There is something very special about the S-type Jaguars. I see the BMW 5-Series as "Teutonic" and cold, while the S-type Jaguar is more of a well-dressed, confident, relaxed, Brit that is quintessentially dignified. A "gent" in a tweed jacket, oxford-cloth shirt, and a light-brown ascot. Which would you rather ride with... "Herman the German" or "Sir Cedric" with a scent that's reminiscent of "leather and citrus"?Very cool! I have the 2003 s type and my wife will never sell it. Shes been offered 4 times what we paid for it and she said no way. Great car.
