Fantastic Sports Car And Real Looker — This car is my fun car. Really love driving and looking at it. Everyone comments on what a great looking car it is. They think it is still new. Fun to drive and comfortable enough for longer trips with lots of luggage space. Love this car!

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Incredible sports car for the price. Comfortable, plenty of power and space in truck for 2 sets of golf clubs.  Great looking roaster that can be driven to the beach, mountains or afternoon drive.

Cons: Can be expensive to maintain or fix if you have one that hasn't been cared for previously.

Terriffic — 1998-2005 xk series cars are the best bargain out there. Good looks, lots of power, loads of trunk space and beautiful interior. This is my second one after the first was totalled when a steel plate was popped into it from the car in front. Small number of electrical issues that are easily solved. Very easy to add aftermarket electrical mods like bluetooth, etc.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: most car for the money anywhere.

Cons: electrical gremlins once in a while

Look Up Car In A Dictionary And Read Xk8 — Follows in the spirit of the sixties E type .Look up car in a dictionary read XK8. This car is sensational and lives up to its looks. Great performance, and good economy for car of 4.0 litres and a nice throaty V8.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Everything you could want in a sports coupe

Cons: Dont get to drive it enough

Drove It, Liked It, But Wouldn't Buy One — My mate had this car and lent it to me for 6 mths when he wnet to the States in 2003. What a dream that was! Not a bad car really but wouldn't buy one. Was a fun car to drive nevertheless. Have to say, his choice of burgundy was a bit suspect!

Pros: Good looker

Cons: Price

2001 Jaguar Xkr Cabriolet — Excellent Performance and Great Looks. Lots of fun to drive with the hood down, when the English weather permits! Let down by Build Quality (its not German!) and odd electrical gremlins....You dont buy these kind of cars for economy, but in my opinion it is very reasonable to own in terms of costs.

Pros: Performance & Looks

Cons: Build Quality & Electrical Faults

A Beautiful Machine, Capable Of 165 But With All The Grace And Comfort Of A Cruiser — I've always wanted this car, it's been in my top 5 cars forever, now i own one i'm slightly dispapointed that it's not quite fast enough and not quite comfortable enough, don't get me wrong, 0-62 in about 7.5, top speed of 150 plus, and it gets there quick, and the comfort is wonderful with leather intrioirs and all extras to cater for your journey, but i think i was expecting something more form a car that has a 4 litre V8, something biblical, it makes a satisfying purr but it's not that impressive, it leaves you feeling slightly disappointed with the ride. However in terms of looks there's few cars to rival, unlike it's sister aston martin it's lines are more rounded, smoother, more graceful, aston screams machismo, but the xk8 oozes class, even when i'm driving mine and see another on the road i can't take my eyes off them, they have like all jaguars aged incredibly well, infact become better looking as they've got older.

Pros: Fast, Comfortable ncredibly beautiful

Cons: Electrical problems occasionally, not quite aggressive enough, nor comfortable enough to merit purchasing over a continental gt for example.
