Looks Amazing, really like the black colour on the XE
If you mean the paint, you'd hate it. I will never buy a black car again because although it looks awesome for the first five seconds after washing it, it looks dirty from then on.

Been there, done that...

I eventually gave up on cleaning the black motor i had.

Mind you, where I live now the most useful car colour would be seagull dropping grey - I think I must live under the seagull equivalent of the M54 :evil:
Waiting to retire, so I can buy a Portfolio 250, with all the toys I can sneak past SWMBO :lol:

hi

Yes, dark colours are a pain in the *rse, I have had lots of different colours and never again dark greens or blacks.

my glacier white XE doesn't show up the dust too bad, but highlights the mud thrown up onto the sills.

The colours that I think look cleaner longer are silvers and light grey metallics

Don't know any manufacturer that does a mud/dust colour paint

Correct, hence most of the Rental companies in the Med area have their fleets in the above colours.
Hot dry dusty Spanish weather, the above colours don't show up the muck and can be cleaned with a quick wash and a quick turn around for the next hire. Also these colours allow panel damage to be easily observed on a quick inspection.

What springs did you use to lower your jag? Looks awesome btw.
Its not lowered at all. Unfortunately (yes really) i got electronic dampers, therefore the coils from H&R wont fit. Talked to some Tuner shops but none would touch it, as they cant deactivate the dampers. It would consistently cause an Error - according to them.

They really suit the car. I'm toying with upgrading mine, just trying to find a good deal on a secondhand set.
after two years of searching, I found my Propellerwheels on ebay , shipping to Belgium was fairly expensive but it was not a problem by the seller : uk_goldeneyes

Spring wise, it says ‘adaptive dynamics’ . Like most systems on JLR cars, this one is designed integral to the car if fitted. Other mainstream manufacturers design their cars in the ‘cafe racer’ style , whereby you can add and subtract major items at any time, at huge profit to them, for the tiniest insignificant performance benefits. Adaptive dynamics has huge benefits with 19” and 20” wheels .
