My first Jaguar

Recommended Posts

Good day everyone. I've just recently purchased my very first Jaguar; a 2001 XJ8 Executive.

This is a marque I've coveted for most of my life, but now I have retired I've finally taken the plunge.

she's not a new model by any means, but I believe she is a beauty which has been well cared for by her previous owner of 12 or so years. She has done quite low mileage and drives like a dream.

I'm still familiarising myself with your forum so not sure if the picture will come up.

 

Regards

No, sorry picture not working. Think my internet is too slow at the moment. I'll try again when it's running a bit faster.

Many thanks for all you replies and advice.

 

Yes I've tried a few different ways on your system but I think it is my ISP that is the problem. I have to rely on satellite internet link and it has been causing me a few speed problems lately. Also my laptop is getting on a bit and giving the odd blip.

Maybe time for an update methinks.

Neville,

 

I suppose being realistic you do live in Norfolk , which makes us Devon peeps seem advanced ( only joking)

 

It sounds like your ISP is the problem ( who are you with) , you should be able to connect via broadband without any hitches . Your computer should be ok.

 

I'm with Plusnet and find them fine.

 

ATB,

 

Trevor

 

P.S, You could always try buying a different router as the ones the ISP's send out are rubbish, I have a Netgear, and it is excellent .

Or Amazon

Yes Trevor you are VERY advanced compared to this part of Norfolk.

 

I have NO landline broadband, NO mobile phone coverage and sporadic Terrestrial TV, so rely pretty much on satellite for everything. It's my own fault for living here, but I love the place.

Bread! BREAD?

 

Can't afford bread now I've got a Jag.

 

The powers that be say: "let him eat cake".

 

BTW, what part of Devon are you in? Hope to be down your way later in the year. (Honiton area).

 

Regards

 

Nev.

Thanks Richard, Yes I'm very pleased with her.

 

Never had a cherished number before, but couldn't resist this one. 

 

I felt the old lady deserved something a little special and dropped lucky on this one. Bought direct from DVLA at a very reasonable price.

 

I just hope that I can treat the rest of her in the manner to which she has obviously become accustomed. 

 

Regards

It's cheaper to change your name by deed poll to the number plate.

 

 

Probably true Trevor but would only confuse the wife. She has problems with Nev at times.

Kind regards
