First time Jag owner!

Post by jonnwhite » Tue Jun 25, 2019 11:07 pm

Hey All,

Just wanted to introduce myself as i shall be picking up my very own Jag (16 Plate XE R-Sport 2.0 180 Auto)! I've waited almost 2 years for this purchase and cannot wait to collect it on Sunday.

My father always wanted an XE since their release, however he passed away a little over 18 months ago, this purchase is very heavily geared on his recommendation and a kind of honoury purchase. Being only 23 i thought i never would of been able to get one, but got the deposit, found a fantastic deal, VT'd my old car and here we are.

You all seem very welcoming and i shall post some photos on delivery :D

Many thanks all

Jon

Hi-congratulations! I have had my XE since February and love it. 66 plate R Sport 250. No problems at all apart from not realising how low the front bumper is but that's another story!
Happy motoring

Welcome aboard!

My Pa is a Jag man with a X type, one of the reasons I went for the Xe.

Welcome !

I really like the sound of bronze. I always fancied an Audi in what they call Ipanema Brown. If I were to have the XE 'wrapped' if would be in this colour...

Edit : have just googled XE bronze. It isn't like the above but is really lovely. Like a warm grey. Very unusual and very nice indeed !!

I'll post some photos once i've got it! The proper colour is called - QUARTZITE/KAIKOURA STONE :D

I wasn't sure on the colour but it kept growing on me so i decided to take the plunge!
