New member, first time Jaguar owner

Postby PlinthAdenoid » Tue Apr 28, 2015 10:03 pm

Hi all, I'm Matt, a first time Jaguar owner who has dipped his toe in with a 2007 XJR. Had it about three weeks now, it's not perfect but pretty close and with a little care and attention from me I'm sure it'll be a fine car. It's already a fine car, I mean I just want to get it superb.

Anyway, hello!

Matt,

Welcome to the club and to the x350 section of the Bulletin Board. Congrats on the purchase of your car!

Tks also for updating your membership details with your car details and loading the pic. The car looks good already and it's a lovely colour.

I hope you enjoy the car. They are great vehicles!

Matt - welcome to the forum. Congratulations on your new car. I sold my X350 recently and I'm still in mourning so very envious of your XJR! :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
I hope you can come along to our Kemble meeting. It's nothing very formal - we just have a good breakfast, a gossip and look under a few bonnets.

Thanks for the warm welcome everyone, and yes, I'll be there on the 30th of May, sounds ideal.

By then I should have my car back from Tom Lenthall with new rear pads and discs, the brake calipers refurbished and the gearbox serviced, a few ticks on the to-do list!

Thanks Barry, I'll be posting in a few categories soon.

I've just added the breakfast meet to the calendar, last Saturday at Kemble, what sort of time do you all meet?

Every region is different, the Solway group meets on the first Tuesday in the month at a friendly local pub. Sometimes informal chats, sometimes guest speakers. Organize whatever takes your fancy.
