Ooh - nice

I went to see a potential client tonight with a Jaguar XF 3.0 V6 .... I try not to talk cars at work, but they were raving and raving how comfortable it is ....

Tempting indeed, although an E60 M5 can't be that far off price-wise? Hard to ignore that 5.0 V10. Wink

Huge has a dangerous hatred of German cars or indeed people*

Rather too shouty for me. I'm not 100% sure about the XFR with the bonnet vents to be honest. The XFR is better (I understand) on the road - you can drive it carefully or like a loon. But then on reflection my SV8 is in a great colour (black) and understated.... there is a difference in performance (3 seconds to 100mph), but far less than 3.0D - 4.2 Petrol S/C.....


Mmmm - It's all paid for and got through the MOT yesterday with no advisories. I'm machine polishing it next week (half term!)..... think I might stick for the time being....

It's still a fine, fine car Huge!

I think Huge has gone a bit power crazy!

Lets see....Aventime...What was that...204bhp? Or 240? Was it the 3.0V6? 204bhp i think...ish? 210?

Then the...9-3 ~ 252bhp (then did you remap it?)

Then the 9-5...296bhp

Now the SV8...410bhp

And now contemplating a ~ 500bhp uber-uber saloon.

Sir, I salute you!

Are you really the only 'true petrolhead' amongst us?

Hugh - good work, Fella.

I test drove a new S3 today - very disappointed - in very aspect apart from a tiny bit (not as much as you'd think) power .... the BM is head and shoulders over the S3 ...

I also drove the 911 again .... this time next year, Rodney .... nothing else comes close, and that's why I'm having trouble changing the BM .... but I reckon that's the answer - no more compromising- just tells myself to relax for a little bit longer, and get what I've always wanted ... the stupid thing is the 911 is probably one of the cheapest cars to own, as it won't depreciate from here on in.

Careful mate ....

It might look like the dream - but the lifelong PCP payments are crippling, not only that ... as soon as you live with it, it's constantly got a flat tyre, or some other reason you can't drive it today ....

Thankfully there are local car clubs where you only pay per drive .... you know where you are that way.

Well, I'm talking numbers with the seller of the XJ Supersport. At the right price differential I may go for it.....

We shall see. My car is worth (according to various valuation sites) £8.5k less than the XJ. Taking the XJ trade in figure into account, I reckon he has a shade under £4000 profit in it. Now a car is only worth what someone is willing to pay, and I know he took it in as a PX, but what shall I offer?

Most of his cars are much more expensive than the XJ, and he has some very good reviews (50+). The car would have a 6 month warranty - more by negotiation.....

So, do I have a chat with the wife?! She could sit in the back watching TV!

Crix, if you ever decide to have a blow out, and have a weekend away, Spa is the way forward.

Epic circuit, brilliant road trip there and back,  24 hours of racing means you can jump in and out of the racing as much as you want, and the scenery is amazing ....

Given the choice of this, or F1 - I'd take the Spa24 hour every time.
