You are in the Sedans
What is this discussion about?
Audi A8, BMW 7 Series, Jaguar XJ-Series, Lexus LS 460, Mercedes-Benz S-Class, Volkswagen Phaeton, Maserati Quattroporte, Mercedes-Benz CL-Class, Sedan
Let's try to define this forum as being limited to luxury performance vehicles where the mainstream version in a typical configuration has an MSRP of at least $60k.
A luxury vehicle with a base price of $59k qualifies because it would typically be bought with some additional equipment, bringing the MSRP over $60k.
Vehicles like the E, 5, A6, M, or GS, even if available in certain versions over $60k, don't qualify because they are cars from companies that have higher end cars in their lineups.

Ok I've had this car for nearly 20k miles now and I'm loving it. When I first purchased the car, the dealer had to update the software for my bluetooth to work with my phone. Not long after that, Sprint/HTC sent an update and now the phone is perfectly integrated with the car.
I had an issue with the sunroof making a "popping" noise when I hit a bump or entered or left my driveway. Jaguar sent the dealer a kit and now the car is perfectly silent other than the lovely noise from the exhaust when I lay down the accelerator.
I've owned 3 MB. Two were S 500's and one was a 2003 SL 500. My wife now drives a 2010 E 350. All were purchased new. The S Classes had their issues when I first purchased them as well. The SL would "pop" when I lowered the top after owning it 6 months. Turned out that the little black panel on the back wasn't installed properly and would catch on the trunk while the hard top was lowering into the trunk area. It seems to me that all "luxury " cars are quirky. I know a person who own's a Maybach and that thing has so many gremlins it should star in a horror movie.
Bottom line is this. Buy what you're comfortable with owning. There is no such thing as a perfect machine. Even if there were, it would be less perfect within 3 years after a newer version is introduced...lol.
To me this Jaguar is a home run. When I bought mine there were only 4 in my local area. Now I'm seeing them more frequently. It seems the smart money is looking for value these days and Jaguar delivers in luxury, power and value in spades. Look out MB and BMW. Jaguar is for real !!!
