New to Jaguar

Post by Rob Wright » Tue Nov 06, 2018 9:39 pm

Howdy Folks!

Soon to be an owner of a low mileage Xe 25d Awd model. Looking forward to getting to grips with the car. I've already bought a pair of custom aluminium paddles to fit, and I'll get a decent set of winters on promptly. I'm amazed how cheap the insurance is through comparison sites, though I'll give A Flux a chance to keep my business. I'll be picking the car up in a couple of weeks and then doing 700 miles over a weekend. That should get me aquainted fairly quickly.

Enjoy. I am running in so keeping the revs low but still find the car more than meets expectations. It is quiet, sure footed, and comfortable so 700 miles will go easy.

I will give winter tyres a miss this year and use my wife's Evoque in the snow. Unfortunently winter tyres dont stop the car behind sliding into you so I will save mine for summer.

Thanks guys.

I'm a late convert to winters I admit. Fitted some last year to my Octavia and I was highly impressed. I live about 80 miles from the nearest dual carriageway and most of my driving is swift cross country with not another vehicle in sight so there's not a huge chance of being rear ended.

Hi Dan,

I've had my modified Jeep insured with you for about 10 years! I've gone with you folks again despite being significantly more expensive, mainly due to my having to swap insurances around a bit. Next renewal I'll be a lot more disciplined in getting the cost down. ;)

Regards,

Rob
