Ken. Lovely. The 4.2 Audi A8 in Oslo was good as well.

Holá from Córdoba. Minor update on day 5. I pranged the corner of a base of a fuel pump in Salamanca two days ago. Total pilot error on my part, my excuse being it was very early and I'd had no coffee. Old boy was more concerned about the car and we chatted about the mileage, though my Spanish numbers let me down so I drew the figure on the bonnet.

Result: A scrape on the OSF bumper and I put a hole in the headlamp. Duct tape at hand I patched it up. New headlamp required when I'm back.

Two rear bulbs have blown but on the plus side, zero oil usage so I have fixed that at least.

Málaga tomorrow for a couple of nights. Thursday no plan yet. Friday booked in to a hotel in Cáceres for the home leg.

Wonderful roads here and barely any traffic. Wish I had the CL but the E39 is doing ok, only let down by the driver.

Hasta luego bargistas

This is what it says when you try pick a gear despite you being able to see it has revs so is on. Just keeps going back to P. Got a obd2 diagnostic cable on the way to read some codes.
Save yourself some time here; buy a DCAN cable from someone like Cableshack; it comes with the software, you just need a laptop to install it on. Once you get it up & running, use INPA to connect to the car, read & clear error codes etc. Then use Toolset32 (aka Ediabas) to connect to the individual modules & read remaining error codes in detail. Mine has paid for itself several times over during the last few years.

I hope you don't mind me joining this thread from across the pond. I am about to finish up my current lease, so now on the lookout for a barge to waft around in while I decide what to do next.

Found this glorious piece of classic British Gerald on my local Craigslist for $3500:

Poor quality photos aside, its an XJ8 Vanden-Plas, LWB with seemingly 43k miles.

I know very little about this model of Jag (Especially the oily bits)

Any advice?

The facelifts always look in decent nick because the lights don’t cloud like the pre-facelift. I could be wrong but don’t think any facelift would have had those wheels but probably swapped at some point. Cheap motoring.
