hi, i wouldnt worry to much as they are built to a realy high quality and they do last well. They can be expensive to repair if anything does go wrong but this only tends to happen if the car has been raced around alot.
The engines on these will last ages you should find you will never have any problems just keep it serviced regular and use the best oil you can as this will prolong the life of the engine.
Dont worry to much as these cars will run and run and have very few problems the key is to look after it and get it serviced regular.
You made a good choice buying the car so dont worry as they very often have problems just look after it but with a car like that im sure you will.
Check service history and the last time it had full service if this wasnt recent then get it done as soon as you can use only the best oil and youll never have no problems.
Hope you enjoy your car and the best thing is they dont tend to lose money so as a resale point of view you have made a good choice.
If you have any questions just give me a shout back as i have been a mechanic for the last 11 years and have never done any major work on your make of car the only work i have done is service and valet so good luck and happy driving.

To get to the cabin air filter on an XK8 or XKR, you have to do the following steps (I know these steps sound ridiculous...as in many cars there is just a simple cover in the engine compartment... but...): The air filter is under the black plastic cowl or plenum that is just under the windshield wiper blade connectors. To get to that, you must 1. carefully lift off the plastic covers that reveal screw heads. Remove the screws. 2. lift off the plastic covers that are on the top of each windshield wiper connector - under the cover you will then see a nut or bolt that has to be unscrewed. 3. Using a small puller (the puller that lifts off battery terminals works for this) lift off each windshield wiper and disconnect the rubber hose from each. 3. lift the car's front hood, and remove the plastic cowling (you also have to lift the side rubber runners and a rubber strap from each side that holds up the rubber drain hoses). Once you remove that plastic cowling, you will see the air filter plenum at the back of the engine area. The air filter should come vertically out of that. (This air filter does not exist on my 2000 and earlier editions...I am not sure what year Jaguar installed them.) Full instructions are on the Jaguar JTIS CD which you should obtain...look online for that.

">firstly do not pay more than a 1000 GB pounds for it because thats all its worth in the UK ,these cars are great but?? their petrol gobblers unless its a diesel and when they go wrong they cost a packet to repair when in reality their easy to repair its just the name like a merc or BMW the garages always try to bleed the golden sacred cow ,i have a XJ6 1994 and i had it given to me because the garage wanted too much to repair it ,i fixed it in a short while with bit from the scrappers and i now have a donor car in the garden and since i have had the donor car it hasnt gone wrong at all .The XJ6 is mine not the E type by the way,also consider joining a jaguar owners club look on www,jec.org.uk for your region or country
