The great XE in the color I ordered. This is a Portfolio edition with 25t engine. My car will be the Prestige with a 20d engine, so without the great exhausts. Interior color will be the same but in Taurus leather.

Do you have a delivery date? I was looking at the options on the uk build site and was surprised at the number of things that one could purchase. Do you have a list of the packages or options you took?

Hi Rawcpoppa, my configuration:

180hp Diesel, automatic transmission
Prestige edition
Ammonite Grey
Teint (dark) windows
Panoramic sunroof
Oyster interior
Business pack (navigation, etc.)
Winter pack (Xenon, heated chairs)
Extra: full chrome grille
Extra: set 18" 5 star diamond wheels (I use the default 17" for my winter tires)

Dealer says that the expected delivery date is July 1st, or a few months earlier :) They have no clue at the moment.

Cheers.
Marc.

The coloring looks amazing in these photos but I don't think that's a very accurate representation of what these colors will look like in real life. They just aren't that reflective in my experience and I also think that there is a filter going on.

It's not and very few pictures out there will give you a true look at what the paint really looks like, seeing it in person is the best way to judge.

You can just tell that these ones are retouched and altered. Its not how these cars look when the light hits them at a certain angle, it is instead a way that these cars just never actually look.

Yeah that's right, which also goes to show that retouching photo's not always does what's best.

do you guys think there will be any chance of us getting a first look at them before we even take delivery? ... like during some jaguar city-to-city tour, dealer demo's, etc?

The XE will be shown (together with Land Rover's new Discovery Sport) at the Masters of LXRY fair in Amsterdam december 11th-15th. At saturday the 13th JLR will host a special introduction evening.

So for The Netherlands that will be the first opportunity to see the XE in the flesh.

So are you planning on attending this event? Sounds like you are in the know.

Yes, my dealer told me to expect an invitation. If I attend the event I'll shoot some photos and post them here!

awesome.
this could very well be just one of those dealer events where anyone can show up, i'm sure there will be more across the nation and internationally.
