A real beauty you have there buddy.

Thanks Cooks. I've owned it for a couple of years now and the previous owner had done around 1k mile in 6 years and kept it garaged. I went to see 5 before I found this one. I've had the front bumper repainted for a few stone chips and the rear one for a slight scuff on the corner that wouldn't polish out and the rest has clayed and polished up beautifully, they have a nice flat paint finish from the factory unlike the motley finish on some modern cars which helps
Like you say the hubs and calipers make all the difference. Stu who commented a few posts back gave me some good pointers on that front. He has exhibited at the classic NEC and won awards for his various MG's and always stresses the importance of how the wheels, hubs and calipers lift the whole car to the next level.
The underside was given a full Dinitrol rust proofing treatment at one of their specialist centres in February, bumpers and sill covers Off, arch liners and wheels removed etc and door cards, bonnet and boot trims removed to recoat all the inner body panels as well as the underside, floors and chassis . Hopefully she's good for a long time yet.

I totally agree. If you can see that the hubs and callers are as clean as the wheel faces, it really does lift the whole car.

Sounds like you have a keeper there buddy, and the rust proofing will definitely keep the underside nice and corrosion free.

It's a really beautiful example mate.

Cheers

Love these, fantastic looking things. Good mate of mine had a grey one few years back, he didn't like it that much and wasn't the most reliable thing about, but i really liked it. First and only supercharged motor i've driven, sound was awesome

That looks stunning! I actually prefer this shape s type r more than 2006 model.
I want to buy one as I think it will be a future classic.
I'd like a white one but it's so rare to find one.

That's a nice car.

I parted with my 3.0 S-Type earlier in the year due to horrific rust in the sill and floor which was completely invisible until the sill cover came off. Yours should hopefully stay solid for years to come now. I cannot see nice examples of these doing anything other than going up in value.

yes they are starting to creep up in value for the good Supercharged examples. i'm planning on keeping this one a good while, as it stays on the the driveway 365 days a year in all weathers hopefully i've done enough to preserve it for a good few years yet.
