Re: R Sport model

Having watched quite a few reviews of the XE R Sport prior to and after purchase do most reviewers quote "avoid the R Sport" because of the rough ride and harsh suspension. Having replaced my previous car, 2013 Focus ST, I find the suspension more than comfortable and handling to be predictable, so...

Re: Car Cleaning Help!

If you're willing to put some of your own labor into it, Zaino polish will significantly reduce the swirls - it just requires multiple coats and a lot of hand buffing unless you have a power buffer.

Having owned many black cars in the past, this is a must own product in my supply kit.

Re: XE delivered, but with some minor annoyances

Intermittent issues with the Iphone over BT. I drop connection randomly and then have to reconnect the phone sometimes. Browsing over BT is not there for me either, only via USB cable, so that's a serious oversight.

Sensors have been great for me, they come on when I press the button.

Re: XE R-Sport 35t, Ultimate Black, Black Venoms after Waxin

Finally! Car looks great - love the mirror effect of the v7. I use a similar sealant product from Zaino - similar results.

Black on black never goes out of style - congrats on the new ride! Lets hear some driving impressions now...

Re: New to Jaguar ownership? Would you do it again?

Only 1 month in - first time owner, and I would most definitely do it again. Is the car perfect? Absolutely not - but its closer to perfection than any other BMW, Mercedes, Lexus, and Acura I've ever owned (yes have owned all of those at one time). Like others in this thread, my priority is not the ...
