Overall:

XK is a beautiful car. But, I had difficulty keeping up with the local traffic. The car looks like it is going to perform, but it is a dog. I dont understand where the supercharged V8 power goes to. It feels like it is missing the first gear.

The XK8 is ALMOST the attention grabber as the XKE. Ive seen a lot of the advertised with 170K+ miles. I was looking for a convertible with a large enough trunk to carry a wheelchair, and unfortunately this car wont work for me. Closest I can find to meeting my needs is a BMW 645, but it doesnt have the appeal of the Jag.

The XK 8 is a comfortable car for road trips and has more room than the SL class.

Sexy — I fell in love with this car the moment I saw it. Although it is a few years old now I still think that no other Jag comes close to the looks of the beauty and the compliments never stop coming.

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

Pros: One of the most beautiful cars ever made based on the E Type

Cons: No usable back seat but who cares?

Overall:

This Is The Most "fun" Car I Have Ever Owne. — This car drives like it is "on rails". I have owned other high performance cars but this one out performs even my favorite Corvette. More importantly, it does it in total quiet and comfort that you would expect from a luxury sport car. Jaguar has always been an exotic but this one takes out the reliability fear associated with the old Jag's. With Ford's oversight Jaguar is a new beast, and a force to be reckoned with. I was torn between the XK8 or a Mercedes SLK....until I drove them both.....there was no question after that.

Pros: This is a drivers car.  My second, the first was an XKE.  This is one of the Ford Quality Controlled Vehicles and it shows.  This car has never let me down, short of 1 flat tire I have never been "on the shoulder".  Luxury and comfort this is truly an affordable exotic.  The comparable model on today's market is over $95K.

Cons: Although my local Firestone Dealer can service this car, he has to order simple parts like oil filters which add a day to the process.

Jag Xk8 — It's black, it's fast, it's uber cool and it's a Jag what more do you want to know. 0-180mph in no time, especially when you have the 'S' button on. A complete head turner, if you head can turn that quick!

Pros: 4 litre engine compesates for my small manhood

Cons: 17mpg
