I too have joined the dark side after 11 years of S Type owner ship I've got a 2013 SL350 I love the older model Jaguar cars and before I got the SL I looked at XK8's and the later XK's the former being problematic with rust and the latter I still had doubts about it and diff problems. I got very close to buying a XJS Japanese import till I found out that the particular one I was looking at had inboard rear brakes. XJ 300/308's are great cars but unfortunately will not go in my garage The newer ones XF/XE and SUV's to me are Jaguar by name only i.e. no character. So there we have it. I will still attend Jaguar events in the summer (Hopefully) and classic car shows and you'l find me round the Jag stands admiring proper Jag's and also stay on this forum which I think is great.
