    XJ buying advice please - New member ....

    Hi Fella's

    I've just spent a couple of hours browsing this forum and would love your opinions/advice on joining the XJ club !!

    I test drove a 2012 LWB portfolio 2 weeks back (from Jaguar listers Solihull but not approved used), loved the drive (powerful and effortles) but much prefer the black leather (I've got 2 very young children!) so I've kept on looking.....

    Been to see this one, I loved the look of it (Stratus grey with black leather interior and liked the little spoiler/red brakes/grey alloys) but it stank of smoke
    The dealer is currently having it valeted, so will go and have a sniff this weekend.

    Quite like the look of this one but quite high mileage

    I currently do around 10-12k / year mainly commuting to/from Warwick (lots of country roads!)


    Any advice / suggestions greatly appreciated


    Thanks

    Simon

    The main issue with these cars was the sunshine roof "popping" noises when driven over roads with sharp bumps. This was at its peak around 2010-2012. Best to take a test drive before deciding. The "other" Jaguar forum, mainly US drivers, had a lot of threads about this issue, but have a look through this one first.
