Hi guys. Not been on here in a long time. Not since I sold my old sovereign. Think I have the bug again so my wee xk8 has to go to make room lol

What’s prompted the move back? Dare I ask what’s gone wrong with the XK8? Besides the engine, box, suspension, electrics and body? ;)

Nothing is wrong with it at all. Goes great. Comfortable. It's had a fortune spent on it. It's wanted for nothing. I was just going to get rid of my rover 75 everyday banger and xk8 to have one saloon.

The XK seems to be starting to gain more status lately, At least the better cars... I read it a few weeks back. :D
