If there's a cure for this I don't want it

Recommended Posts

Ok club members, I’m hooked. I brought my first Jaguar, a 2006 S-type and a real beauty (see photo #1).  My 83y.o. mother saw photos of it and wanted one for her own. I should add that I’m in London and she’s in Indiana. So being the good (and only) son, I bought her a 2006 S-type. It needed quite a bit of attention and I’ve made sure that is sorted. She loves it! (See photo #2) The interior leathers will get a good clean and conditioning in a fortnight. Now for my dilemma.

I am thinking of another purchase. This time a 2010 XF. I haven’t found the right one yet but I’m looking. Have I lost my mind? Clearly there’s no cure.

Well done, Gary.

The s type keeps you young -- even where I live which is only 6 miles from the factory you still get head turns when you drive past. I know, I am also 83.

Regards,

Peter.

Peter, I thank you for your kind words and wisdom. I will let my mother know that one of her contemporaries shares a passion for adventure! I did warn her against testing the 170mph limit of the S-Type. Her response: You know that I have a heavy foot.

Wow what engine has got 170mph power.

Interestingly My V8 S-type was "limited" to 155 but I saw an indicated 165 and it was still accelerating, so who knows?

Surely that picture of the lady wearing a red top isn't your Mum as you stated she is 83yrs old?   Anyhow, nice to read how she became a Jaguar owner.  Moving on, the XF is such an amazing car.  Luxury travel and every drive is a treat!  I used to own an X type which is a totally different car. I can't comment on the S type as I havn't owned one of those, although I am told they are also very comfortable.  I love my XF 3.0D Premium Luxury (2011) but if I where looking for a replacement I would have a look at a Portfolio S.  

Regards

Graham
