As far as handling is concerned, the Jag is miles ahead of anything I have ever owned, and believe me, I have had quite a few cars.
The car takes corners like you would not believe, loves long bends and grips the road beautifully.
The J shift gearbox shift extremely quietly through the gears, it is hard to even notice a gear change.
Pick up from 0-80 is not super quick when auto mode is chosen, however switch to manual and it has plenty of power (still adequate in auto though).
The interior is luxurious compared to standard Australian production cars. The driver's seat is super comfortable, and can be moved any which way. The rear seats are also extremely comfortable.
The cars features make it hard to believe it is 21 years old, it drives and handles better than some newer cars I have had. My car does have Full Service History and was owned by a Jag lover.
As far as value for money is concerned, you cannot beat it. I paid $2000 for the car, I still cannot believe how good it goes for an older car.
For new buyers, make sure you check for rust as Jags are prone for it. My car however only has a couple of small bubbles appearing.
