    It's not really English. It's more Ford than anything.

    Both have an elliptical shaped grille and are convertible other than that just about nothing.

    This car is scary fast and a true sleeper. Is supper quiet and smooth. We were pretty even till maybe 60 and then it was over. I took the jag up to 120 and it got there so fast it was incredible. And it was as smooth and tight at 120 as it is a 55. so I now know what my family car will be one day.
    Not to be a ****, but going by your perf numbers, I could buy 4 GTOs, or 2 Vettes, or 4 STi, (you get the idea...) that are faster for the price of that Jag.
    06 GTO M6 Quicksilver, SLP 455 Bobcat, LS7 Clutch w/ SS line (RPM tune:373rwhp/373rwtq)
    07 WRX TR M5 Garnet Red Pearl w/ Straight PPGs and Cusco front LSD (Agile tune:307whp/343wtq)

    I wouldn't have it on there if it weren't true.
    So you're trying to tell me that Jag and Land Rover have never, in the history of the modern automobile, had reputations for being quirky, unreliable and high maintenance????

    As for Jags being ugly, like someone said, not all of them.


    You can't tell me this Jag is ugly.

    I'm cornfused.. he got the Jag used for 17k. Are you telling me that you can get 4 GTOs, 2 Vettes, or 4 STis for 17k? 'Cause if you can, I'm shopping were you are.

Jags are like BMW's with even more of a pompous attitude type of car. Although I do like the BMW 335xi. I used to like jags when I was 10 years old...now I know better.

    But they aren't bad cars...just not to my liking.
