    Check out the rear window. Doebag will put me right (I hope), but I think the 3.4 had a smaller rear window than the 3.8.

    Over to you Doebag.

    Regards,

    I dont think so, but stand to be corrected. Without going too far off topic, the MK2 Jag was preceded by what was retrospectively called the MK1 . before that, the MK1 was just known as Jag 2.8 and 3.4. These earlier models had the same body shape but with much thicker door pillars and front and rear windscreen surrounds.

    AFAIK, the S-type windows were the same as the MK2

    The 3.8 only came as a MK2 model, and yes the colour of the Badges on the radiator grill do reflect the engine size.

    Again some real pistonheadshere.

    The mk1 had smaller rear screen and was only 2.4 or3.4 The rear wheel arches had lower spats and the front grille had wider slatts.I will check DVLA by the registration for the litre and post it.The dvd release date is july.At least I can upgrade my dvd.

    I presume you mean the 2.4 or 3.4 Jags that the retro S-Type paid homage to.

    Another piston head here to add my tupence worth! The classic 1960s jaguar was indeed called an S Type, Jaguar just nicked the name of a classic 60s icon to give a modern 1999 car a bit of "retro style" in the same way that BMW nicked the name of "Mini Cooper" to make a new version of a 60s car.The classic S- type was introduced in 63-64 and the modern S-type as you say was introduced in 98-99

    I didn't notice in the credits, but according to imdb George Markstein was one of the four *writers*, credited in this movie. Was his name actually on-screen does anyone know?



    This must have been one of his first non-journalistic gigs............. He's mentioned as a *script consulant* in *Not so Jolly Roger*....... but was not a writer and even in the final two episodes of Danger Man, he's an *editor* rather than a *writer* ......



    *Arrival* must have been one of his first actual writing credits...........



    Anyone know the esoterics of all these working titles and duties ?

    The project must have been almost coincident with The Prisoner. That opening gassing scene struck me as *reminiscent* when I watched the opening scenes.....



    Three writers, one of whom is the director as well? And an original story from a fourth....



    Written by a commitee?



    Any clues as to who did which bits?
