Re: Value S1 Jag e-type 4.2 LHD Roadster

Hi James,I find the E type market totally confusing,why in the world would someone pay 55k for a project series one coupe,when one of the people on this forum has what looks like a really nice series one coupe for sale at 85k? Regards Gerry 62 0ts Ontario Canada. You're not the only one Gerry :?:

Re: Building a Realm C type

Yeah, meant is it sacrilege to have it out in the rain! I love tonneaus; used to drive my TR4 in snow and ice with the roof off, with a 3/4 tonneau done up and heater on full in the footwells.
What about a hood? Or do you get wet when it rains?

Does it have a tonneau for when it's left in the rain? Or is that sacrilege?

Re: Buying MWS wheels

Carsten, are you a member of the E Type club or Jaguar Driver's Club? If so, you get a 5% discount from SNG. Worth considering if you buy a lot of stuff - one big purchase like wheels could pay for membership. Then you get all the nice mags for free!

Re: Personalised number plates

That's interesting David - they've obviously developed the system. I was at a presentation from the police where this was explained, but that was some years ago!

Re: Winter layup advise

I'm no expert here as anyone will tell you, but I don't think it's a great idea. It takes ages for the car to reach proper operating oil temperature, and if you're going to start it, it needs to do that. My car normally starts on the button, but when I leave it for weeks, mine also takes a fair numb...

Re: Personalised number plates

You're certainly right about the money David. Not so sure about the police loving them though. Although the public may recall them, the police don't like them unless, like Steve, they are displayed correctly (Legally) That's because ANPR systems can't read them when they aren't correctly displayed, ...

Personalised number plates

We all know they're illegal if the spacing has been altered at all, wrong coloured studs used, etc. But everyone who buys therm does just that, otherwise why buy them? So, how come I get about 3 emails every week from the DVLA advertising their sale of "personalised" number plates? DVLA encouraging ...

Trying to think of the similarity between him and John (or JJ, or JC((???)), signature has morphed over time and gone now, so apologies if I've got the name wrong) Harry Potter is of course ...

Re: Valuation.

I would really prefer paying someone who knows exactly what there looking at to give me a more exact figure. Without being negative, I'm not sure you'll find this. It's not a product like gold, which can be weighed, or stamps, with a catalogue price. It's worth what someone will pay for it, not rea...

Is the message at the top of the screen a tad premature David? I've just got up and it's Christmas! Happy New Year to you as well if it was meant to be there :bigrin:

I'd be interested to hear feedback! Then I can NOT buy it if it's rubbish!
Seriously, a few pics posted would be good.
