    Default My Jaguar XJS on BBS RS and custom suspension

    I have aways loved the XJS and picked one up last year. I also like how nobody really lowers or mods these cars. Working for a suspension company allowed me to make a one off kit for this car. I must say that this was the probably the most difficult car we have ever had to put coilovers on. Took about 60 man hours of custom fab work to get it the way it is now and the ride is beautiful

    Also put on some refinished BBS RS's, Wood Nardi wheel and lambswool carpets. Next step is to make a exhaust and manual trans swap.

    Huge thanks to Ehrlich Wheel Works for the great work!

    This is absolutely incredible, would love to more details on the suspension setup. Love the XJS as a platform, this really showcases its true potential

    Everything I hoped it would be. Saw the thread title and said "yup, there we go.'

    The photos definitely look edited... but I believe the owner works for Fortune Auto... so I have no doubts that the actual car is real.

    Looking at the guys IG photo's, I suspect it to actually be real

    I think you could look at it as a compliment; your car looking too good to be true?

    Like I said, They appear the same way in multiple of his IG pics.

    Call me naive, but I think this fitment is genuine.
    I think it may look a bit odd because the saturation (especially the red) has been enhanced in the pics above.

    We just aren't used to non-stretched fitment on this forum.

    Yes they do run double shocks on each corner from the factory. We converted it to a more conventional single shock.
