This one IS a keeper!

Postby ianoliver57 » Mon Jul 03, 2017 6:42 pm

Evening all. I'm back on a new forum. After a trip through Jaguar with an S Type, 3 XF's and an XKR, (in 6 years) I've finally managed to reach an F Type!
Just ordered an new F Type, hoping to take delivery on Friday next. It's an F Type coupe 340 V6 Auto 17 MY. Fuji white, Pimento leather upholstery, power fold mirrors, performance seats, rear view camera, 19 inch orbit alloys, heated front screen, keyless entry, switchable active sports exhaust, premier leather interior and incontrol secure (jaguars factory fitted satellite tracker). Budget ran out at that.!!
This one will be a keeper for sure. But then I said that about the previous 5. Since this will be my sixth Jag in six years, it better be a keeper!!.
Sorry I didnt make it to Scottish Jaguar Day at the weekend, but hope to catchup with some of you at future events.

Happy motoring, happy days.

Regards Ian.

You are lucky to have had a sunny day on the second. It was pouring here , Argyll, hence why I didn't go for a 4 hour round trip! What average mileage are you achieving in the F type? Hope it's dry on Friday when I pick it up! Looking forward to driving home the long way round. Regards. Ian.

Thought it was time I tried to upload some pics of the car. Never tried this before so it may all go horribly wrong. Picked it up on 7th July and now have just over 1400 on the clock. Trying to have it run in before the end of the month, then get the oil and filter changed before the real bad weather comes in! Overall average is 32.8. Not bad at all. Regards. Ian. Ok, so I thought it may go wrong. Each time I try to attach, system says error, file too large! How do I get round that?

Try again having used shrinkpictures.com not sure if it saved the new image. Instructions say to right click and save as. Unfortunately, I can't right click on my I pad! Here goes.

Yeeeee Haaaaa! It works! Only problem is that the saved image after shrinking looks just like the original ushrunk pic. Saving does not give the option to rename for future I'd purposes on my I pad. Thanks for the help Mike. Regards. Ian.

There's no doubt, the coupe in particular does look good. Enjoy! Mike.
