    (I actually had the same reaction. Mark pointed out that, between the Gen4 Camrys, ES300, and 1G Avalon, there are a lot of potential buyers! FWIW.)
    Whoomah!

    Is "Tokico" code for Dockers or something? Did I miss a meeting?

    Because I am a) lazy and b) father of two with no time in the evenings for car work (George knows of what I speak), the Camry and 328 are both heading to local shops for their 90k and 160k services, respectively.

    *stares sadly at his smoking wallet*

    I amused myself by looking at E34 and E39 wagons this morning--surprsingly cheap, but almost all high miles.
    Whoomah!

    No doubt. That's a big part of why I ended up with the XJR instead of a 540. Finding ~100k Jags was no issue, finding ~100k Bimmers impossible.

    After a friend's experience with a 540i-6, and other anecdotal eveidence, I am not buying an older V8 BMW. Even if they do sound sweet.
    Whoomah!

    Not in the case of the X308 - that is 100% a Jaguar design (XJ40 -> X300 -> X308) using all Jaguar parts. It doesn't share a single Ford part number except for the coolant. The S-Type an X-Type both have shared Ford parts, but not the XJ.

    True, but lots of cars share those types of parts. The cap is the same between a Saab and the Sierra/late XR4Ti... there are a limited number of thread sizes.
