It's going quite well, but as you would imagine (it being a British car and all) it does have a couple things I need to fix.

Working on it is quite the experience though; never thought I'd come across a car where you have to take the wheels off to change the air filters.

Offers a unique driving experience, just like the SVX does.

Thanks for the follow up. Have toyed with purchasing these beautiful coupes, manual tranny. Reliability discussions have been, for the most part, good with the occasional "expensive repairs needed" story. Price range for used attractive too...any hints from your side as to potential problematic areas ?

Cheers,

You're welcome.

The information you have found from other discussions is correct. I will add that maintenance can be on the expensive side as well, especially if you have someone else do the work. On the positive side there's quite a few Jaguar and Ford parts which bring parts cost down quite a bit, more so on the early supercharged inline 6 models.

Both the early i6 model and the V12 share some issues along with each possessing specific ones as well. I'll pm with more details.
