Interesting. I suggest that the aluminium boot lid is a 'test' lid. The boot lid on the car you've ordered will be made of steel ! If you change the steel boot lid to aluminium the reduction in weight will change the dynamics of the car. The cars have been manufactured to be 50/50 in weight distribution (except the XE S) to enhance handling. Because of the aluminium hype I can't believe that Jaguar would not have included an aluminium boot lid if it had been currently viable in the design.

'Steer' clear, purchase at your peril.

Don't worry I've no intentions to buy them. I did think myself that the boot lid should have been steel just like the doors.

Makes you wonder has a prototype boot lid fallen out the back door of the factory.
