    we've got a Jaguar 2 weeks ago, just wondering if anyone else is driving Jaguar. Nice car, though I didn't want us to change our BMW:::::::::smile)))))).

    No, but I did help a friend of mine change the spark plugs in his V12 E-Type many years ago.
    It took all afternoon, and you had to remove lots of engine accessories to even be able to access the plugs.

    Sorry, but that put me off Jaguars :-)
    Anyway, hope you enjoy it.

    (I've been very happy with my SAAB's)

    Eric, that was exactly my point to argue with my husband:::::::::::::smile))))))))))))))))))
    But I am surprised, this car is a fun. We took the latest model, it's kinda sport Jaguar.

      Congratulations on your new car! When you say "the latest model, it's kind sport", do you mean the XF? I think that is one fine lux sports car!

      I remember counting XKE's as a little kid and how cool I thought they were.

      Anyway, I hope you enjoy your car and have much fun driving it -- just stay clear of my FX35 and we won't have any problems (lol) smile.

    LOL People who buy new Jags usually do not change spark plugs themselves big_smile

    I think Kathryn (LDSNana) mentioned driving one.

      I didn't want Jaguar and I wast thinking of Jaguar as of overpriced cars ever, but since we've got this car, I am changing my opinion, slowly but surely:smile) We had Corvette and Supra before, I am driving Lexus now and we traded in  Jaguar for our BMW M5

        To be honest, I never drove one, and I never considered buying one - so I did not really checked how expensive they are. I just know they are. smile

        They used to have reputation of being both sporty and comfortable to great extent, but I think Ford managed to damage this exclusivity during its rule.

          The worst thing now is they have been recently sold...
          I think British should feel terrible that one of the most popular british brands have been sold...

          In Ford's defense, Jaguar also had a reputation for poor engineering,  and serious mechanical and electrical issues and I do think their quality issues have improved under Ford's ownership.

          I think they are beautiful looking cars, but they probably have the worst resale value of virtually any car on the road due to the damage that was done to their repuation before Ford bought them. A Jaguar loses significant value the moment it is driven off the lot and you can get one that is only a few years old fairly cheap compared to the initial sticker price.

            My sister just purchased a used Jaguar for almost $7,000,  had it inspected and its in excellent condition and looks new.  She can't afford a brand new one, but is thrilled with her purchase and sent me pics after pics of her emerald green Jaguar. smile

      True, but this guy is an enthusiast, and enthusiasts tend not to trust dealerships with their "babies".
      I don't trust the local dealer either, after I discovered that they don't even stock the correct gearbox oil for my car.
      I enjoy working on my cars - and only take it to a dealer when absolutely essential.

      I don't drive either, but have to learn how to drive as in the West Coast where I live now, driving is a necessity, and I am nervous about this,  so keep procrastinating;  my mate drives me everywhere.
