Sounds gruntier outside the car in the f type. A bit more raw at idle. Bmc are supposed to be the ducks guts, I've got no complaints.

I'm on vorsteiner 21's with Michelin and the ride isn't noticeably harder than it was with OEM 19's and P-zeros. There is a tiny difference on bad roads, that's all.

All fitted. There was some initial vibration but I went through the bedding in process and it is all sorted, now very smooth. They look great and might even have benefits other than aesthetics! ...

The XE that I have ordered for my missus comes with a 10", I think Ian would have a hard time convincing her to give up 10 inches for 7.

I agree, but I think the new XE is potentially a turning point (or returning point) to the nicer interiors. It is getting great reviews for the interior, which include wood trim options. That...

Not to disagree, but everyone that I know that has the Nazi [email protected]*boy hairstyle sported by the guy in the add (and one of them is a business partner) drives a Range Rover Sport.

I used to use a pressure cleaner on mine (spray head rather that the agro one) which works a treat, but there are some reports that it damages the paint on the wheel. I had my Vorsteiners coated and...

Hi. I thought that the ride from the prestige was very smooth, I wonder whether it is your tyres that are the problem. We have Dunlops on our XE R sport, the ride (on 19's) is amazingly good though...

Agreed. I'm thinking that this is really a last hurrah for the Jag sedans, personally I doubt we will see a new one past 2025 save maybe an electric XJ.

My 2 cents...
For power and noise and excitement, the RWD V8 (pre-16) but it has an awful infotainment if that is a thing for you;
For more usable power and noise, the 16 update AWD V8 - but check...

Cant imagine why they are so weak, the OEM Jag wheels weigh a tonne (and I had the back injury to prove it). They must be made out of lead.

true, but if it keeps your interest in the car for a few more years then you will save heaps as the depreciation curve lessens. I figure when the cars are new I lose about $30K a year in years one...
