    Give the X350 a go. Good ones go for around £8K (£9K for the R) for the mk1 facelift cars are a bit more. I'm a tad bias as I drive one ATM. I was a bit sceptical as I didn't like the height and rear 3/4, but you don't see those things when driving. Definitely the best Jag I've had (out of 10 or 11). Currently saving for an XKR mk2 as a fun car.

    I rather fancied a 4-litre X308 purely for eye watering cheapness, but was on a sticky wicket when the previous Merc packed up and need a cheap fix for the missus (hence the CLK cabrio for £1550). Anyway...

    You can pick those up for around £1K for an 'R' right scream.

    a 4-litre X308
    Try and lay your hands on a super v8. you should get good one for around £2K.

    I was lucky with my X350, £6K for 60,000 miles fjsh, with loadsa toys (now won't ever buy anything that doesn't have a heated front screen again). Had to drive it back from Brixham

    I've got an S Type which I picked up for a grand. It's like driving a yacht but **** me does it drink fuel.
