Good post. All you say is true, but what it means is that when/if I tire of XKs, my next car will probably be a Mercedes. The interiors, like all other cars now, are 'black plastic with bits of old cooker hood' but at least the outsides look nice. There is no current Jaguar I want to buy, and that's sad as I've had five Jaguars and am basically a Jaguar person. They used to be distinctive and classy, now they're not. So I'll have to emigrate.

Next time you're driving, look at the car in front, then imagine the badge is missing. Can you tell what it is? Nope.
