I just bought a 1997 Jaguar XK8. Do you have any advice in terms of maintenance and servicing?

I just purchased a one owner 1997 Jaguar XK8 with 50,000 miles on the clock. It has been garaged and is in excellent condition. It has 22 services stamped in the service book but there is no accompanying documentation. I intend to keep it for many years and would welcome your advice as to what I should asked to be checked or work carried out at the next service.

Head over to the Jaguar XK8 Enthusiasts Club (www.thexkec.co.uk/). Here, you'll be able to chat with owners and find out what real-world running issues you can expect.
