Emphasizing some of worst non-sense phrases ever seen:

quote:
Well, having binned my Audi S4 due to their lying guarantee.....race tuned suspension etc and bags of (chipped and tuned) oomph....ONLY 10.3 litres/100k 30mpg roughly(?) which is 5 litres less than the Audi per 100.... , mediterranean types ...Turks, Albanians, Serbs, Afghans etc etc etc How they manage to buy (even an old Muckycedes)


Want a non lying guarantee on a tuned S4 ?
Want to have low fuel consumption also ?
Mediterranian types ?
Turks, auslanders ?

Yertis and Marki, I agree with you.

And now, Trefor, I am only writing this from Mediterranian country, repeat, for those with brains hard as a brick, only writing from here. I am not Italian 100 %, only in part. And now ? Yeah, the camel smelling people is driving really bad, you know, desert driving rules.

About driving, this morning, after leaving my house and my non Italian wife, some Frenchman with, errr, Lancia Kakka, wanted to race with me, driving like mad. Poor French .... Next I saw a group of Albanian boys with a Clio wearing baseball caps going round and round, and then i tought, where's JSMG to fix this situation.... and then, when entered my office, there was waiting for me a new programmer that is working for me, almost, trying to survive because he's totally incapable... oh yes, it's an Ireland origins guy... and so on.

End of rant

Sotty for grammar, spelling, language for all those people that can be considered civilised.

Yes real fun, especially on tyres and brake pads, not to speak of passengers eyeballs popping out......

Your profile say's you're called Leonardo and come from Italy ... which is a Mediterranean country. Whether you're Australian or Italian, you profile says you come from a Med country. I said "who it appears is from a mediterranean country" and what the heck is wrong with that?

My brain is nice and mushy thank you.

Nothing's wrong. Ok, i am not having nothing against you but against some sciovinists. Your post was a little bit like "twist the knife" manner. Don't bother, i gave you a hint in "Roads" topic.

Cheers

Oh yes, some mediteranian guy without mustaches almost killed my wife and kids 2 days a go. He was driving red Rover (no, no, he's not reading this I know) and he even made an "road rage" approach after the incident. He is un-aware of the fact that I am seeking for him. When I will find that i will, at minimum, broke his both legs.

Saw that Go Go - thanks. We're booked into the Beau Rivage in Baveno at the end of June (as per Bennos suggestion) ... I'm looking forward to the Alps in the TVR now (did them in a TT last time, effective but dull in comparison - I complained each time we went through a tunnel).

i think that kids would love to have the F-type car, i know i'm 16 and i love that car i would not mind having a car like that. I think it's the most bueatiful car in the world besides the XJ220, which i have a matchbox car of. But i think these F-types should be in production for a descent price that any kid could have their parents help them buy.

All these tears for the loss of the F-Type! Personally, I think it's good that it'll never see the light of day . . . good for Jaguar, that is. While they're at it, deep-six the S-Type and the X-Type as well.

Jaguar is (or aspires to be) a premium marque, and Ford desperately needs it to be so. Diluting the brand with "affordable" leapers--be they X-Types or teaser F-Types--is no way to secure a global luxury contender for the second largest automaker on Earth. (Of course, I'm presuming Aston Martin will continue its near-invisibility in the face of the 360M, SLR, Bentley Coupe, Cien, C7, Murcielago, the odd Bugatti or two, etc. etc.)

Ford has the resources to assist Jaguar in becoming one of the world's most enviable marques. Going down-market so every bloke with a paycheck can have one is not the way to get there. To wit: a Mondeo by any other name . . .

Hmmm, maybe Ford could buy TVR and give them the F-Type design . . . Nah, never mind.

Cheers!

Good point JMGS4 my XKR certainly seems to clear the fast lane of Numptys (most of the time anyway)and Jags in general do have a lot of road presence



Couldn't agree more. I just completed a 480 mile
day trip in my XJ8, and only one driver wouldn't
pull over when flashed at.

They only get flashed at when there is room to
pull over, and how many other cars could you complete
such a long journey, mostly in heavy rain,
and still feel good afterwards ?

I'd buy the 370 HP version if I had fast enough
roads to run it on.

I beg to differ, Jaguar have a history of providing desirable cars at a reasonable price. The target market was youngish 'professionals' eg. doctors and lawyers. They should continue to target this market, ie. BMW opposition, not expensive luxury barges such as Mercedes.

Jaguar have a history of pandering to whatever market takes their fancy. The management of Jaguar change direction like the wind.

A long, long time ago in a galaxy far, far away Jaguar made proper race winning sports cars. This is what made the badge great back then.

Then all this was thrown away as they made big fat barges instead. Not a single proper drivers car anywhere, for decades and decades.

Now were getting rebadged mondeo's and overweight gt's for the american market. The promises of sports cars never comes to anything.

Jaguar died when it stopped making sports cars all those many years ago. It's just one of Fords branding exercises these days. Just like all the little names VAG has collected.

maserati?
