Hi all,

I have ordered the following XE today....

  • XE Prestige
  • 180hp Diesel Automatic gear
  • Ammonite Grey
  • Panoramic sunroof
  • Teinted windows
  • Oyster seats
  • Business pack
  • Winter pack
  • Chrome grill
  • Extra set wheels (5 star)

At the moment I'm driving a Merc C Coupe and looking forward to my new XE... (april/may/june?).... My first and last British car was the Rover 618i...

Cheers,
Marc.

Welcome Marc and congrats on the order! Ammonite Grey is being strongly considered in my camp as well!
I think it looks fab on the pictures! Especially with the all chrome grill...

A special luxury event? Can you give some more details on this? What exactly is going on and where is it being held?

From december 11th to 15th the Masters of LXRY show is held in Amsterdam. JLR has a big presence at the show. During previous shows the F-type was presented. This year JLR will introduce the New Discover Sport and the XE.

The Discovery sport is quite impressive, even more so when you consider it's price and how it fits into the whole SUV eco-system

UPDATE

* car built on May 4th
* expected dealer delivery is first week of June
* expected delivery to me is on hold till June 18th because of official Dutch introduction date.

Took the chance to change my Venom alloys (accessory) to Radiance Black. Why? Because the privacy glass seems very dark and gives the XE Prestige a more aggressive look. According to my wife :) they need more aggressive alloys to match them...

Original order (color + alloys):

The color is awesome. I think generally Jaguar has done a great job with all the colors it is offering on the XE.

The rims wyou licked out are nice, but I have to say that I prefer the ones in the first picture you posted. They look more aggressive to me.

Marc,

I ordered the Venom alloys myself but frankly speaking I really, really like the Radiance Black but as I ordered a black car with black package
I was a bit chicken to order the Randiance Black. After all it's a company car

Wow! Good decision to change the rims. The colors fit perfectly together this way!

You're almost there! Just a few more days :)

Thanx! My wife saw the picture of an ammonite grey with the very dark privacy glass & Venom wheels and immediately suggested to change the rims to something more aggresive. And she was right >:D

Jaguar NL called today.... delivery around June 18th...
