Hi Jon,

Who ever gets your car assuming you will sell it will get a jewel of a car. Like you, I stole my S-Type in 2009 and had it for around six years. I sometimes wish I still had it since it...

How about this? A guy saves his dog by punching out a kangaroo. He managed to land a wicked right cross to the kangaroo's jaw.

I've seen seal clubbings that were more sporting than what happened yesterday. Trump was totally outclassed by Clinton and probably blew the election right there. Then today, he keeps complaining...

Jim,

I think the difference in hp is how the British rate it as opposed to the US rates it. I've seen both values though. By the way, Michelle Rodriguez of Fast and Furious fame, did 201 mph in...

I've got about 133K on it right now because my commute is 92 miles one way. I'm averaging about 27 mpg overall because DC traffic during rush hour is horrendous. I don't mind the drive because the...

Jay2, my deepest deepest sympathies to what you are going through right now. It seems that a senseless tragedy is making it worse by the authorities.

Range Revelation

I recently got a job where my commute is about 90% highway and 10% in-town driving. Previously I was used to seeing about 370 or so miles until empty when I filled up the tank. Now I'm seeing about...

According to my Jaguar service manager, the ETM was not available for 2006 and new XJs. The write up appears to be for an S-Type since they have two message centers. My 2005 S-Type did...
