JAGUAR S-TYPE R SUPERCHARGED first spring clean.

a few pics of my 2002 Jaguar S-TYPE R. I took advantage of a rare warm day in the north east today so far this year to detail the exterior after a long winter.
after washing the car i used a Farecla clay mitt to remove any crud that had lay on the car over the last few months. i machine polished the exterior panels with Bodyline ultimate compound to remove the very fine swirls which could be seen under the artificial lights, i found it to be far better than the 3M polishes that are used normally in the bodyshop where i work, it gives a much deeper shine i found.
i finished off with Autoglym super resin polish followed by Autoglym high definition wax for the paintwork, autoglym glass polish for the windows and meguires tyre gel.

I love these and I think they are/were massively underrated.

One thing about them, if I remember correctly, was that it was the only S-Type that didn't have folding rear seats, so as to retain the structural brace behind them. Never seen one in the flesh to check however.
