Sadly, much of the dash on this generation of E-Class is unrepresentative of a car of this caliber. The seats on the other hand are pretty sweet.
Ooh, this is a good one. I have a couple of those.
I frequently use the 9 mil Harbor Freight gloves when working on the car to protect my hands in case my life-long dream of modeling rings and watches ever comes to fruition. I can only wear the gloves for so long though, since my hands get super sweaty in them and start to feel gross. I also have a few pair of… Read more
I think the only automotive use my adjustable wrench serves is in undoing the plastic oil filter housing on my VW’s EA888 four. I can’t see buying the special 36mm socket to do that the “official” way.
This made my Friday.
That’s a beauty. My FiL has an ’04 in black over biscuit and luckily hasn’t had too many issues with it. It’s yet to be seen if the X100 and later cars follow the X-type and XJS models back up the value ladder. Fingers crossed that they do.
Sorrysorrysorry. Typo on my part. I’ve now appended the C with a 3 and have shown 4 the door.
Thanks for sharing the story about your co-worker. The transmissions in these do have a reputation to scatting the bed at around 100K. It’s a shame that every cool old car gets replaced by some sort of cookie cutter crossover these days, but I guess it was the same thing that happened with the UJCs (Ubiquitous… Read more
It felt like a lot longer than just a week. I didn’t even have the time to grow my beard out, à la David Letterman.

To be honest, I fully expected a 100% vote. I guess I’ll just have to come up with something a little more polarizing in the future.
Mr. Norm voting from beyond the grave!
The biggest offense committed by the 348's designers was to replace the traditional quartet of round taillamp lenses with a pair of mundane looking rectangular units. To make the change even more egregious, the designers seemed to be hiding the lights behind the louvers, as though they know they should be ashamed of… Read more
That’s part of what makes me feel sorry for this seller. There seems to be a good bit of history with the car, but now it’s being presented sitting at a service station. Pile on the admission in the ad that whatever issue has befallen the car, it’s beyond the seller’s ability to fix or to find someone who can. Read more
I’d actually like to see a higher-achieving win than a loss. Call me an eternal optimist.
So what you are all saying is that the modifications made to this Jag... make you see red?
Excellent sleuthing! That was obviously a simpler time.
