1999 Jaguar XK-Series XK8 2dr Convertible
I traded a 98 Porsche Boxster for a 99 Jaguar XK8 a few years ago.son I did it was to have a back seat for my kids to ride.
Unfortunately the back seat is so small only kids under 5 can fit.
No complaints. It's a sleek, nice design.
Extremely difficult to enter/exit but once inside is comfortable .
The wood interior is nice but the rest is cheap, easily breakable plastic.
The well-known cheaply-made plastic timing chain tensioners should have been replaced on all the XK under warranty.
Overall by no means a luxury car. Then again, I'm comparing it to an LS Lexus.
Needs a self covering convertible top.
Shouldn't have to get out of a $70,000 car to manually cover the retracted top.
