Hi Again Iain,

The Grin is a standard component of all Jaguars irrespective of model and year. There has been speculation that Jaguar were using some kind of additive to the air-conditioning gas that, after the briefest of exposures, forced owners to adopt a rather smug and self satisfied grin whilst behind the wheel. There have also been suggestions that this effect lingers long after exiting the car and will re-appear should the owner simply catch sight of their car from almost any distance. However, there is an obvious weakness to this idea insofar that the same grin manifests in owners of Jaguar cars that pre-date the introduction of air-con systems.

No-one knows for sure and the mystery continues to puzzle many Jaguar aficionados - and others who just don't get the same effect from their Beamers or Mercs. The best test to confirm your own infection is to check the vanity mirror - no grin, no Jag. However, if it is a Jag and there is no grin - you got no soul!:biggrin:

Good looking Jag but I'd be concerned that the pup looking on seems a little confrontational.

Advancing years, what can I say. Oh, now I remember...........
