German XE S - and my first Jag

Post by colonie » Tue Oct 09, 2018 6:11 pm

Hey everyone.

Yesterday I finally got my XE. And it's just amazing. Coming from a VW Scirocco R I'm impressed by the overall quality of this car.
So the past two days I drove some hours and made some quick pictures an hour ago.

I already got some plans for the XE. ;)
- wrapping the outer mirrors, the roof, the front frame and the fake side air vents in black to match the other black parts (appointment for 19.10.)
- removing the "XE", "S", "Jaguar" letters and the jaguar on the back and just installing a black jaguar
- winter tires on the 19" venom and next year summer tires on the 20" propeller
- remove the additional 12v socket of the smoke package, somehow
- some other small adjustments ;)

I will keep you postet.

Yeah I like the white with the black accents. But I got an idea for a full wrap of the white in my head that won't disappear ;)

I like this location, it's right next to a restaurant close to my home.

Looks like. But I'm not too worried about that, I feel fine driving something you don't see regularly, like a Golf ;)

Thanks, you bet I do :D Everything about this car feels amazing. Well, expect for the automatic park assist, that's terrible.

Alright, progress is being made:
- roof, mirrors, frame and side air vents will be black next week
- color for the Jaguar badge on the back is on it's way to me
- front carbon fibre splitter is ordered

Can't wait to provide some pictures ;)
