    I nearly said "likes it by the pint" but that sounds downright pornographic, glad I didn't say it. Rubigo sounds like badly translated porn too (will have to adopt that as my motto then )

    Back on the car theme I went out in the car Sunday and did not put the cover back on as it was late on my return. I had forgotten how dirty these cars get just standing there. Needs a wash now. Still have not worked out what I shall do for the cars birthday, 11th October. May take it for afternoon tea at a posh local hotel..............

    Morning Frank,
    I went shopping yesterday and purchased this Previously Enjoyed XKR. Nice colour, what do you think? I haven't had a chance to have a good look at it yet but from what I have seen so far, she had been very well cared for. The spare wheel is still in its wrapper!. Ivory leather and a Birds Eye Maple dash. 4.2 this one with a nice gear lever to reset my hand on when driving plus flappy paddles. Whisper quiet 4.2 engine unite the direct injection 5 litre I had before. No kerb rash on the wheels either but they do need a good clean.
    She has only covered 32k miles so far.
    I am thinking of keeping this one and selling my silver 1999 XKR but I will wait util the spring for my final decision.

    Currently enjoying:
    2007 XKR Convert. Frost Blue, Ivory leather. 32k
    2006 S Type R. Slate Grey, Dove Grey leather. Full Burr Walnut upgrade, Rear DVD screens. 64k.
    1999 XKR Convert. Meteorite Silver with Ivory leather. 79k.
    Previously enjoyed: 1970 XL6 4.2 1974; 1982 XJS HE V12 5.3 1987 - 1990; 2000 S Type 3.0 manual 2001-2015; 1998 XK8 Convert Mar/Apr 2016. 2009 Red XK convert Nov 2016 to March 2017: 2010 All black XKR May to Oct 2017: 2009 Green XKR convert. 28k miles.Mar to July 2018

    Now that is one nice looking car. Makes it almost tempting to sell mine and get one. Very nice and its a convertible! If it drives and is in as good condition as it looks your going to enjoy it!

    Insurance.

    I keep reading in the forums and on the news that insurance premiums have gone up. However mine have consistently gone down.

    Last year my insurance premium for the Jag with guaranteed value, which incidentally has gone up by £500, was £210. Now this year my premium is £193. Fully comp. Legal cover and breakdown cover. Though I am limited to 3000 miles a year. That for me is not a problem as its not my everyday drive car. My 'everyday car' costs me £180.

    Do you guys pay a lot for your Jags insurance??

    Mine is similar to yours Frank. I can’t remember the exact amount, but it is something like that and also went down this year.

    Very Nice Stag.

    Would be tempted to keep the X100 though, still the better looking car in my opinion..

    far more Cat like..
    They said it couldn't be done, so i didn't do it
