The car has about 277000 kms

To get a roadworthy it needs a few things but many of these can be performed by anyone with a bit of mechanical knowledge. These include master brake cylinder, speedo transducer leaking and rear brakes.

The car has some rust on the scuttle board under next to the windscreen and some very minor rust in the door jam.

See below for pics.

G'day

My name is **** and I'm using Zaff's login to reply to these posts.

The car was hit by an old lady two years ago in the left rear quarter panel was replaced and resprayed.

The central locking does not work properly and the left front windows switch doesn't work however the window will go down using the driver side main switch. Also, the boot release button doesn't work. It would not take much to get them working again though.

Apart from that, all electrics work.

The interior is in good condition for it's age. Ofcourse the centre console bin floor is broken (like all good xf's) but the seats and carpet have no rips or tears. The dash has always had a dashmat on it so there is no sun damage.

The car is in Bundoora.

Now that I have other expenses I don't have the time to fix the xf so if anyone gives me a reasonable offer, it's theres!

hey ****, thanks for the reply - i am interested in the car (i love them in white!) you got any pics of the rear by any chance? it's just i am in Berwick and it's a long way. those problems with it are nothing - typical xf stuff. how old is the gas system? i'm guessing its auto. who lowered it? how old is the suspension? did you get the cam installed?

I haven't got any pics of the rear of the car. Anything you want to know in particular?

The gas system would be about 6 years old but I would have to double check the compliance plate. And yes the car is an auto.

I got it lowered at Midas in 1999 along with the extractors and exhaust.

I bought a reconditioned engine from HPM in 2002 and while my mechanic was installing it I asked him to put the cam in. The engine is still under warranty. The original XF cam is crap cos it's made of a soft metal that wears over time whereas the new cam is made of a stronger metal that will not wear. It's also better designed specifically for a car on gas.

If you want any more info you can email me directly on:
