Hi from a new F Type owner

Post by 8003px » Sun Jan 13, 2019 10:53 am

Hi all, quick hello from a proud new F Type owner.
I'm Mark from Leicestershire in the UK , purchased my V8 yesterday and am eagerly awaiting collection on the 17th.
This is the latest in a long list of weekend toys but my first Jag after many years of Toyota Supra's, Mercedes SL55 AMG's, Mercedes SL63 Amg's, Aston Martin Vantage's, Porsches etc.
Looking forward to using the car for weekend blasts, car events/meets and drives into Europe for the mountain passes/holidays etc.

Nice. Welcome to the club! I bet the 17th seems a long way in the future. ;)

Welcome to the fold Mark...time to get busy eradicating the chrome and wrap the skirts and front winglets Black!
Bet colour combo BTW :-)

That's a very early AWD 2014...I bought ours new in May 2015 and I'm pretty sure AWD's weren't around then?

Here's one I made earlier ;-)

100% Correct.

However this is an early one. Manufactured 10th Dec 2014 as a MY16.

Congratulations ... would be interested to hear your thoughts after a few smiles of motoring comparing back against your previous weekend delights ...
