Is a 1997 jaguar xjr with only 50,000 miles on it worth getting for 7k ? The guy said it’s never seen snow or rain, always stored in a garage during winter and maintained every year ?

Taku Mandirahwe says:

Are you going to do any exhaust mods to your xjr.
Also just bought a xjr a month ago but mine is green it's a 99

KL says:

Love it nice job ..

TheNortheastAl says:

Many people can’t believe a brake and rotor replacement is that easy. The only thing I would do is to check the brake fluid reservoir after you finished to make sure the level is good. Another great instructional video, EJ.

How’s your BMW?

Steve McRae Manager says:

Have you done a wheel bearing yet? I'm pretty sure I have a bad one on my XJ8 x305
