Sorry to be so didactic, but you would be a fool to go anywhere other than MotorcarsInc: it's that simple. Get AAA Plus, and you can be towed, free, to any of these places, including Plainville. This is a true full-sevice shop: restoration, repairs, sales,and storage. I cannot say enough about Dean Cusano: he is honest and true, which is extremely rare, especially amongst car dealers. But you already knew that. He has a parts inventory that is unsurpassed, save for SNJ Barrett. Ask anyone who has dealt with him. Not that it helps you directly, but he is a true enthusiast, not just a businessman, and currently holds the Slalom record for the US, in a Jag he built himself. IMHO, it's unarguable, no matter where you live. Do yourself the favor of, at least, talking to him.

I bought my fist Jaguar last year, a new 2015 XF, great car, but I always wanted an older one. So at Barrett-Jackson at Mohegan Sun, I bought a 1990 XJS V12 convertible. Now I want to get it checked out and make sure I avoid any problems. I have had BMWs for the last 20 years and in warranty I take them to the dealer and out of it I have had a great guy to too take care of them, but that was in Philly. I am looking for the same close to Miflord, CT. I looked on the Jaguar discussion group and J&J in Westport had good reviews, I emailed them and no response , then I called them and was told I would get a call back and they never did. I don't plan to beg to get service, so I am looking for other suggestions.
In order of closeness, I found these on Jagshops.com, but they do not have any reviews, so any info you have would be appreciated.

Motorcars Inc in Plainville had great reviews, but they are an hour away, so I would rather be closer. Any help would be appreciated.
