    Jaguar XJ and XF build quality

    The 3.0D XF S I had as a rental in Germany last year left a big ? over the quality of Jag's. It was very new and only had a couple of K's mls on the clock. Nice and comfortable car and very fast indeed but the buttons in the car screamed - Cheap! Engine also went into limp mode several times...

    Summer Trip To Poland

    Here in Cologne a litre of diesel will set you back about €1.44 (£1.25). Super Diesel costs another €0.10/litre and petrol is more expensive. Aral Ultimate 102 (I think that's the name for it) costs €1.67 :eek: Have a nice trip to Poland. As others have said, enjoy the beer!!

    C350 CDI fuel consumption

    In the 2006 C350 Cdi Estate I had I managed about 35-37mpg on avg. 42-43mpg on a long run and in town about 27-29mpg. After buying the Brabus D6 box, I gained a little, but mainly on the long run. In town, no difference. 2003 E55 AMG (saloon) - best ever was 28.1mpg. My 2007 330d (tuned to...

    Mods and insurance

    They DO expect it..... When asked about options, I had to state every single one of them, even no cost options! They did try to charge an additional £80 for rear factory tinted windows. A complaint letter later and I was refunded. The following year, no charge for factory tinted windows (was...

    ML63 or ML420 - Whats the opinion ?

    We used to run a couple of the 420's and about 6 320's in our company. The 420 was great! Loved every moment when driving them. Nothing wrong with the 320 but would feel a bit slow on the german autobahn when trying to keep up with traffic. The only problem we had was the fact that all the...

    goodbye mb

    To clarify some of the Volvo talk.... Personally I am a big fan of Volvo but as some may know, have had some MB's and despite now driving both Volvo and a Bmw 3 (sorry!) I very much miss the MB's...there is something special about an MB. :) Volvo shares engines with Ford and Peugeot. The...

    Last Years Cost

    Of course you are right. One should still include it I think, just like you say. Either way, shares or cars can be a very expensive thing to own!
