Lovey to drive, some problems

Beautiful, comfortable, plenty of performance. Only problem is reliability. I have had an engine rplacement, failed throttle body sensor (twice), and circuit board on ABS pump.These have triggered off numerous occasions when the engine management system decided to go in fail safe mode. The OBD needs a lot of interpretation to discover the true fault, because one faulty joint can trigger off apparent faults across the whole system, I bought at 38000 miles and now it has done 113000 at a total maintenance cost of £18000, Jaguar dealers are expensive and no better than Jaguar specialists. Spare parts service is excellent
Currently the car looks almost as new, it drives perfectly and is a pleasure to own so I cant really complain!
