Cool Life after the base G8 --update

Hey guys. I have been G8-less for about 4 months and thought I'd just come back with a little update. I was a base G8 owner so to go up to a 5.0 V8 (385 hp) in my Jag has been a nice treat. Still waiting for the day when I can race a G8 GT i'd be curious to see how i'd do.
Not a single car here in Utah yet has been ballsy enough to race me but Utahns in general drive crappy cars.

I sold my G8 to someone local, and almost every one of my friends and coworkers have told me they've spotted my exact G8...and then sure enough I spotted him as well on the freeway. So the guy who bought it is definitely putting miles on it!

Just a couple photos here of my current ride

Hey nice Jag. That was one 4 door sedan that I was considering before I bought my G8 but I didn't like the interiors and I was too scared of maintenance costs haha

THANKS! Yeah I wasn't even considering the 2011 or older XF' 2012 along with a refreshed exterior, they got all new seats, new leather packages, and the XF got an all new steering wheel. They also updated the touch screen/electronics interface for navigation, etc so it works smoother. Also, the XF has had the 09, 10, and '11 model years to figure out bugs so I was hoping the 4th model year into the run they'll have worked out some of the reliability bugs and issues! No problems so far, but I've only driven it about 2,500 miles...wish me luck!

Sounds like you miss your g8 quite a bit.
