Evening All,
Have been meaning to say hello since getting my 2016 MY 180 Portfolio at the beginning of February, but the weather has been generally awful here in Dundee and pics would have been very poor. Thoroughly enjoying the car which had only done 25.6K when I got it and is in excellent condition with everything that I have found so far working as it should - hat-tip to the previous owner and Marshalls of Ipswich. Today's sunshine inspired some graft - a thorough wash, decontamination, DA polish with Meguiars Ultimate and finish with Auto Smart Max. Still a lot of detailing to do, but quite pleased with the result so far. Amazing how a shiny Jag in the drive cheers you up amid the general gloom these days!
Keep well folks, Andrew

Welcome aboard!

The weather up there looks much better than it has been here for the last couple of days of drizzle....

Enjoy your Jag :D
