Hi David and welcome to the Club.

 

Seeing an XJ in Red will be unusual  ---  they all seem to be in Black round here.

 

Enjoy!

 

Regards,

 

Peter.

Hi thanks Charles,  thanks peter, yeah beeen looking for ages at any colour but the Fords favourites :- Black, White, Grey And Silver all the vehicles in the yard were those colours except the one I bought. Brough this fact to the salesmans attention and his reply seems ridiculous, apparently it was the sunami in Japan that caused the problem because the factory that supplied the pigments was demolished by the earthquake etc. that struck the mainland!!!!!! not really plausable in my book,  ICI have been making pigment for paint longer than I've been alive ford could purchased some from them however,, On the test drive I was so impressed by the cars performance I wish my wife could have been alive to enjoy it with me.  Thanks for your comments gents I look forward to many happy miles with the big cat,  Cheers
