Hi Gary, and welcome to the Club.

That sounds like an awesome car you have there: Do you have any photos for us to enjoy? We do love to see pictures of our members' beautiful Jaguars.

Hi Gary, 

When you find  a good dealership loyalty kicks in on both sides.

Red on an XFR looks great.  There ia a black XFR I sometimes see in the local supermarket car park and it doesn't catch the eye.

Hi Gary from another newbie.

l Love the look of your xfr. Only had mine for three weeks. It went to the detailers on Thursday, can't wait to see the results. I'm already missing it, makes me smile every time I look out the window and see it sitting on the drive. Afraid im not massively knowledgeable about cars used to do brakes clutches points plugs in the old days now far to complicated for me.

Can tell you mines a 5.0 L  V8 xfrs pushing 550bhp and frightens the life out of you if you get a bit pedal happy.
