Hi to you all.
new member here: I'm Mark, from Holland.
just picked up my 'new' X-Type last week.
it's a black 3.0 Executive Automatic with slightly less than ~65k miles / ~105k kilometers on it.
Acquired it from the second owner which had it for 2 years.
it has a full service history and the second owner also gave me all the brochures/option lists the first owner had saved.
the car is black (ebony) and has beige leather interior (sand) with the brown wood.
almost all the goodies you can think of (Auto Clear View, Business, Convenience, Winter Xenon Packages. Nav-Phone-CDChanger, elec-roof, sensors (light,park,rain))
Strange thing is... it does not have heated seats / 10 speakers .... ....
knew that when I bought it..
Well so far it is my first Jaguar and I really like it.. not a single car has given me such a big smile on my face every time I drive it.
The thing I don't like is the wheels/rims 16' . But that's something I didn't want to leave the car for with the previous owner. hoping to change these for a nice pair of 17' perhaps 18'.
So far I've been reading daily on this forum to get familiar with my new black jag..
Hoping to contribute soon!
4 speaker setup is bugging me. no doubt about it that I want to exchange the indash nav-phone-climate for something aftermarket.
So I've been reading about the premium sound setup.
I can not, for one, believe that the magic for this 'happens in the extra sub-amp'.
By reading the electric schematics I can only see that the indash unit is tricked to believe there's this premium-amp connected. then enables a lot of extra options.
From what I see now (but I have to further investigate, (car)electronics are a long time hobby of mine but not a profession) it might be possible to 'trick' the indash unit, believing there's this premium amp connected and enables the extra options.
Surely, the premium amp gets the signal for the subs from the speaker-outs from the indash unit. so if enabled, the extra sub-woofer setting on the indash unit would only set the spectrum below eg.: 85 Hz
Anyhow.... investigation needed if I get wiser, I'll open up a different topic for this in the appropiate section.
things to do.
- Sound: (need sub and tweeters... need more 'balls' in the sound, amps, filters, line-converters, already acquired)
- Wheels: (nice pair of 17' perhaps 18', keep the 16' for winter tires)
- ACM: (need USB/mp3 input. also AUX-in also would be nice for DVB-T reception, which brings the benefit of digital-FM radio.)
Nice to meet you, hopefully I'm going to be a long time forum-reader and proud Jaguar owner.
