Good Evening to all here.

Such a wonderful forum for everything one could ever find out about their Jaguar. Must admit that trawling through these last few days has been quite an enlightening experience. Having run a Suzuki Baleno Estate from new (manual) these last 13 years (don't even ask!) having the Jaguar since last August has put my enjoyment back into driving. A two hour hold up on the M3 then sciatica concentrated the mind into having an automatic. I love it! So far Marshalls of Ipswich have been great at solving the "snag" list; supposedly normal, yet cannot fault them with their customer care. As I won't be returning to Ipswich in the near future i have booked her into Poole for a service, as the "service required" has come up on the dash. Will let you know how they have fared.

Welcome! Can you give us any clues as to which Jaguar has put the enjoyment back into your life? You've gone into great detail about the one you've got rid of! ;)
Morning SCM and thank you for the welcome. She's an X-type 2.2D SE estate in metallic shadow grey. Charcoal leather interior, 6CD auto change and an absolute dream to drive. My bro-in-law who's had Jaguars for over 30 years and did the test drive for me did mention "challenges from other drivers"; so true ! Slowly getting used to the extra power under the bonnet, though can't reverse (even with the girly bleepers) !
Hi. Welcome to the forum. I hope you continue to enjoy the car for many years to come. :)
Thank you Jerry :D, certainly looking forward to that. She's an October 2009 model with lovely touchscreen technology. Bluetooth is a dream, no more adaptors and wires.
