Oh! I don't know... It would involve some borrowing; not a vast sum. As a teacher I get automatic pay rises for the first 6 years of working. Then there is a chance of a Head of House role; and extra 25-30%.

The XF is quick, all paid for and looks great.

The XJ is another level of comfort, quicker and about 6 inches longer.....

Both are rare.

A bit shouty? Fab car - extra mid range grunt makes big difference. Slightly firmer ride and the G/box feels smoother! Decisions decisions....

Think the XJ is a little over the top for an Art teacher. Too big for the school playground - they already think I 'm a drug dealer!

The SV8 is fantastic. The XFR seems to "lock" the gear quicker - less "elastic band feeling". The paint condition looks much better than mine and the wheels are immaculate. I shall contact the servicing Jag dealer tomorrow to see what other work it has had.


Also about 2mpg more! There are a couple of things I would need to do to sort the above car; well known XF issues. I need to polish out a paint repair - easy enough; shall chat to a mate of mine on that one.

It had an MOT 6 weeks ago with no advisories. All in all - worth the money. Best thing is 1 owner from new!

BUT is it worth the cost of upgrade?

You're starting to sound like me - hehe

It's quite a horrible place to be when you are very happy with your car, but just looking to change for a few small reasons ..

Much easier to change cars when you hate your current one ...

Hardly! Especially in that colour.

The 'flagship' model will probably hold its value a bit better?

Right - money in place.

Just a final decision to be made.
