Default XF 3.0D S from Nam

Hi All,
Had to join this forum, cause where will one find such wealth of knowledge and experience in one place. Thank you all for allowing me to join.
I am from Africa - from a small diamond mining town in the far south_western corner of Namibia where wild oryx still roam freely in the streets .. no joke. I have proof.
But I joined to tell you about the Jaguar 3.0D S Premium Deluxe , year model 2013, Color: Dark Sapphire that I will pick up from the dealer in a week's time - she is currently at Panel beaters to Buff out hairline scratches and then for service at Land Rover/Jaguar before I pick her up .. Can't wait to drive the 1000 km back home - got 45 000 miles on the clock with one previous owner and did mostly highway miles over long distances. This is really special to find , I think, in a small country like ours. if the 2019 is out of reach (drooling).
This will be my first luxury & fastest car ever - and it's a Jaguar FX !
I get it for N$ 280 000 (Namibia dollars) .. ya, I know - forex not on our side.
What do you think ... Is this a good buy if I self service regularly - plan is to hold on for the next 10 years.
I ordered the Icarsoft LR V1.0 diagnostic tool for self service purpose and a battery tender as she will only be driven occasionally.

Now that you know alot about me and my new FX pls. tell me what your thoughts are on the above buy and any tips on keeping her safe in the garage (can I just put battery tender on and Bob's your uncle) to stay in good condition or is there more to it ?
Thanx
Cheers
Zakka

Welcome to the forums Zakka,

Good to have you with us.

My last XK was Dark Sapphire. It's a beautiful colour. Just make sure you don't get an oryx for a bonnet mascot! A battery tender is the essential to keeping a modern Jaguar free of electronic gremlins. Remember that with a low mileage example, servicing is on a time basis - every 12 months.

Follow this link https://www.jaguarforums.com/forum/xf-xfr-x250-44/ to the X250 forum for help, advice and information.

Please add vehicle details to your Signature to help others to give relevant advice. Go to the User CP button on the left of the top menu bar, then Settings & Options under Your Control Panel. Select Edit Signature and enter the details.

You can also visit the US Southwest Region forum by following this link https://www.jaguarforums.com/forum/us-southwest-37/ to find other members in your region.

Enjoy the XF and the forums.

Graham

Thank you Graham ... lol , will be on lookout for Oryx ... Also think it's a nice colour .. will probably have to wash often though - and will change oil and filter yearly.

No more than any car really.

Graham has mentioned the battery tender/minder, a MUST, and all mine have them.

Service the beast, more often will do NO harm at all in MY opinion.

Thanx Grant, from your signature I can see you are a real Jag enthusiast. Intelligent battery tender is on its way to me, incl. diagnostic tool. Nice to meet you.
