    Hi all.

    I'm Tim, I work as an IT Support Manager in Hertfordshire where I also live.

    Current main car is an X-Type 3.0 SE in Gold (Topaz??). Also have a 1990 Honda Prelude, and had a 1991 Toyota MR2 T-Bar prior to that (excellent car - until the incident with the roundabout in the wet that totalled it the day after I ordered the X-Type...).

    Jagman - very envious of your XJS Celebration. Always wanted one but never got round to getting one. One day...

    I also keep looking at Trans Ams and such like on eBay as well...

    Hello,
    I just joined the forum. I am a Porsche Technician in the States, CT to be exact. I purchased my 3.0 Sport X-Type back in September. It is Adriatic Blue with a not-so-well-suited for mechanics sand white interior(or whatever it's called). It has a 5 speed manual gearbox and about 40K miles.

    When my girlfriend first saw the car, her expression was, "You are NOT spending enough money on me!"

    She was serious.

    My previous cars were Saab turbo, Saab turbo and Saab turbo!
    and now I love Jags...! Though I haven't had any bills yet!!!

    hi,

    I'm Ray from Hornchurch in Essex.

    I drive a 2.1 V6 and also have recently (last August) registered a Tiger Cat E1 which I built myself over a good few years - Hello Kevin are you going for Zetec or Pinto power (I've got a Pinto)? If you need any advice, drop me a line.

    Also thrash my wife's Ka between home & Luton (keeps the miles down on the Jag) where I work for a US IT company as a Systems Analyst.

    Cheers

    Hi All.

    I'm paul and and based in shrewsbury. Work in Telford for Fujitsu Services as an HP-UX systems Admin and EMC storage/SAN manager.

    I'm not officialy an xtype owner till friday when I pck up my 2003 52 plate 3.0 sport saloon.

    Currently running a Ford Focus C-Mac - an atempt to be practical which has lasted all of 5 months!! Prior to that was an Octavia vRS, A scooby RB5 WRS, a scooby Sport Special, a scooby non turbo, A vectra, an pug 305 D Turbo, and a VW Jetta all in the last 7 years.

    Looking forward to the Jag though. Hopefully here to stay for at least a year!! I get bored with cars quickly and have a deep rooted yearning for a westfield .

    Hi,

    Gary from Manchester, works in It. Recent owner of Silver 3.0 Sport in Manual. Last car was a Rover 820 Vitesse Coupe, a super car which always got attention and supprised many off the lights when a bit of fun was needed.

    Hi All,
    I've been a member for a while now and as the arrival of my X type SE 2.2 D estate on March 1st gets closer thought I'd introduce myself.
    I have an ageing Vectra Estate which is presently resting in my garage at home waiting on its feline replacement.

    My occupation is ships captain employed in the offshore industry - I'm presently working out in the Gulf of Mexico 'driving' an Ulstein 755L which for the uninitiated is the class of vessel. I work for 6 weeks then get 6 weeks off - its a long commute but the 6 weeks off bit is good.

    I get back in the UK just before the end of February and have a buyer for the Vectra so will be getting started on running in the jag ASAP.

    I do a lot of fishing when I'm home hence the need for an estate.
