I like the first ebay linked one.
However just a recommendation, you can get personalised ones on ebay -
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/VEHICLE-TAX-DISC- ... 73fec52b23
or i'm sure most sign making companys do them aswell. They have the adhesive and the plastic to make it!
1990 Jaguar Sovereign - 40,000 Miles - Ivory Green - 4.0
1994 BMW 5 Series 3.0 V8 E34 - 108,000 miles, 30,000 on new engine - Blue
2000 BMW 5 Series 3.0 Turbo Diesel E39- 104,000 Miles - Green
1997 BMW 5 series 2.5 Turbo Diesel - 119,000 Miles - Green
1992 Jaguar Sovereign - 3.2 - 56,000 Miles - Gold

They came with a dealer branded one when new. Here is mine.

The first one posted by Mark is similar to the disc holder fitted to new cars, I think. It looks OK in any event. I doubt a Jaguar one from a dealer would be that expensive either.

How about this one?? :lol: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/NEW-JAGUAR-Car-Ta ... 279b004017

good point david. i'll check dealer prices, as really i woudl like an genuine one, like yours for this sov.
heres the part number from jdht.
"License holder"
Daimler BD24427 Contact us
Jaguar BD21181 £4.25

it has no picture though. did a search with the part number, and it looks like this apparently. looks like its from a more modern jag, as opposed to one from 93 though? hmmmm

I would think the modern one will be like the first tax disc holder Mark posted, since they don't seem to use the smaller round ones any more. It does seem to have an old style "growler" too; the modern one is differently styled and a bit horrible. Strangely for a genuine Jaguar item, the font they use is wrong. I don't understand that.

'Genuine OE' from Black country Jaguar http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Jaguar-OE-Classic ... 230f5dca30

A different supplier, also claiming to be a genuine Jaguar part no BD21181, but this time with the correct font. http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/JAGUAR-TAX-DISC-H ... 1c1a06cb25
Could it be possible that this is the original part, and the one stocked by JustJags and Black country Jaguar are a later "genuine" part, remade for JDHT? The "Jagman0_6" disc holder looks more authentic than the "genuine" one to my eyes.

ok, think i have made decision on this. ideally i would like an original dealer one, but this is unlikely to happen unless i can pull one off a scrapper? so i may leave it for the time being but if not, my back up one is the one from the first link. am not that keen on the OE one, and not fussed on a design your own one either, but thanks for the suggestions.

Hi Naki, I feel very sorry for you having no logo on your tax disc holder. Whilst I appreciate black features a lot in your life, a bit of green and gold might not go amiss :D If you would like one of these self adhesive raised vinyl stickers for nowt ( not often I give something away!) PM me your address and I will bang one in the post for you. Don.
