you will miss out on the huge torque from the v-12. With not much effort (larger plenems exhaust)...(fuel injected) the HP will rise to 400+. There's nothing like a throaty v12 revving.

I got the new XK series. It's a great car. So to take care of it I got myself a car cover from carscover.com. It looked like a decent cover. But my concern is that what if the cover scratches my car? Is it okay to put it on?

i would think the carcover would be okay but the new xk comes with a hefty price tag and i wouldnt risk it w/ a cheap cover. if it were me i would buy the genuine jag cover from a parts dept at a jag dealer.
#7 of 7 Is the "3rd Light" Spoiler Really Needed?
Mar 13, 2011 (8:28 pm)
I want to remove the third-light spoiler from my XK, then have the holes filed and painted on my XK coupe. I have heard a grape-vine rumor that Jaguar added the spoiler due to unexpected instability with the original design, but I find it hard to believe they missed testing the body in a wind tunnel, or that even if they did miss it, they would still be bolting one on after 5 years rather than integrating it in the rear deck lid. If there is, indeed a problem, at what speeds might it become a problem?
