    Jaguar... Level Up

    It's been just over 5years since I had to downgrade somewhat from my last XF. In between I've scratched the Jag itch a little with a couple of S-types and even gone for different cats in the form of Pumas but all have been a bit ropey and rusty.

    In the last few weeks however, the stars and planets have aligned and this thing is now sitting on my drive as of today. And it's pretty fcuking epic

    I’ve always had a love for these. What’s the leg room like in the back?

    Very nice Dr bob

    You only need two tools in life - wd-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the wd-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

    And if you can't fix it with a hammer,you've got an electrical problem!

    Good job. Two levels up, I'd say !

    If the interior had been cream instead of tan, I'd have had a proper, proper jealous pang. Still very, very good work though

    YES MATE. Excellent choice, quite like the colour combo as well - unusual. Do a burnout

    I got in the back last night for test purposes. With the front seat all the way back it's surprisingly snug for a big car actually, my legs were squeezed and I'm a relative shortarse

    I'll grab a pic at some point.
