2012 Jaguar XF Supercharged: Glare

November 23, 2012

That right there is my face (and a bit of my leg). I stumbled across this handsome devil while, for the 9,000th time, scrolling through the photos of Kurt and I'strip to Alaska in our Long Term 2012 Jaguar XF Supercharged.

Good thing, too, because I forgot about this annoying feature of our Jag. Look closely at my face. No, not the bags under my eyes or my poor beard-growing ability, look at the light shining almost directly into my eyes.

Fun, right?

Unfortunately that's not from Kurt's equipment, any of our bling or some mirrored sports car being driven by a pop star. No, that's coming off of the gear-selector knob in the Jag. I already don't like the parlor-trick pop-up feature, this just makes it worse. We ended up having to drape a shirt or hat over it at least once a day.

Not cool, Jag, not cool. Follow the jump to see what it looks like when not trying to blind the driver.
