I'm very excited about getting my XE albeit it's a long way off (currently late Oct). I read all the posts on this forum with interest but of late with a growing sense of sadness! I completely agree that poorly communicated delays, panel gaps, dealer service, USB sockets, no folding rear seats etc are genuine and understandable grips but the general consensus from those lucky few who have taken delivery is that the car is brilliant and worth the wait. Having been on other forums waiting for other new cars to be delivered to me, none of these issues are exclusive to Jaguar, they are just a frustrating fact of life. This is just an observation of course and not a slight on anyone posting issues but I now get a little "fizz" when the post topic is a positive one!! I'll now run for cover and wait t be shot down.
