I bought this car for its looks and fuel economy. I love the 19" wheels and the fact that this was a limited edition. The only thing that really bothers me about this car is that there is no cd player on the dash, and I have to go in the trunk to change the cd's.

While shopping for sports cars, I
happened to rent an XK convertible on
a trip to California. Unbelievable,
great trunk space (considering the
size of Mercedes and BMW trunks)
and "elegant performance". Whatever
it was, I was sold. Other cars might
be able to post higher g-ratings in
the skidpad or faster 0-60, but you'll
find passion in a Jag. Found a great
dealer in my home state that got me
the color combination I wanted. I
have never smiled so much driving in
my life! Even better with the top
down -- that way the climate control
system gets exercised.

We have a 2004 S type R very fast, we
also had the 1999 XK8 and sold it to
buy the 2005 XK8. What a step up from
The 2005 ride is a lot better and the
car is better built. The 99 was a very
good car but the 2005 is so much better.
I use to drive the S type R but now my
wife drives it and I have taken to
driveing the 2005 XK8

When I went looking for a car for my
wife, I never anticipated buying a
Jag. When I walked in, I knew the XK8
was the best looking car I had ever
seen, and it handled just like I
thought it would. A fantastic buy, and
I have never been more happy with a car
in my life, and my wife is thrilled by
her georgeous convertible. My only
problem is I drive too fast in it.
