Onother Jaguar


Recommended Posts

I currently drive a XF 3.0 DS which is my second XF I have owned this for about 3 years been looking over the last 12months at the XK models mostly convertible but out of my price range for what I want so I have opted for a coupe which I pick up next week. The model is a 2007 XKR portfolio 2007 in black with cream interior and metal finish dashboard just what I wanted, the sound of the car is owesome and my first petrol car in about 12 years what are current owners views on the XKR.

I made exactly the same move from XF3.0D S to XK nearly three years ago.

I loved my XF and love my XK even more: So much so that I intend to keep it until I find it too low to climb in and out. Hopefully that will be many years off!

I still adore that V8 growl. I prefer to listen to that rather than the sound system, so the radio is never used!

Mine is not the XKR, but I believe that the R is just as bulletproof as the normally aspirated XK, which is very bulletproof indeed.

Thanks Leo I'm the same I love my XF and as been a very good car but if I don't swap now I never will and to be honest with them fetching the latest XF out mine is soon going to drop in price so I think now is the right time for it to go. I am looking forward to the XKR the sound of the V8 is awesome I will probably be the same as you turn the radio off. Thanks again.

I'm on my second XK - the first was a 2007 4.2l XK. Had it for 3 years as a daily runner. Used it all over europe averaging 22k miles per annum and virtually trouble free.

I now have a 2010 XKR 5.0l - but this one is a keeper and gets used for pleasure driving only.

How do I feel about XKs - I'm planning to be buried in this one - they are probably the best performance luxury value-for-money car on the market.

Get yourself a good Jag indie workshop and even the maintenance costs will be reasonable for such a car.

Good luck with the XKR - I'm sure you'll enjoy it :thumbsup:

Cheers pick the car up tomorrow will see a difference with running cost ie MPG but looking forward to getting it a real head turner. Are the ok to use as a every day car I don't do a lot of mileage only about 5k a year and usually bike to work so this will be a weekend toy and go to some jag meets.
