Jaguar F-Type Owner Gives Active Exhaust System an Intense Workout

By -

After a year of driving the F-Type, British YouTuber declares it is the best car that he has ever owned.

British YouTube personality Oliur has owned his Jaguar F-Type for over a year. In that time, he has loved just about every aspect of the ownership experience, so he put together a video detailing everything that he likes about his F-Type along with mentioning the few minor points that he doesn’t love about his supercharged ragtop. The video from his YouTube channel is chock-full of footage of the sleek Jaguar roaring through the English countryside.

The Cons

Since Oliur’s list of complaints is so short, we will look at them first. He feels that the seats could be a bit more comfortable, especially for longer drives. He doesn’t like his seating position relative to the dash line and top of the doors, as it makes for less visibility around the car. This problem resulted in him scratching a wheel because he couldn’t see the curb while parking, even when he has the seat in the highest position.

Jaguar F-Type Infotainment Screen

His biggest complaint is with the infotainment screen, which he goes so far to call “absolute garbage.” He doesn’t like that it has a touchscreen and he insists that touchscreens are a bad, unsafe idea in cars. He doesn’t like that he has to use the touchscreen to adjust the climate control, mentioning several times that he really doesn’t like the infotainment system in general.

That is the full extent of the negativity towards the Jaguar F-Type.

The Pros

While Oliur doesn’t like the infotainment system and he doesn’t love the seats or the seating position, he loves everything else about the F-Type. He raves about the exterior design and he goes on and on about the factory-equipped active exhaust system, which is easy to understand. The F-Type sounds incredible in every driving situation.

Jaguar F-Type High Front

He loves the power of the supercharged V6, much like he loves the manners of the ZF automatic transmission. He also loves the handling capabilities and the fit and finish of the loaded interior. Though, he has made some changes to the car over the past year and a half of ownership, replacing the chrome wheels and trim with black wheels and trim. The result is a mean-looking sports car and we agree that it looks much more aggressive with the black features.

Jaguar F-Type Before and After Mods

Most importantly, he points out that in a year and a half of owning the Jaguar F-Type V6 Sport, he hasn’t had to make any repairs. He has replaced the tires and he has followed the routine maintenance schedule, but there haven’t been any issues with the car at all. He closes by calling it the best car that he has ever owned, stating that he absolutely adores if after spending the last 18 months behind the wheel.

"Before I was old enough to walk, my dad was taking me to various types of racing events, from local drag racing to the Daytona 500," says Patrick Rall, a lifetime automotive expert, diehard Dodge fan, and respected auto journalist for over 10 years. "He owned a repair shop and had a variety of performance cars when I was young, but by the time I was 16, he was ready to build me my first drag car – a 1983 Dodge Mirada that ran low 12s. I spent 10 years traveling around the country, racing with my dad by my side. While we live in different areas of the country, my dad still drag races at 80 years old in the car that he built when I was 16 while I race other vehicles, including my 2017 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat and my 1972 Dodge Demon 340.

"Although I went to college for accounting, my time in my dad’s shop growing up allowed me the knowledge to spend time working as a mechanic before getting my accounting degree, at which point I worked in the office of a dealership group. While I was working in the accounting world, I continued racing and taking pictures of cars at the track. Over time, I began showing off those pictures online and that led to my writing.

"Ten years ago, I left the accounting world to become a full-time automotive writer and I am living proof that if you love what you do, you will never “work” a day in your life," adds Rall, who has clocked in time as an auto mechanic, longtime drag racer and now automotive journalist who contributes to nearly a dozen popular auto websites dedicated to fellow enthusiasts.

"I love covering the automotive industry and everything involved with the job. I was fortunate to turn my love of the automotive world into a hobby that led to an exciting career, with my past of working as a mechanic and as an accountant in the automotive world provides me with a unique perspective of the industry.

"My experience drag racing for more than 20 years coupled with a newfound interest in road racing over the past decade allows me to push performance cars to their limit, while my role as a horse stable manager gives me vast experience towing and hauling with all of the newest trucks on the market today.

"Being based on Detroit," says Rall, "I never miss the North American International Auto Show, the Woodward Dream Cruise and Roadkill Nights, along with spending plenty of time raising hell on Detroit's Woodward Avenue with the best muscle car crowd in the world.
