Hi, Ruben van Aerde!
I sure would recommend you to buy the Jaguar XE. When it comes to engine, Jaguar offers the choice of either a 2.0 litre four cylindre petrol engine or a supercharged 3.0 litre V6. If you prefer diesel, that's going to be available as well. It's well equipped with both clever technology and power. The 2020 Jaguar XE will have RWD or AWD for an additional cost of about 2 000 $ (ca. 1580 £). Regarding transmission, the 2020 XE is rumoured to feature Jaguar's "SportShift" shift knob (and paddles) which is auspicious. The previously featured rotary gear selector wasn't brilliant. One drawback is that the boot space is slightly inadequate, which isn't really too surprising for a saloon. Please have in mind though, that I have not yet driven this car myself, but from what I've heard from mates and acquaintances the XE is an excellent car. If you are having a hard time choosing, I would advise you to test drive an existent XE (if you haven't already).
It will hopefully give you an insight into the performance and general feeling of the car.
If your friends or relatives happen to be petrolheads, discuss it with them. Most likely they will have some useful advice to offer. Don't forget to watch some reviews on YouTube. I wish you the best of luck, and I would be overjoyed to hear what you choose!😃
Hi, Ron Tuohy!
Ever since I laid eyes on one of these I've loved them. I'm interested in buying a manual S-Type (from 2002 and later). Unfortunately there isn't a V8 option for the manuals. Since you seen to have found a specimen in excellent condition I wonder if you have any good advice about what to look out for when buying a second hand S-Type regarding corrosion, common faults etc.
I would truly appreciate your advice.
And please convey my regards to that stunning car of yours!
SERVICE TIME I took my F type R for its service today. A strange experience. When we arrived we had to wait at the service bay for our allotted time then the door opened for us to drive in. Once in we had to go to a desk sanitise the key and put it in a bag before going to the service desk to had it over. When signing the service form you used a pen and put it in a bin to be sanitised. Then leaving the dealership you walked round the showroom on the one way system.
