Hi everyone, I'm in the process of buying a 2009 JAGUAR - X-TYPE DIESEL SALOON (2.2d SE 4dr). I fell in love with it as soon as i saw it.

Now i've done a little more research ( should have done this before buying :-)i,m wondering whether ive done the right thing. It seems there are quite a few people slagging off this particular jag model. Any way it comes with a years warranty so hopefully any probs will be ironed out early doors.

Ray,have you got it home yet ?

Am thinking of getting an '09 2.2 Diesel estate and would be really interested to hear your initial thoughts

on the car once you have driven a few hundred miles.

For what it's worth the only recurring grumble I came across in my research was the 'dim' headlights,other than that the X-type appeared to come out as well as the usual German and Japanese suspects.

Good luck

I,ve had the car now for a week and a half. So far having covered around 400 miles.

It's early days however I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT :)

This is the first time i've ever bought a car without having seen it or had a test drive first :D

Main things i've noticed so far are the smooth ride, at least compared to my 2.0 tdi golf. Much kinder

over the pot holed roads we have to endure these days. Averaging 52 mpg although I drive like a granny these

days because I just don't care. Interesting you mention the headlights, all I can say is they are way brighter than the Golf

and I love the way they automatically level themselves when first switched on.

I haven't found anything that isn't working as yet, even the dab radio works a treat although I believe i'm in a good reception area.

One thing i was disapointed about was I was told the bluetooth wouldn't stream from the mobile or ipod etc.

So to get round this I had the garage fit a Parrot mki9200. This is an excellent bit of kit which will stream from any bluetooth device

also you can physically connect any device to it and it charges at the same time.

that sounds like my type of car and averaging 52 mpg,thats just incredible for a car that size.

looks like the headlight moans are not to be taken seriously which is nice to know.

Haven't seen the just the right low mileage car yet but I'm in no hurry,I know its out there somewhere.
