#10 of 74 Key and Owner's manual for a 2.5 Jaguar X-Type
Oct 07, 2004 (9:21 am)
I recently bought a 2003 Jaguar 2.5 X-type with 14k miles from a Budget car and sales dealer. When I went to close the deal I found out they did not have an owner's manual and they only had one key. Since it makes me nervous to have just one key I called the only Jaguar dealer in Las Vegas. I was told it costs $90 for a key plus the cost of programming it or about $300 total. A set of owner's manuals is $195. Budget has promised to get the manuals but not another key. Do you know of any other less pricey options to obtain a second key?
By the way, I paid 23,600 for the car. It is automatic with sunroof/split rear seat and driver power seat. Nice metallic paint too. I thought I was getting a good deal, what do you think?

hate to break it to you, Marisa, but a brand new '04 can be had for only $3k more with the current incentives ($2700 if you consider you'd get more than one key with a new one). But, if you are happy with the car, don't sweat it, enjoy it.

Except you would not be likely to find a 2.5 automatic. Also a dealer had told me that none of their incentives applied to 2.5 automatic so that he could actually sell 3.0 cheaper than 2.5 automatic.
However, a new 3.0 would probably been about only $4k more. But in our case, the wood steering wheel on that model eliminates any interest in a 3.0 ...who thinks that a wood steering wheel is better than leather, I just don't "get" that feature. (we did not like the ride with the low profile tires on the 3.0)
Those incentives expired Sept 30, btw.

I have a 2.5 with the all leather steering wheel. However, I think the wood on the 3.0 looks pretty cool. Do the low profile tires on the 3.0 give you less clearance in snow? I was of the mind that the 17" wheels give you more snow clearance than the 16" wheels. I took advantage of the $5500 discount but now I see it is up to $6000. I see that they increased the price on the 2005s by $1,000 - probably due to the increase in the price of oil.

Looks are one thing, feel is another...sweaty palms on a wood wheel is not a good feeling . My wife is the one who wants one of these cars and she did not like feel of the wood at all. I did not drive it myself, but I am sure I would much prefer the feel of leather.
There would be no difference in ground clearance, the larger wheels just mean lower profile tires. The outside diameter of the tire would be the same with the 17 inch as it is with 16 inch.
Price increase is probably because of the exchange rate. Also they added height adjustment feature to the standard passenger seat and reduced the cost to add automatic trans to the 2.5. I think for a 2.5 auto the net increase in list is like $600.

A leather steering wheel cover would be an easy and inexpensive "fix" to an adversion to a wood one!
#17 of 74 this board vs. Kelly Blue Book
Dec 08, 2004 (7:40 pm)
I hate to be a spoiler - but the fantastic prices quoted by buyers on this board do not reflect what the Kelly Blue Book indicates. Does this mean the KBB is not accurate or up to date?
I'm curious to know what kind of discounts (if any) are available on a brand new car, ordered custom from the factory.
