Hello all

Post by Cuke » Sun Jul 26, 2020 11:57 am

Just joined after picking my first ever Jaguar (2016, XE R-Sport) yesterday
Upgraded from a clapped out 60 plate Astra so it’s all very new (and very nice!) but I’m sure there will be questions to follow... 😉

Welcome to the forum. Nice looking car :D

I also recently upgraded from a Vauxhall daily driver to an XE. The Jaguar is a much more complicated vehicle and the information and knowledgeable people on here provide a very useful resource.

Welcome to the forum Cuke. I came from a Mazda 6 and found the XE a totally different and much better drive. Enjoy.

Hi and welcome. I did a similar thing but from a focus there’s no going back for me

Hi , Lovely looking car.
I'm still finding about mine after having a technological shock from upgrading from a 10 year old Kia Venga .
It's all those little "I didn't know I had that!" Surprises that I keep finding.
The XE's do handle well .

For all new owners learning about their XEs here is a nice little touch.

The start button pulses at 72 beats per minute. Apparently that is the resting heartbeat of a Jaguar cat :D
