May's Car of the Month- Jaguar S -ype
Hard to imagine its May already and we have Duncan Woolgar's 2000 Jaguar S-Type. As its the S-Types 20th anniversary since launch we felt it was fitting to feature one in our 2019 COTM.
Duncan decided to buy this car in Jan 2017 having seen it in a dealer showroom as he walked past. Every time he went past it, it winked at him. Alarm bells should have rang when the salesman suggested the car needed an enthusiast! This car is a 3litre Jaguar S type manual gearbox in Sea frost. Millage is just over 80k it is used a daily driver.
Since buying the car Duncan has refurbed the optional BBS wheels, renewed wishbones, springs, shocks, discs, radiator, air con, welded sills, waxoiled underneath, upgraded the sound system, fitted a reversing camera, replaced head lining, wood dash trim. Plus the usual service items. He loves the balance between performance comfort and practicality (rear seats fold down). An average of 25mpg with a good 30+ on a run. Above all he loves the styling.
