    Scratched the itch - My XKR thread.

    Saw this car advertised last Friday, went to see, test drove and bought it on Saturday and finally brought home today.
    The spec is phenomenal and with 16000mls on the clock I couldn’t pass it by.
    More photos will be forthcoming as the titivation begins but here she is at home.Click image for larger version.

    Congrats on your new catch.
    Looks like a stunning example you’ve got there.

    Did you trade in your old car?
    When you buy a Jag, you pay for the engine.

    Thanks and yes, the old one went as part of the deal.

    My old one went with 27000 mls on the clock and still drove like a new car but this XKR is in a different league altogether.
    The colour of Polaris White is quite apt as it flies like a rocket.

    Many thanks Mark. I have never been a fan of black wheels, however, on this car it just looks right. To say I’m really pleased would be a complete understatement.

    Let this be a word of caution.

    The Itch


    A terrible affliction.

    Thankfully its less virulent strain is cured by buying a V8 and for most this will be the end of their scratching.

    But Jimbo had one I hear you say,

    He did indeed, but alas his Itch was the more aggressive strain, only cured completely by......

    A Supercharged V8

    So, if you have a normally aspirated V8 and are not currently scratching, keep it that way by not test driving a supercharged one.

    Do you really want to run the risk?



    Sincere apologies Jim for being the perpetrator of your relapse



    As I have no wish to have others suffer, my car is no longer available for test drives to those already owning a V8

    Thanks Rich. The skin has been red raw but is now healing wonderfully at the medication of driving at warp speed.
