Greetings all.
Ordered my first Jag ever last week. Wanted one in the '50s ....( an XK120 would have been nice!), hope the wait is worthwile.
Spec'd a manual 2.0D 180ps in IRR, Latte seats with sunroof and 18" matrix wheels. Sat nav, (pricey option here), Lighting pack and a few other bits and pieces.
Delivery....Early 2016 ?

Hi John and Winger,
Yes, the dealer mentioned "late september" but reading other posts here and elsewhere it seems that 6 months is more likely. I will let you know when I get a firm build date.
I currently drive a 2006 407 Peugeot 1.8 Petrol (bought new) which was not a good choice in hindsight due to "post guarantee" reliability issues....
Can't wait....An extravagant purchase maybe, but I will save a lot on Road tax and fuel.! Irish diesel prices are about 12cent cheaper than petrol and the road tax on pre 2008 petrol vehicles is (for an 1800cc) currently 636 Euros as opposed to the 190 for a later 2l diesel.
Don't know if the dealers here are backlogged there are only 3 or 4, delivery estimate is based on what I read here and elsewhere....Late september would be great but I'm still wtg for build date. Will advise.
