    getting in and out of 1997 XK8

    I am a new XK8 owner with knee replacements, is there a trick to getting in and out of these cars?

    Welcome to the forum sir. this bit is for ‘how to use the forum’, rather than ‘how to use my car’; there is a specialist bit for X100 questions (https://www.jaguarforum.com/forumdisplay.php?f=30) I’m sure that they will welcome you there with open arms. Having said that, until you can get there:

    Park where you can fully open the doors. Sit and swivel. Until you get the hang of it, it is a long way down. I personally put my left leg in and then sit, but both my knees still work.

    Don't, repeat don’t, put your weight on the door.
