    After joining here some 9 years ago when I was running a CLK63, I’ve gone through several Jags and a Tesla P100D. I am about to take delivery of a 2015 S63 AMG Coupe that I managed to track down with super low mileage, so this is just a hi to everyone!!

    Out of interest which Jags have you owned?

    With a nipper on the way I need to change my E coupe and J’s keep catching my eye!

    All 3 I had were XF’s, finishing off with an XFR-S.

    Very nice...look forward to the pics. I did have a look at these recently but didn't quite want to spend what they were.

    Went down the Jaguar route in the end. Never had an XF as was always smitten with the XJ interior. I had an X351 XJ SWB 3.0 Twin Turbo Diesel a few years back.

    Just bought a 2010 XJ-L 5.0 V8 SuperSport Supercharged and collect it Monday morning.

    Look forward to seeing the pics of the S65

    I can’t help being curious as to how you got on with that; isn’t that the longest-range, maximum power model with phenomenal acceleration?

    That’s the one 0-60 in 2.36 secs. I’ve had some powerful cars in my time but nothing compared to the Tesla for acceleration. You had maximum torque from zero and it was equivalent to 970nm!
