Just acquired a 54 plate, 2.5 V6 X type SE auto saloon. Couldn't resist it in a beautiful Jag Racing Green, with just 72k on the clock.

Lovely interior but a few surprises in things lacking.

No lumbar support even on the drivers seat, and no heated seats. Just changed from a Skoda Octavia that has these features and more.


Lovely cream leather interior, AWD, and a huge boot. Sills look good, almost showroo condition, just  few paint chips and a corroding black trim on the window ledge trim.


A couple of questions for the experts.


1) There is a back ground “noise” from either the road or the AWD system. Is the AWD normally noiseless or is a alway a background rumble for want of  better word? 

2) Anywhere I can find out the original spec and extras fitted? Again surprised that the red lenses in the front door do not illuminate but the front footwells do. That seems qute a pointless function. Who want to see your feet?


Anyway, looking forward to learning to live with the X type
