    My car

    I live in Germany and have owned 525d and X5d. I tested Audi and Lexus and almost bought A5. The Jag got it. Thank you Jag for letting me fly a bit of Britain in Germany(ok I know its not British but the Germans relate it to us)I am sick of seeing the German marques everywhere (god bless their loyalty)now when I go out and about there is a huge interest in my car and generally they like it. I find the drive fantastic and way better than anything I've driven before. The start up may get boring eventually, but watch how many copies appear. I recently completed a 600 mile autobahn trip and was not hanging around (she makes her top end), but averaged 36 mpg. One gripe is why o why did they not fit fog lights on the front airdam, where the chrome bars are. Apart from looks they are so handy when in heavy spray and poor visibility. Hopefully this will be addressed in later models. Verdict, very happy and if fuel prices drop I'll be looking at the SV8 next.

    My car

    Mine was one of the first and has already covered 12000 miles. An absolute delight to drive whether cruising on the motorway or twisting and turning on country roads. This car leaves you so fresh even after 400 miles in one day. People stop and look in admiration of the design. Great value too when you consider what it has as standard equipment compared to the BMWs and Audis. Fuel consumption is very respectable. Have I been able to find anything to criticise? It is my first diesel and I find it slow to take off at roundabouts and T junctions but once moving it's fine. Maybe I'm more of a 'petrol driver'. Problems: only one when the indicators stopped ticking recently. The dealer actually claimed that XF indicators don't tick so nothing was wrong, wasting a day off the road. The fact that they had ticked for several months was clearly irrelevant. After a lot of persuation on my part they got permission to replace the instrument cluster and it was booked in again. Now it ticks as before and I'm not the idiot they made me out to be! Jaguar - you have created an outstanding car, but dealerships remain your biggest challenge. Recommendations - go for 19inch wheels - look great but not as much road noise or as harsh riding as the 20inch. For the future - I can't imagine going back to the blandness of the competitors after experiencing this car.

    My car

    I have owned BMWs for the last 9 years and run a 530i se at the moment. I did not like the look of the new 5 series when it was first shown and now that I want to change my car I decided to test drive the Jaguar XF, an Audi A6, Mercedes E320 and BMW 530d. All the cars were very good but in the end the choice was between the Jag and the BMW. The Jag got the nod, expected delivery middle of August. The Jag was betted equiped, rode better and the stearing was just as good, some people don't like the looks but I love it, pick any car and you can argue that somthing is borrowed from another one, it's the whole package that counts.

    My car

    Simply wonderful...I have been running and Audi A6 2.7TDI for 3 years and yes it is a good car...but very boring. I actually look forward to getting in and driving the XF.

    Having covered 1100 miles the fuel consuption is not in the same league as the Audi but I suspect that is more to do with my right foot!

    What I have been suprised about is how much fresher I feel after a long motorway trip than I did in the Audi. The road noise in much better in the Jag as is the ride, which I always found fidgety in the Audi. Great drive, wonderful looks....happy customer.
