GTV to stay - Need another bus 530i or S Type 3.0?

Evening chaps,

The good news is the wife is on the nest, the bad news is I need another car...

I intend to keep the GTV but have options on an additional "family bus"

Same age, similar mileage cars are potentially available, the question is which one would you choose

2005 BMW 530i (3.0v6 one owner, main dealer service history, leather)

2005 Jag S Type 3.0v6 one owner, main dealer service history leather)

I am thinking Jag is an old mans car however it is at leat 2k cheaper

Not a lot!

Have previously had a 5 series BMW (E39 model)! Probably best car I have owned (of course not as fast or pretty as GTV V6), but that would be my choice! The S type jag would not appeal to me, although I can see why others like it!

Thought about a 159??
