Love Jags, but the front end of this car is a bit hard to digest. Still once you are inside, you dont have to look at it.

You are one lucky king, krazy.

Hard to digest due to the little accident? Haha good one with the krazyking.

Cruise control, temperature control, distance from the car ahead etc etc, I dont know what else can be. Would be interested in seeing the technology stuff this car has.

Regarding the cruise control, none of the S-Type models have it from my knowledge. And no I don't think there is a temperature control, there might be but I'm not sure of it. But there are rear parking sensors, audio controls mounted on the steering, power windows, sun-roof, etc. The Jag isn't exactly new, we've owned it for a couple of years now.

What I didn't mention is the cost to maintain this beauty.

I usually take the Jag to the service centre once or twice a year and in the end I usually get a bill of $25000-$30000, which is RS.150,000-200,000.

The cost is definitely huge and not to everyones pocket. It is indeed tough to maintain this car. I remember an ad of Chevrolet where an elephant is fed and maintained at home and it takes its toll on the owner to maintain the elephant.

Well if you see the firey logo on Jaguar, everything is worth for it. (even the *** cost)

By the way, cool pics dude. U shaped gear changes are unique.

I used to have a Jaguar XJ6 Sports. Absolutely loved it. Can understand your feeling.

@Krazyking, the second set of pictures have brought character/charisma to the car..err.Jaguar. Earlier I was going to post that it bears an uncanny resemblence to a Hyundai Sonata. And 260 on the dial, thats a wow. Whats the top speed you done on this baby.
One suggestion, get that air freshner container off the dash. Please. Its spoiling the rich feel interiors.

And that's such a deal-breaker isn't it?

Is that a typo? Find it difficult to believe....in ANY car.

But that's besides the point. It's a mixed feeling for me, because I've always hated Jaguar interiors (they're just not to my taste that's all, a matter of personal opinion) but the exterior look of this car I'm a big fan of. The butch stance coupled with overall proportions combine to give it a sporty look hard to find in most sedans of it's time. And the colour, my favourite on this car. I'm sure you're enjoying this car thoroughly and the ownership must be a rewarding, if expensive, experience.

One last thing. The pic of the leaping cat on the bonnet is just WOW

Jaguar should now seriously think of reintroducing a V12. A ride in the Series 3 XJ12 was one of my most memorable motoring events. It made me a big Jaguar fan.
