Default Jaguar S-Type - Amazing

Hi Guys,

I've been wanting to write an ownership for a while, but haven't quite got the time and chance to do so. I don't actually have the time now either, but I've managed to force my self.

Well we bought the Jaguar in 2004. She has been my first car, and that all to a super car. She's an amazing drive and spins heads everywhere she goes.

Below I've uploaded some photos. More to come later when I get the time.

from outside it looks stunning.

from inside seems to be having less space then expected.

Any ways, enjoy the super car.

I don't think I was quite asking for your opinion. And if you'd probably open up your eyes, instead of criticizing you'd probably see that there are audio controls on the steering.

Thanks. Yah it's not very spacious in the front, but it's quite spacious in the back, 4 people can comfortably sit in the back.

It's a Jag! Who cares how bad the car is? It's a Jaguar! You owned a Jaguar in your lifetime. One thing crossed off your bucket list!

Krazyking --- You are one very lucky person to have owned and lived with a Jag. Not many Indians can claim to have done that in their lifetime.

Do post detailed reports of your ownership experience.

Minus the quirky front end, it is one hell of a car. Do write up about your ownership experiences.

Thanks mate. Yeah the car will be going for servicing soon, so I'll be getting that touched up.

Yup. The front plates have to be white and rear yellow.

Cheers mate. I know I'm really fortunate to have owned a Jag, and I hope to own more exotics in the future. Will write a ownership as soon as I get some time on my hands.

Never been too keen on the looks and i've always thought the interiors were very old fashioned (which doesnt mean they arent plush), but on the motorway the car is just fabulous. Had driven the 3 Litre quite alot, and i wouldnt say it was a head turner, but the car does have a personality and a charm of its own.

O.T - I can see your not looking for opinions, but i presume thats what forums are for?

Nice. I have always found the Jag to have a very understated appeal, not brash in your face kind of looks but very sophisticated. Congrats on owning a fantastic car bro.
