eek OMFG I'm going to buy one

Isn't it nice for a change when internet HYPE underestimates the real thing ? I bought a X-Type Jag as I couldn't wait for Barra and was going to get a Festiva or something for the Mrs.

Her car just got upgraded to a 260kw XR8!

Boss is a good name
XR Dial are unreal
Interior is brilliant

Very modern, and the first Australian Muscle car without the "bogan" element.

how about you getting a XR8 for yourself, so you'll have both the jag and the ford, and buy your mrs a festiva? :s6:

Jumping to conclusions a bit there

The new jaguars under Ford were supposed to be the second coming of the empire
So far they havent been too warmly recieved or reported on

sure the Ba looks good
but save the Holden bashing till the cars come out

They've sold more cars in the past 6 months than since 1996 or something, and all the media reviews have been very postive. What have you been reading ?

Anyways, I test drove BMW 3 series, Merc, Renault, Volvo and the Jag was in another league. If top end Fords get the same 5 speed auto as I have in my Jag, your going to be very happy.

All the Ausie and American magazines
and they have said that the new Ford japgs are ok
but are outclassed by the gremans and other Euro cars

Of course their sales have gone up
they were a one model make back then

Taxis would obviously be getting the LPG dedicated 6 (Straight Gas).. which is around 160kw me thinks.
