If only we could maintain such discipline and responsibility, India would have achieved great heights.

And that is a beautiful car.I am also hoping like noopster, that my son will provide me with such delights! He has already set his eyes on Ferrari!
Thank you. Those are my sentiments also. If only we can achieve the road etiquettes of the British and also the sense of maintaining and protecting their environment and greenry, India will become a different India altogether. But sadly very sadly I do not see any chances of it happening at least in our life time. Rather we are going from bad to worse.

Have faith in God, I am sure that your son will achieve even greater heights.

Default Re: My trip of U.K., in our Jaguar XF

""I was behind a smaller car and wanted to overtake. The road was two lane with lots of curves and some oncoming traffic also. We might have been doing around 50 mph and I pressed the accelerator hard, not floored it. For the first time it dropped a gear or two, engine note rose to a growl, it gathered pace like a jet fighter taking off and within few seconds I was far ahead of the smaller car. Back in my lane I eased off and could not believe what I had experienced. The performance was without any drama, no screaming engine, no body swaying, no jerks, simply a breath taking acceleration with a lightly growling engine which was back to purring in few seconds. This was truly an example of Pace with Grace. This car suits its name 'Jaguar' which is a lean & mean and agile animal like our Cheetah which can gather speed or change direction in a jiffy.""


Loved this part! And such class while describing the pace. And hope there are no more scratches (keeping the finger crossed). Amazing write up.

Thanks shankar.

The qualities of U.K., mentioned by you are my sentiments also which I used to mention frequently in U.K. Sadly we are adopting their vices only at a very fast pace, but none of their qualities.

I have plenty of more photos of our later drive to Scotland which are even better. Will try to post those in next week.

Yes do visit U.K., and take a road trip to Scotland and Wales. The scenery there is much better than England.

Thanks Acclero.

We got that scratch repaired and hopefully there are no more scratches. I am in India now and Siddharth has told me that the car is doing good and the milage has improved to 36 MPG., which is 12.75 kmpl overall.

Hows that milage for such a heavy car of 1820 kg which is always driven hard. If driven sanely, I am sure it can improve upto 14 kmpl.

Very apt description of XF. Jaguar should use your line in their advertisements.

Sir,

Any recent trips of English countryside or Europe? Please post some fresh pics of the Wild Cat in its natural habitat. I am a sucker for pics taken in modern setup too, so any snaps of the Business District around London would be highly appreciated.

Sorry Sankalp, could not post earlier. I have come back to U.K., and will now start posting pictures of Scotland and Wales. I am posting from my iPad for the first time and let us see how it goes.

Oh sorry, nearly all pictures are bigger than 1 MB size, so will reduce them first and then will post them. Please bear with me for for 1-2 days.
