Hi everyone

Post by Mrcrimps » Thu Apr 02, 2020 9:30 pm

Im a new member to the site and Im thinking of taking the plunge and switching my BMW 325ci for a XE Sport Black Pack. I have fancied a XE for years but have only now plucked up the courage to switch. Anybody have any advice for me? It would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks Mr Crimps

Hi there, welcome.

Do you have an idea of what engine you want? Petrol or diesel? Power output, rwd or awd?

Hello there, as Rob asks, what would be your ideal spec? Most Jags are very well appointed as standard.

Hi I have black on black. It looks great when clean. Roll on the better weather. I have the 2 litre petrol 200ps and it’s fast enough for me. 👍

Nice choice and the 180 engine is quite fast 0-60 mph with loads of torque. Now someone may put me right here but when I got mine (2015) the stated 0-60 was 7.3 secs then I saw it at 7.5 secs After the Adblue dosing altered and now the latest is shown as 7.8 secs. after WLTM changes
Same wheels as mine and quite a few of your spec items as well.

Hi All

As you know just bought, but not collected yet, my first Jag. Its an XE R-Sport 180ps with loads of extras. I've just been trawling the intranet trying to find out how much it will cost me to tax it. I thought it would be around the £140 mark but the only site I could find that I could put the registration is showing it as over £400!!!!!!!! It was registered in May 2017, please don't tell me this could be true ?????

Sadly, if the list price - not what it originally sold for, was over 40k, then as a May 2017 reg it would be liable for the governments "Extra toys tax" :o

If the car was over £40k new, including extras, then the tax will be an extra £320 for the first 5 years. Not what you wanted to hear!

If it's the CD cars registered on the 16th, then yes it does have some expensive options that'll take it over the £40k threshold.
