It is all a bit Marmite but I had this put on my XKR in 2017. But only because I was driving to the Spa 24 Hour race to support the Emil Frey Jaguar team. It was a custom graphic but all came off within 6 months. It did attract quite a lot of attention.

If you are going to do it I would say big and bold is better than small and wimpy. I have also included a picture of the Emil Frey X150 Jaguar if you want to see how they did it on the X150 GT3 car.

I know what's wrong, and if I could find it, I'd fix it.

If you have to, it would look better across both doors than across the rear wheel.

Position is everything and you have to be really careful. Back in 2008 I added the first leaper to my XK. It seemed like a good idea at the time. Drove the car back home from the graphics company, took a photograph and pealed it off.

On I think the position is pretty much where I want it, like the cat the power comes from the rear...

Those in the know will accuse it of being a Project 8 wannabe.
Personally, I think it looks a bit naff even on the project 8.

I almost agree with PhilB :o

It works on the Project 8, with all the other dimension-compensating go-faster bits :lol:

But on anything else, it looks a bit too boyracerish to me, and I thought the XE was supposed to be a bit more subtle :?:

But it is your Jag, and if you like it, go for it!

It'd be a boring world if we all liked exactly the same, wouldn't it?
