I had no idea the Duratec 3.0 V6 was still available post facelift. What a colour!



In thread too.

It wasn't, that car's been heavily messed with.

Oh yes I see - it still has the pre facelift tailgate. Front end smash taken as an opportunity to "upgrade" it perhaps?

I retract my submission. I wouldn't touch that with a bargepole.

Is it overly harsh to say I don't like the door speakers amidst the wood?

Is this stereo one of those molded into the dash ones that cannot be replaced with aftermarket without looking like a plastic carbuncle in the dash??

You have my sympathy if that is the case.

Yowzers. Gorgeous. (Wheels back to silver please, or maybe to the body colour?)

I want to hate this because only X308s and before are actual XJs for me, but, I love it.

This thing looks immense. What a lush colour - paradise green! 2.8 V6, Recaros, 19 stamps, manual. Sure, the fuel economy isn't going to be great but just LOOK at the thing. Rear seats look unused, the alloys are refurbished, and the paint gleams.

Perhaps £6000 is outrageous for such a car but compared to what it must have cost new, with inflation, it still seems compelling to me. Maybe you lurkers here in the smoker barge thread will agree.

Pretty certain that someone here will buy this before I can afford it, which won't be until January next year. smile



Lovely. But tiny in the rear for a barge. And you’ve just answered a non barge question for me; probably 30 years ago I saw an ur Quattro in Sheppards Audi/VW in Bishop’s Stortford in an incredible green. And now I know (think) it was paradise green. I don’t think the Avant shown has recaros, at least not recaros that meet my bolster related expectation for them.

Yep that's the badger - I'll update the original post thanks - interestingly that thread was 140 pages (on 80 posts per page settings) Presumably before going over 125 pages broke PH

You should link up with Tobinen and add cars by volume. smile

Call me a radical upstart, but how about we use this new iteration of the thread to focus on, say, cars which are a bit bargey, and which are being advertised for over a grand but no more than 5 grand?

Hmm? Just a thought. Maybe we could bend the rules on a Friday, which does appear to only represent around 24 of the 168 hours in a week?

Or I could just getmecoat?

Yes, Yes, I know I talked about bikes last time, I won't do it again!

Estimate well within thread, one MOT fail since 2006, the vast majority being clean with zero advisories and its freaking powder blue...
