    How are you getting on with your XE?

    The car is doing OK, and I'm getting close to 12k miles having taken it over at 10.2k miles. Car will be 2 years old on 5th May, and I have 15 months of the original warranty to run, then a year of the Jaguar Approved warranty. Keeping the ignition key in your pocket instead of inserting it into the ignition slot does take some getting used to. Only thing I miss is the sublime interior of the XJ, and the silky V6. The 4-cylinder Ingenium has enough performance for me, but is a bit of a growler. My first diesel EVER !

    Car came with the tyre blow-up kit so I went on the internet and now have a virtually new space-saver spare and jack/wheelbrace holder. HOwever now the boot floor doesnt fit, so I've ordered the correct one from the local main agent. £185 ! They seem a pretty good dealership, and I know their spares guy quite well. My old XJ is now back on the road, sold via a small dealer in Derby.
