Drove 300 mile round trip to country every weekend as well as a daily city commute. The XK never needed anything except a new wiper blade. Biggest problem was keeping it under speed limit. The car is most happy cruising at 80-90 mph. Direction headlights are perfect for country roads.
I finally purchased a 2010 XKR Coupe, after testing Mercedes E63 AMG, BMW Ms, Audi S5/6.. My wife immediately felt in love when she saw it "It's like an Ashton Martin !" she told me, yep we know why, same designer. That was a good start! But not enough for me. On paper the specifications are already very impressive, but it's really when you start to drive it that you realize what it really means. This car has it all ! It can be very soft and you can feel like in a lounge, but in a minute later, you switch on the "S" mode, press the accelerator, and you truly have a race car, and you can't believe you are already over speed limit (noises very well filtered). An eye catcher for sure!
Great Performance, but also the excellent work inside the car to filter road noises Seats are very comfortable, and perfectly adjustable. Strong brakes, good fuel performance (No Gas Guzzler tax), Fantastic Sound system. The Look is very "sexy" (In Ultimate Black with 20 Inch Wheels in particular)
Not impressed by the Nag. System (Previous Generation, DVD base). Need to move to HD base. Back seats are a joke, you can't seat adults (But you don't want anyone to seat behind anyway!) While we have the back parking sensors, I would also want a backup camera to help.
I recently purchased the 2010 XKR Coupe, after testing Mercedes, BMW (My wife didn't like the design of the E63 AMG or BMW Ms as much as the XKR).I do really enjoy every minute I drive it. The car design is amazing (in particular with the 20 Inch Wheels), and while it's really fast, it's never brutal. The interior filters very well the exterior noises. The seats are top notch and you can easily find your perfect driving position. You can drive for hours and not getting tired. The brakes are very strong (expected !). So far my mileage is 17 mpg Avg. (No gas Guzzler Tax compare to the E63 AMG) A fantastic GT, and an eye catcher (same designer than Ashton Martin)
The Power..510HP, adjust the gear mode to "S" and push the accelerator.You won't realize that you reached the speed limit so quickly! The comfort and interior design. Mix of luxury and Sport. All amenities (no option on this model) And the Sound system 525 Watts !
While there are front/rear parking sensors, I would have preferred a backup camera. The Nav System should be hard drive base (slow)
