    As subject just thought I would post as I am quite excited as it's here 3 months early /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

    I've also got to go down to Stansted to meet one of our field staff. So I am going to get a good 7 hour drive in it to get used to it.

    I am sure I'll post some pics tomorrow LOL

    It's a Jaguar X Type 2.0 Diesel Sport (I know Diesel, but I've got to think of tax)

    Oh yeah I've had the sports seats put in (Leather + Alcantara), Carbon Fibre dash and Sports suspension + wheels.

    It's this colour:

    I had a Jaguar X-Type as a courtesy car while I was getting a new bumper. It ain't all that great mate... I had the 2.5 petrol version. I really hope for your sake the 2.0 diesel is better than the 2.5 petrol.

    To be honest, the interior looked like a Ford Mondeo... I expected more for a Jag.

    Funny that, seeing as it is a Ford Mondeo in a different shell.
