I had ivory, oyster and walnut in my first XF, honestly I think walnut is horrible but in that combination it is very classy. That said I couldnt wait to wrap over it in my XKR, I personally like trees outside of my car rather than inside, and in the XKR it was all over the place, it looked like a beaver had thrown up in there.

NewLester strangely enough my wife agrees with you about the 2020 upgrade, she thinks (after I made her watch the 10 minute promotional video, no doubt she was wishing that intead I put on a video of some lesbians having fun like other husbands do) that the new shape is boxier than the old and she is more of a fan of the rotary dial than the F Type shifter. I am undeterred though, to me the 2020 model is what you would get if you took all of my complaints and then resolved them, save that personally I'd like more height on the rear wheel well so that we could fit some nice wide wheels in there, like the Project 8. I'd also like quad pipes, if they can have them in a WRX 4 potter there is no reason why we cant in the XE.

I priced up the 2020 model 221KW HSE, it is coming in at about the same that I paid in 2015 for the 180KW 25T, which I have to say is pretty appealing. It would also come in cheaper than a current 25T which is sitting on the dealer floor. That should undercut the BMW 330i a little, not that I'd buy one as the 3 series is a bit common for my tastes. I reckon Jag have the pricing and inclusions right at last, even their options arent as ridiculously expensive as they used to be. The missus is warming up to the idea, but has drawn the line at Propeller wheels as she likes her venoms.

How were the diesel XE's selling compared to the petrol versions here in the US? It is really a shame this car did not sell better in general. It really is something unique compared to the all-too-common 3 Series and C Class.

I don't know about diesels in the US but in Europe they accounted for 90% of sales (could that be?) and the diesel option is being dropped. I don't understand that logic!
And I agree on the uniqueness. When someone says "What is it?" and you say a Jaguar, you get a "Wow." So even though they don't know cars, they think a Jaguar is something special. I hope they can pull out of this slump.

Diesel is a dying format for JLR. The goal is electric/gas hybrid until they can be 100% electric.

As much as I wish they retain internal combustion powerplants if that's what it will take to save the brand then so be it. I'd absolutely hate for Jaguar to go the way of Saab.

I'm doing my part, I am just ordering the p300. It just looks to be much improved in every way (according to my tastes). I am getting one nearly fully loaded for the same as what I paid for the 25T 3 1/2 years ago. The only issue is that it is my wife's car but I think she will have trouble keeping me out of it.

Thanks. If I needed a new car I'd get an XE without hesitation, a left-over new diesel.
