A GTV in Spain... and a 159 import
I have a '99 GTV 3.0 V6 that I've owned since new, and is currently garaged down in Spain.
Back home, I'm currently looking to replace my Jag X-Type (3.0 V6 SE) with a 159 Sportwagon (2.4JTDM) - probably the ti, and probably an import. I'm speaking to a couple of importers, but they are being a bit slow coming back with quotes/dates. Spec vs. price looks good though.
I've been in a colleague's 159 2.4 saloon and was very impressed.
The GTV has done good service over the years (98K miles), and is currently 'resting' down in Spain. It recently needed some major overhaul work (engine rebuild, manifold, exhaust, radiator, brake discs, air con) but fortunately I found a great mechanic in Alicante who used to run his own rally team, and he obviously enjoyed working on the GTV - also the labour costs were much less than in the UK.
It's back in fine form now, and is in a covered garage when not in use.
Any advice on the 159 import welcomed.
