Hi everyone Newby member here... I've owned 2 S-types (ford era) and an X-Type. Just scratched that annoying itch and bought a 4lt Celebration from Clarkes - Picking it up at the end of the month after a bit of work to cosmetically tart it up...
What is there going on in the Bristol / SW area over the next coming months?? I've never felt the need to join the club with the S-type but for some reason the XJS seems "special" - waiting eagerly for collection day!
I also bought a Celebration from Clarkes circa 11 years ago - and it's still going!!
What you get from Clarkes isn't necessarily a 100% perfect car, but it is a really good car that you can have confidence in and can expect a very solid base; it's deffo not a pup...although I'm sure you know this already.
Don't forget to post some pics when you pick it up...can we stop you?
I have the 4.0 Celeb and it is the dogs nuts! Having modern electronics there is less to go wrong - had mine nearly 15 years and the electrics have been spot on, as has the engine. Some body issues but nothing major - if the windscreen surround has not been sorted this may be an issue at some point; ideally when you get a chip in the windscreen have it pulled out to check.
