Good day one and all.

After months (years?) or loitering/browsing I decided to join today.
I also joined The other Side not too long ago.
Seldom have much to say but, occasionally, I may pop in for a wee blether.
Home is the Highlands, work is Germany.

Had the diesel XJ for the past 4 years (X350) - Thinking of changing at the end of this year/early 2013.
Before that XJR supercharged (X300)
Before that 3.6 XJ40
Before that range Rover 3.5 vogue
What else have I had....HiLux D/C pick-up, granada 2.9 scorpio. 2.0l cortina mk4, 1.3 escort hatch, Early isuzu Trooper.
Yam FJ1200, Kwak Z650, triumph sprint ST 955
....etc.
back to my first car a Rover SD1 3.5 SE auto when I got my first job after Uni....

Anyway, best be away.
Nice to meet you one and all.
Tschuss

Hi zuave...

Nice - what was that like to drive?

Morning Focus,

The XJR was a dream. In fact it was my dream car. The 4 litre straight 6 with the supercharger.
I saw JC drive one on TG when they first came out. Aquamarine metallic blue, ivory leather, auto box. 10 years later that is exactly what I bought.
I am lucky to have owned my dream car and, with being in Germany often, also take it to the limited 155mph on a number of occasions.
The XJ diesel is a very different beast. However, with age, I welcome the change to around 38mpg from the XJRs 22-ish mpg. Still miss that XJR though :-))!

Thanks zuave - something to dream about tonight :)

BTW I wouldn't worry about tinyurl unless the link spreads over more than one line - even then it doesn't seem to cause problems.
