First up, the basics:
MOT expires Friday 16th August 2013.
Road tax expires Tuesday 30th April 2013. This will remain on the vehicle. I can add six months (£121) or twelve months (£220) tax at buyers cost.
Milage is currently at 98069 but that will increase slightly as the car is still being used. That's only 1380 miles since it's last MOT.
The owner before me, an elderly lady, had the car from October 2002 until November 2012 when I bought it.
The car passed the last MOT with no advisories, as it had done since 2006. Previous MOT details are listed below.
16/08/2006 - 70744 miles - Advisory: Rear axle oil seal leaking
17/08/2007 - 75526 miles - No advisories
29/07/2008 - 80190 miles - No advisories
05/08/2009 - 85250 miles - No advisories
06/08/2010 - 89584 miles - No advisories
22/07/2011 - 93068 miles - No advisories
28/07/2012 - 96689 miles - No advisories
All of these MOTs were done at Commonside Service Station, Brierley Hill, West Midlands, DY5 4AE. Tel: 01384 77821
I've replaced the battery (a new Bosche battery with five year guarentee (Receipt present)) as the old one was dead.
Back in November the car developed a misfire and my local garage diagnosed it as a faulty coil pack. I replaced all six coil packs and the misfire stopped. I've driven over 500 miles on these new coils now and the car has not missed a beat!

Back in November, a week after I bought it, it developed a misfire after being driven for about 30miles. Once the engine cooled down, it seemed to return to normal, and was therefore diagnosed as a faulty coil-pack.
£110 later on eBay and six new coil-packs were installed, and this seems to have fixed the problem. I did a 200mile trip last week without even the slightest glimmer of misfire.
I have also had to buy the big cat a new battery after another visit from the AA diagnosed a properly dead battery that was only managing 240 cranking amps when the Jag needs 650. £130 later and we're back up to speed.
Next on the list is a service, with some new engine oil, a new oil filter and new gearbox oil.
My LPG conversion was booked for this week, but with the dead battery, and the possibility of engine troubles, i've delayed it by a couple of months just to make sure everything's working properly.
