    2 years with my 5 litre XKR but I had a 4.2 litre XKR for 5 years before that and that was also black so a lot of people don't realise that I have changed the car!
    Current Jag: 2010 5.0 XKR (XKR-S X-Pipe, smaller S/C pulley and Tune ~650bhp - 11.567@123.19, max v=126.04!)

    Previous Jags: 2007 4.2 XKR | 2004 4.2 XJ8 | 1998 4.0 XJR | 1996 6.0 XJ12 | 1989 5.3 XJ-S | 1983 5.3 XJ-S | 1980 5.3 XJ-S

    I'm in my 16th year of Jaguar ownership, 12th of XK ownership.

    Started with an X-Type Indianapolis in 2003, then an XKR 4.2 (X100) in 2007, an XKR 5.0 (X150) in 2012 and I bought my current car, an XKR-S earlier this year.

    I'm planning to hang on to this one as long as possible and practical, as there's only me and the wife,

    Still raises a smile every time I get into it and it's a daily driver too!
