    Great to see Chris, but what have you sacrificed to SWMBO to get it?

    I sincerely hope that you'll realise the error of your ways and clean this one.

    It ain't as if you can't, Captains Rounds was more detailed, but then again perhaps you torpedo jockeys didn't even get them.

    At least I don’t have to bother sorting that rear window surround that was flapping about on your old XJ! You’ll have to bring your new motor round to have a look at it.

    What exactly have you bought?

    This is true. I can also stop trying to figure out how to get rid of the smell of year-old rotting cream from the boot! I also now have a 2010 model year touch screen to sell, as well as a set of SWB Oyster/ Ivory mats!

    I am now the proud owner of a 2017 Ultimate Black (or Santorini Black, the spec sheet isn't clear) XJ Autobiography, with Ivory interior.

    It is the most extravagant car in the world. It is 4.73 miles long, and has enough room in the back for a rugby team. The TVs are bigger than the one in my front room. There are more blinds than there are windows, and to really irritate the Laird it has illuminated tread plates (although it doesn't have a bottled spoiler or gaudy brake thingies).

    I haven't really had a chance to do anything other than park it on the drive, but I will be round to you to show it off at the first available opportunity!

    She hasn't told me yet. But it will doubtless be both expensive and painful.

    Hey Chris, very nice mate, very nice and yes, Santorini will cover the exterior paintwork I'm sure.

    I might have known you'd throw the "illuminated treadplates" at me as I don't have them, yet lol, but wasn't expecting it first post, right between the eyes lol

    You won't have "bottled" anything but I presume you mean the bootlid spoiler lol, and as for Gaudy" brakes, well, each to their own and all that, better than the red wheels you seem to prefer.

    You'll have lots of fun learning about the new toys / updates etc, she's a beauty.

    As for your question in another post about AdBlue?

    You can check various ways, as simple as checking your remote premium app, for example at the moment mine says 2361.2 miles until required.

    I have been doing a lot of small stop / start around town journeys of late, the off 200 - 300 mile jaunt thrown in, nothing too big for a wee while now. For me it can be maybe 4-5 months or so before needing topped up.

    Enjoy
