I have to say after owning two Range Rover Classic 3.9 V8’s, I’m a little scared of any V8 engine. I’m also a relatively new XJ40 owner and have had nothing but great experiences with this and the two XJ-S’s I’ve had in the past and the AJ6 engine in general. I’ve read all about Nikasil bores and a pal of mine reluctantly had to get rid of his Daimler V8 (X308?) after years of problems. Has anyone run/owned both cars? Is there a great deal of difference?
I’d be interested in opinions
