i am looking at a few of the used v8 in the market. what are the common issues with this model?

other than the very loud engine sound and the ability to feel the engine running at the front/rear seats, i am pleased with the performance. i noted the engine oil leak is pretty common.

considering also the ls460. i enjoy the 5.0 sound better than the 4.6. its difficult to make a call. 


any advice from the 5.0 drivers here?

Was considering the 5.0V8 XJ when i was looking for an XJ. End up buying a XJL 3.0 SC. As it's my daily car, petrol cost was a major consideration. My regular JAG workshop highly recommended the 5.0 as the engine is more robust. With proper maintenance, the v8 is a good buy. If budget permits, please do get the 5.0 v8. Its becoming an endangered cat species. :)
