Absolutely spot on. I watch Wheeler Dealers for the mechanics,not Mike. If Velocity want to reduce the time showing the mechanics of the cars then I truly believe that this is the beginning of the end for Wheeler Dealers. People are'nt going to want to sit and watch Mike Brewer for the majority of the show. Hopefully when viewing figures start to drop,this is just to save money remember, maybe Velocity might change their minds,I doubt it.
Changing a winning formula usually means its not a good thing to do,but.......

Laddish spivs like Mike are 10 a penny but Edd is a rare multiskilled master and nice bloke which is extremely rare in the modern age.

surely someone out there could make money by giving Edd his own show.

I thoroughly enjoy these articles every week. This particular one caught my eye as I had a 406 estate in the late 90s and agree with the authors sentiments. Today I have a new top of the range 5 series touring - fast, comfortable, practical and expensive, but not as comfortable or forgiving as my old 406. Keep the articles coming, and my other fav 'A Grand Monday' Read more


We went with my dad to see a used 406 in Stockport when I was growing up, I took a shine to an Audi 80 parked next to it and we ended up getting that instead,


Great motors. I never had one but drove a few. At the time I had several 306's followed by a couple of estate variants. These were more than large enough for a small family at the time.

Wind the clock back a few years and an older family, the 406 estate would have been top of the list.

Ok they don't have the Kudos of a German motor, but they were extremely reliable, frugal in diesel form, comfortable and highly practical as an estate.

I would say our current Superb estate is a very close modern interpretation. I have no complaints with that one either.

Quite a number of years ago I passed on our old 306 HDi estate to father. He is still running around in it today.

Have a feeling that the S-type numbers are going significantly drop soon as serious rust problems are coming more widespread. I recently found this out as i bought a 2003 S-type sport 200 with 67k and full service history. upon removing trims found that the outer and part of the inner sill had rotted away. 5 weekends later it was rust free. They are deffinatey worth saving and spending a few grand on to put right. the S-type is a nice drive and has been quite reliable and can be serviced yourself quite easily. Read more

I have a beautiful 2006 S Type.It has had a Type R body kit on it and it looks stunning.I have renewed the brakes including discs ,new Rad and hoses and Tyres.I intend to get the wheels refurbed soon and I have her serviced every year.I am in no doubt that this is a classic of the future.It is a real head turner and with the best car emblem the leaping Jaguar on the bonnet,it looks great.The power is superb.It is quiet,smooth and classy.Dont listen to these people that say they are old fashioned,they have obviously never driven a good example.My advise...........Get one.

The S type jaguar is pure class.i must admit that the earlier models were not as nice looking,inside and out but after the facelift they became a classic of the future.Fast,quiet they have a presence of class.Its a shame that it came out around the time of the Rover 75 because it seems to have been linked with it and it is a much more refined car than a 75.It has been successful because without the s type we would not have the beautiful Jags we have today.

Had my Zt CDTi auto for almost 16 years now ,and apart from keeping an eye on a few odd things and dealing with them before they are a problem. the car has Never let me down in all that time . A bit of a low miler at 147k at the moment . LOL. Read more

Had a mg zt t cdti in the family for nearly 10 years it is now on 221000 miles and apart from wear and tear ie shocks and brakes and general servicing has never let us down.

Fantastic car fun to drive even if it's a bit of a hard ride. ...


All sorts of theories about the ID of this RHD estate car, circa mid 50s, an American friend reckons it's a (US) 55 Ford station wagon, but I think it's British built. There is a name badge on the front wing. I haven't seen anything remotely similar anywhere. Anyone got any ideas? Read more

There is a dedicated following for this car as am one of many like minded enthusiasts who love the first "Baby Jag". On my third and planning a 4th in a few years when my present modified estate is passed to my wife. You only have to search on Facebook to see how many enthusiast groups there are for this little gem. People like me who will still be taking these cars to Jaguar shows to not let one part of jaguar history fall to the wayside. Read more

Yep I love hearing all the praise for x type jags I've had my 2008 20.d for 10 years & I love it!! What an excellent car it is with a beautiful clean running&very economical Diesel engine if only there could be a recognised system that could be fitted to the exhaust to reduce emissions further,it's only 149 g/ km now but with all this stupidity against good diesels a system like cgon or adblue could be fitted would reduce the emissions even further but no-one seems to be interested in studying this. So keep loving your xtype jags they really are an excellent car&will be a fantastic classic car.
