sad by the news that the xk is to be axed. my father always wanted a jag. but being a normal working man it was out of the question, i worked hard all my life and built up a small bussnies. due to the wifes health problems sold it and retired to look after her  having owned some nice cars in my time ie bmw mercs in my time i allways wanted a sports car. was going to buy a 911 but seen the jaguar xk and fell in love . nice retirement pressie the shape done it. slate grey ivory leather black alloys, it was a done deall. the f-type is nice . but not as nice as the xk. to short to mutch like the bmw z4.  whom i suppose is ther main competitor . im keeping mine love it . call it magic. the rest wer called bettsie  welcome your thoughts charlie

Charles,

 

Really like the XK , but I can see their reasoning; I think the F Type Coupe when it released shortly, is going to blow most things out of the water .

 

Was planning on getting one, but repairs to the house after the storms have put my plans back for this year .

 

Just wished I'd hung on and not wasted a load of money on the Aston Martin DB9's I had , the most overpriced and overrated cars ever .

 

But my Supersport is fine, and there's always next year (weather permitting !) .

 

ATB,

I couldn't agree more about the xk. I have an older model, drives beautifully and looks the business to boot! Mine needs a bit of cosmetic work but so far (18 months I have had it) appears 1st class mechanically.

Steve,

 

Re my post above, looking back  and knowing what I know now, I really wish I had bought the XK over the Aston Martin DB9, is is a superior car in every way, and a darn sight cheaper, but you live and learn.

thanks for your replys guys. my sons last year booked me a nice present for my birthday not a stripper i must add, a day out with some super cars . 2 choicies. 1 lap of a track or a road run. took the road run. the eldest came to. nice senic route up by stirling called the green welie . cars wer . bmw m3. astin martin vanquish , ferrari 430, audi r8. thought the astin was really nice inside and wat a sound from it was brill but thats about it compared to the xk. the m3 again wasnt that mutch impressed. ferrari was like a go cart but was highly impressed . the r8 in my humble opinion was fantastic . looked great sounded great, and went like s###### . but im over the moon with my xk . wen the wifes not with me and i get the cance i open it up . shes mine hopefully for a long time yet. charlie
