    Tell you what chaps let's put this to our members for feedback...

    Has anyone ever "pulled" in an S Type?

    .
    I think its more realistic to think someone had 'pulled' up to the post office to collect their pension in an S Type?

    I dont think ive ever seen anyone under about 90 driving one!

    Yes but once we have collected our pension we can afford a "lady of the night" to sit in the car to talk to us as we drive past the local petrol station where all the youngster hang out. Just to make them sick with envy.

    Perhaps if you are trying to pull an "older women" it might work?!

    Hmm, ... I'm still not sure that trying to attract a partner with expensive things bodes well for future financial well being...

    But, back to the S-Type, more women have said the S-type is much nicer looking than the XKR. Men usually have the opposite opinion. No sure if the striking Pacific blue compared to the rather plain white has something to do with it too.
    S-Type 3.0 Manual MY2001 in Pacific Blue with Cashmere Leather Sport Seats, Sunroof, Melbourne Alloys, Premium Sound plus some other stuff ... 55k miles.
    XKR 5.0 Speed Pack MY2011 in Polaris White with Ivory/Charcoal Leather, Nevis Alloys and R-Performance Interior plus some other stuff ... 17k miles.
    Hyundai Tucson 1.6T AWD MY2016 in White Sand. Basic, comfortable and surprisingly fast and competent ... 12k miles.
    FIAT Coupe MY1997 in Steel Grey with Tan Leather ... 55k miles.

    "Future financial well-being", Neil?

    If I pull a bird I like when I'm 90, I won't care about future financial well being, I'll be happily spending it all on erector drugs, hotels, wining and dining!

    What a brilliant way to go!

    I've seen an S type pulling a trailer. Does that count?

    TBH I've had a few females look and comment on my S type especially with the rather cute V8 burble.
    2001 3.0 SE Auto, Satnav, winter pack. Dark Blue, all the toys.
    2004 3.0 Sovereign Estate. Winter pack. Fixed. For Sale.
    2005 Estate X type 2.2 Sport.
    2000 V8 3.2 XJ8 LWB. "Prom" car. Lovely. Should sell this one too really...
    2005 "AllyCat", 3.0 XJ6 SE.
    2000 S type 4.0 V8. Latest toy.
    VFR800A and a VFR 800F

    Still beating cancer. Trevor 2, Cancer 0.

    Sure I took the Red pill....
