My jide and proy is just turning 6 years old now, and due its MOT on Wednesday. It is just 25 miles or so short of turning 10k miles, so have decided not to use it until MOT passed.....as it will. I have just got this thing in ma heid to have only four figures on this MOT, rather than the five.
Is there any help available out there for this......?

Kev, the XJ is designed to be driven and enjoyed. There is no virtue in it sitting on your drive, making like a brick, albeit a nicely shaped brick. Get yee in it and go for a drive!!

Oh, Kevin. 6k miles in a year? I WALK 6k miles in a year! (Exaggerates for effect. :sneaky: ). I've put 32k miles on mine in the 2 years I've owned it. She still looks and feels like new. (When she's had a good wash . . . dirty girl! )

Plan was to allez a la France in it this year, John, so no scared of well using it in the least but need to stop finding excuses to drive it unless a decent distance. This bliddy cigar virus thing has hit France on the heid naturally.
