Thanks. I am shooting for the quiet ride, so I'll keep looking. Many manufacturers say their product provides a quiet ride, but quiet to them may be different to me!!

Thanks. It sounds like you are satisfied and I did hear that Pirelli's do provide a quieter ride.

What would be the best OBD to get for my '02 X Type. I want to be able tom use it when the car is operating. I have a rough idle thtat shows up on heavy acceleration and decleration that remains til I restart the car. The amber and read dash lights come on but it doesn't store a code..

Really want to buy a 2005 X-Type with a manual transmission, low km's and the VDP package if possible. Is there such an animal out there, or am I just dreaming? The manual seems to have so much more punch than the auto and a lot more fun to drive. We've been Jag owners for a long time now but have no idea what the new generation cats are all about. Lots of problems? Big repair bills? Do I need a live-in mechanic? Anything special I should look out for, or look for, when trying out used cats?

Since no one has replied to your request for information, I would offer this: From all the stories I've read concerning all Jag models, everyone says the same thing: buy the best you can afford, preferably a "certified" model from a Jag dealer, with an extended warranty if possible. When anything "goes" on a Jag, repair will be expensive.
A Jag is a beautiful but expensive mistress.

Thanks for the input but I'm sticking to my guns on this dream - in fact am now looking at a beautiful S-Type "R" - can't find a stick so will settle for the supercharger instead. Unfortunately, the Jag. dealers are asking upwards of $l0 grand more for their cars and I think I can get a lot of repairs done for that kind of money. If I pick carefully I should be able to get a fairly low mileage car that will last a while. I know about Jags and their problems, problems, problems so I won't be surprised. I've set aside a sum to handle unforseen problems - my eyes are wide open and I think a CAA membership will be in order too - remember they are mostly Ford stuff now and if they've dumped the Lucas junk problems should really be minimal, hopefully. Thanks again.

I have a 3.0 with all the bells and whistles for that year. Purchased it certified and then the extended (still covered) warrantee. I was/am meticulous with the dealer. It is a great car.., but I agree, without a warrantee, it would be a bucket with a hole in it. Eyes open...acquire it.

Nice dream. I've owned 2 X-Types, an 03 2.5 and an 06 3.0. However, several months ago, a friend that works at the local Jag dealer gave me a heads-up that they had a nice 06 S-Type 4.2 VDP with Nav come in off lease, and, were putting it on the lot as a certified car. My buddy let me keep the S-Type overnight, and, the next morning I swapped my X-Type for it. My 3.0 X was nice, but, the S-Type V8s are muscle cars in tuxedos.
