Hi All,

Picked up my XF 3.0 V6 2011 today. My only other Jag was an XJ6 which was an old rust bucket that I had in 1981. Loved that car though. Very impressed with my new one as well.

Thanks for letting me on this site. I look forward to reading the posts.

Regards

Gary

Thank you guys.

Yes Joe, wow.

Still working on getting the seat absolutely correct for me.

Hi Gary,

 

One thing I hate about some drivers is when you come round a traffic island this type of driver , who has gone round the island in the outside lane usually, pulls straight out into the outside lane on the dual carriageway and assumes you are going to drive slowly as a Jaguar is deemed by some to be an old man's car.

 

This happened to me last Friday with a young man in a white BMW.  I just put my foot down gently and the twin turbos did their job and I was 500 yards in front of him in seconds.

 

He tried the same manoeuvre at the next island with the same result.

 

Stupid boy!

 

Regards,

 

Peter

Same happened to me last week on a sunny day, now come on I have a 4.2 ltr V8 in the XKR pushing out 430 bhp with the Supercharger, The dual carriageway was on quite a steep incline upwards therefore I played with him accelerating/decelerating etc. Still a little boy at heart. Welcome to The Jaguar Owners Club Gary have fun with your new toy and if there is and questions you need answering then there is always someone on here that will oblige
