Let's just hope it doesn't explode in your face - lol.

The SV8 is a great (and fairly fast car) - I will miss it. Though not today, getting into it after work - phew!!!!

I changed quickly because I think (and hope) the right car has come up - 86k miles and just 1 owner. The wheels (and the rest of the car) are immaculate and the price is good. There are a couple of things I need to sort, but happy. Really didn't expect it to come up so quickly - fingers crossed!

Nice drive back from South Wales tomorrow eve!

So what did you buy, the XF-R? Good choice over the XJ I feel!

Yes there is some sort of power war going on. Now what can I do to join it?!

Well, I collected it this evening. It's really rather good. Blips to 2000 revs when you start it too.....

Feels much heavier and firmer - did about 3 mpg more than the SV8 on the way home. It's paying for itself!!!

Some pics from yesterday - taken with a 400mm lens from about 300 metres! I was photographing a cricket match at the same time!

Well I popped down to my local Jaguar specialist this afternoon. It needs an oil change in the next month or so and there is a slight knocking noise on startup - this is the bearing on the supercharger snout. Should be ok for the time being, but will need sorting at some point.

I'm getting the tyres checked at a Jag dealership as there were some Dunlops that were changed FOC due to cracking.

The specialist said that they can remap the XFR to just over 600 bhp!!! Something to do in the future?!!!

I'll not be doing it for the time being!

Apparently the electronic diff on the R it gets the power down rather well. Another of his projects is an S Type R - real old man looking car with the 4.2 S/C V8. He has replaced the auto box with a manual - this means about 50bhp more at the wheels! Should make some great times on a track!

This evening I tried a short blat with Dynamic / Sport mode - the engine holds the gear up to just over 6500 revs! Amazing noise and mental acceleration 40-75 in a very short space of time. A quick car.

Looks great, but also subtle... although I'm guessing it doesn't sound subtle? A proper sleeper. Cool

How long before it gets traded in for an XF R-S? Smile

Followed this to work today .... must admit it looked brilliant...

Black wheels and Trims ....

Looked quite coupe like too ....

When I pulled up next to it though - quite clearly a diesel ...
