This is my first posting here. I am shopping for my first Jag. I'm looking at 98 to 00 VDP's. I recently saw this car:
On ebay but it is at (or slightly above) the high end of what I'm willing to pay for something with no remaining warranty.
Regardless, I expected to see it snatched up at the buy it now of ~$38K. As it was, the bidding never got over $33.6K. This for a 2000 VDP Supercharged.
If the mileage was 10K lower (such that there was a little warranty left), I would have been all over it.
Does anyone know details of this specific car or care to speculate on why nobody was willing to pay more than $33.6K for it? Mileage? Flashy wheels?
A couple that products/sources I found in a quick search are:
I don't relish the idea of paying $250 for a broken foglight or $??? for a broken headlight.
The service history I got for the car includes two "replace headlamp" lines and one "replace headlight" line so I'm thinking that the probability of one of these getting broken by a rock or ??? is high enough to at least warrant consideration.
The mechanic at the jag dealer that inspected the car I recently bought recommended getting them but said they had a third party who came an installed them with a process that involved heating the plastic overlay or glass light housing or both. The ones linked to above look like they just stick on with an adhesive.
I'm curious whether these things are nearly invisible or noticible and ugly. Also how they deal with age and whether they can be removed and replaced if they lose clarity or yellow over time.
If I don't hear anything overly negative here, I'll be buying enough to do two of the lamps to see how they install and look. I'll post some info here if/when I do.
