I love my X-Type Gallery


Recommended Posts

As on any car forum, there are more threads about "How do I fix?" than "I love!" - so it seemed like a good idea to start a gallery and "What I like best" thread!

So here goes -

This is my recently acquired 2007 2.2D 155BHP manual that I am utterly in love with! It was quite difficult getting the hang of its very different driving style after 15 years of quasi-characterless VAG cars, but now I've got used to it, it's a delicious car to drive that my wife can barely pry me out of... Unlike the VAGs! As yet it is completely stock, although I've ordered the chrome door pillars from Adamesh that will give it a mote retro look that I like.

British Racing Green is a very rare colour here in France - they like blacks, greys and silver - so I'm especially lucky to have found it!

Round here - in the villages between Paris and Orleans in France - it gets a fair few appreciative looks and thumbs-ups from the natives...

Very nice! White suits it - which I find is rarely the case for more ordinary cars.

Meanwhile, mine has been Adameshed! I like the retro look so I decided to reinforce it a bit...




Unfortunately, here in France it is illegal to modify the exhaust system in any meaningful way, so the only option available without risking trouble at my next MOT was the Jag-made exhaust pipe trim. Ideally, a twin exhaust would have been better...

Just had a look at the pictures of other members Jags.

Just like to say nice pics and what great looking cars.

I'm new to the club having just bought my 2002 X type 2.1SE. Its the first Jag I have ever owned and I've always wanted one ever since being a little chappy.

Mine has 80K on the clock and has been owned by one lady owner, it has all the MOT's and a full Jaguar service history with all the bills, it has full leather interior with all the mod cons, the only thing it has'nt got is the heated seats! But who cares, I'm still driving around in a JAG!!!!

The only thing I'm thinking of changing on it is the back-box to one with a chrome finish, I think it will give it a better finish.

      Jaguar is commemorating the end of its internal combustion sports car lineage in 2024 with an exclusive limited-edition F-TYPE inspired by two iconic 1960s racing E-types

      Just 150 examples of the F-TYPE ZP Edition will be the last internal combustion-engined sports cars designed by Jaguar. These 575PS supercharged petrol V8 F-TYPEs feature specially curated interior and exterior details by the personalisation experts at SV Bespoke.
