There are so few high-end aftermarket wheels for our cars. The only BBS option is the CH-R II, which is a true 2-piece wheel. Also only in 21x9 and 21x10.5, and expensive. I'd love a set for my XKR-S, though.

My '07 XKR Coupe Before


And After
3M Wrap. I have since sold her and no longer have a Jaguar in the stable. I am considering an F-Type R, or perhaps finding a another nice used XKR in the future.

I'm enjoying it a lot! The sound (aftermarket Novitec exhaust) is glorious! Much better than the XKR. However, I really do miss the XKR as a daily driver. The Ferrari does not lend itself well for that. I have test driven one F-Type and it's exhaust note is awesome and definitely a selling point for me. That, and being able to drive it every day.

I remember a person in New York City who used a 365GTB/4 as a 'daily driver' and had to change the spark plugs every few months due to fouling.

It proved to be a very entertaining car to drive on snowy roads...

Smile Outside storage for the Winter

My XK has been away since December 18th, the first snow fall. I do take the cover off and run the car, around the block, a distance of about 20miles, once the snow melts. This coming week it promises to be a bit warmer, and I shall get it started for another Winter run. So far not a problem, it starts every time, hasn't needed a jump start, or a battery maintainer even when the weather is below 10f.

Be careful about leaving them together unattended like that, that is how little F-types come to be.

Man, I don't know about that suspension hanging like that for months-on-end... Great for the tires, not-so-great for everything else.

I would agree 100%. There is simply no reason to store a car with the wheels off the ground. The suspension is just not made to support the wheels in this position for a length of time. Please put it down on the ground where it belongs.
