    It's not that light. We're speaking about a 1750kg executive saloon, with an engine that's not exactly cutting edge and an automatic. Considering that with my driving the Mini is already at 10-11l/100km (24-21mpg), it's normal that the Jag is turning that sort of figures.

    i suspect it tempts you to drive it in a non-economic way all too often
    Well it already has 12.000km, so I guess it's been already run in. Altough the non-economic driving temptation is there alright...

    I think I confused it with the old XJ that was all aluminum.
    Jag needs to start offering manuals again. Manuals can be luxurious with a little work, just make the gearchange extremely slick and make the clutch nice and light.
    "Kimi, can you improve on your [race] finish?"
    "No. My Finnish is fine; I am from Finland. Do you have any water?"

    I personally think that a gear lever and three pedals would suit this car a lot.
