car5car, the only advantage I can give the X is its price at the moment. I have worked on both and the XJ (mine being a 2012) is just as easy to work on as the X. Sure, the XJ doesn't have a true manual tranny, but, you do have the option of getting the supercharged V6 with a sport-tronic tranny which will allow you to shift it manually using the paddle shifters. That way, when you don't feel like shifting, the car will shift for you. And the ride and power of the XJ is miles ahead of the X.

Me, had most models, wish I still had some of them.

Needed a car when the Black S got totaled, and the Black on Black 2010 LE 2.1 (Power house) popped up 4 streets away, done deal.

Got to like it, NOT a keeper at all, and when my planets align a tad better and XF V8 will replace it. Could be a while.

Easy to work on, HA, took hours to change the serpentine belt, but a learning curve all the same.

Its a JAG, nuff said.

for me the obvious selling point was the price, an xj from the same era (x350) is what i woulda bought if i had the dough probably!

as the x is also my first car it's been a great learning experience having a relatively easy car to work on
