POTENTIAL buyers of a Jaguar XJ model from 2003 to 2009 which are regarded by many Jaguar enthusiasts as the last of the traditional Jags should not buy one of these cars without first consulting a new book written by a Doncaster author who is a top expert on the famous marque writes Bryan Longworth.

It is “The Essential Buyer’s Guide Jaguar XJ6, XJ8 & XJR. All 2003 to 2009 (X-350) models including Daimler” by Nigel Thorley published by Veloce Publishing Ltd priced at £9.99.

And the publishers say: “Having this book in your pocket is just like having a real marque expert by your side.

“Benefit from Nigel Thorley’s years of XJ experience learn how to spot a bad XJ quickly and how to assess a promising one like a professional - get the right XJ at the right price!”

Brought up on Jaguar ownership Nigel who lives at Auckley got his first Jag at 17 and has since owned 67 Jaguars and written 20 books on the world famous marque.

He is a founder member of the Jaguar Enthusiasts Club being one of its directors and is editor of its prestigeous Jaguar Enthusiast magazine.

Nigel says the cars covered in his latest book which were coded X-350 by Jaguar heralded in a new era of high technology with aluminium bodywork new methods of construction and sophisticated air suspension.

But they retained the continuity of traditional Jaguar styling before the new breed of current Jaguar cars were introduced and that is why anyone considering buying one of the X-350 XJs should see what Nigel has got to say about them before parting with their money.

He adds: “There has never been a better time to consider buying one of these XJs with plenty of choice available at superb value for money. Enjoy!”
