1999 Jaguar XK-Series XK8 2dr Convertible

Review

I have a friend who owned this car and was moving out of the country and couldn't take it. I have been salivating over it for some time, so buying it was a no-brainer. I haven't owned a convertible before, so it has been a delight driving around topless this summer. The interior is comfortable, but those back seats are a bit silly. The acceleration is good and the hum of the engine is delightful. I've had quite a few people ask me about the car at stoplights and stop signs. What a fun car to drive.

Favorite Features

The quiet convertible roof. The fact that it has a glass (not plastic) rear window. The hum of the engine. The stereo system is very good, but I wish the CD changer was in the dash. The key has a very cool shape. ;)

Suggested Improvements

The wiper lever is too close to the ignition. I regularly turn the wipers on when starting the engine. Also, I wish the little back windows could be put up when the top is down.
