It's looking good Anthony.

What's the story on the X-Type?

Cheers Ray, I smashed up our Honda and fancied a change. Went from Jazz to Jag. From 1.4 manual to 3.0 Auto. From front wheel drive to 4 wheel drive. From 84bhp to 243. From 41mpg to 26mpg :mrgreen: but I only do 5,000 miles per year in it so am I bothered?!
Despite its age, it's loaded with features as it's an SE model (cruise, heated&electric leather, nav, full size alloy spare etc) and has only covered 68K miles.

I love it.

Looks good mate. I like that colour and that it isn’t a sport. Sports look too plastics. The chrome gives it it’s classy looks.

Cheers mate. It's a bit of an old man's car in a sense, but it's lovely to drive. I agree the Sport can look a bit plasticky with it's colour-coded bumper inserts and I've not been a fan of the facelift grille as it looked like Jag were trying to squeeze a few more years out of a dated design.
All in all, it I find it aesthetically pleasant. It doesn't start a fire in me like the Saab does, but it's a lovely way to travel to and from work and it has the power to perform when it has to.

Part of me is very tempted to swap out the rear boxes for a pair of Sportex rear mufflers but at the same time, I feel like this car should remain stock, and unfettled.
