    If I had the cash...

    or

    or

    https://www.gumtree.co.za/a-cars-bak...60910992240709

    All in CT.

    I love these XJ's but the struggle for parts is real and if I wanted one, I'd want a manual, which is hard to find...

    I also have the number of a banned forumite you might want to phone. PM me for his number.

    Thanks, I had a look at all three. The 1994 is nice and original but needs some work. It is the 4 cylinder 2,5 manual and the clutch is on its way out. The R39000 is not for sale any longer. The Blue one for R55000 is ex Gauteng. Looks ok but had some work on the rear. I am going to look at a nice one tomorrow.

    I mentioned one day in a post that he "will be along shortly to comment" when I was curtly informed he is banned, and that's like having an uncle in jail...nobody talks about it.

    Keep us posted.

    A bit overpriced then for a clutch on the way out, or is the seller unaware?

    Not sure if he knows. I try and keep a straight face when I test drive cars. Had a bad shudder on pull away. Could have been a mounting too. This one is actually nice and original. Had top done (head gasket). New pistons,rings, bearings. Aircon not working. Some clear coat peeling on roof. I I was in the market for a project, I would have bought this.

    Bob, I don't know where you get your facts, but I fear you have it wrong...

    What parts for XJ's are difficult to get? ALL parts are relatively easy to get from the stealers (at a price though!), but plenty of pirate spares from Autoparts companies for much cheaper. And if you're not in a hurry, quite cheap to import parts. The only 'struggle' is to get cheap parts for things that are RHD specific (eg radiator hoses). This usually is stealers only and they charge!

    A manual XJ is not hard to get, they are IMPOSSIBLE in 4 lit petrol (only came in auto*), but the diesels are all manual. There are plenty diesels for sale, but they are even more notorious for braking down than Disco 3's.

    * I know of ONE 4lit petrol in manual, but it's a LHD two door import... from one of the very first issue XJ's.

    Love.

    And if I could keep two XJ's happy, yours would have been parked in my yard.

    Yeah the XJ is for sale ... but not overly advertising it at the moment.

    About R10k short, and more than likely needs some work (or spit and polish at least)

    There is also a very scarce (well from what I've seen) 2.5 Petrol model. My brother had a WJ and as far as parts go (and since I buy about R250k's worth a month, I have some contacts) we couldn't find aftermarket stabilizer links for it, prices from agents was crazy. We once hunted for a fuse, that the agents couldn't assist with, eventually got one from a fellow WJ owner. If you use something for a daily drive, as he did with the WJ, you can't wait to have it imported.

    Agents are getting fewer as well...
