Jaguar XK8 XKR (X100) New Replacement Vehicle Car Handbook

Jaguar XK8 XKR (X100) New  Replacement Vehicle Car Handbook

It is surprising how many XK8 / XKR owners (including myself before I managed to buy a used one!) do not have this handbook as part of the guides originally supplied by Jaguar. Either it has been taken out of the car to read and not put back or has been mislaid. It is a top level guide to understanding and caring for your XK8 and XKR. It will save you time and money if you follow the guide and undertake some of the basic checks and maintenance yourself. Also you will have a much better knowledge and understanding of the car. The guide is intended for mid range XK8 and XKR’s around 2000 and 2001 but the majority of the information applies to both the earlier and later cars.
