The all aluminium XJ is the choice of many a Prime Minister and a favourite of the royals. It is my favourite Jag and has been for 4 decades, not just because it is luxurious and expensive, but because it drives like it looks. The XJ doesn’t just waft, it prowls. Our car costs a princely $305,995 plus on-roads. The [...]

Infiniti’s mighty fine Q50

Infiniti has been around for a long time, but like Toyota’s LEXUS, has low sales figures. What is bad news for the car maker is very good news for those of us who like something with an air of exclusivity about it. I’ll be honest: I once detested Infiniti styling. There, I’ve said it. But, not any more. I once [...]

How Run Flat tyres almost ruined our weekend

For many years, I’ve been saying to anyone who’ll listen, that each and every car on the road needs a spare. A space-saver will do, but a full-sized wheel is best, and the longer the road, the more necessary it is. Over the years many cars have let me down, not because they broke down, that one expects, but because [...]

Hover Mouse for details   The Utterly Delicious BMW 430i GranCoupe The 430i highlights the confusing nomenclatures the Germans have inflicted on buyers over the last decade. The “even” numbers signified 2 door coupes, so when the 2, 4 and 6 series came out, they only had too doors. However, that shipped has sailed. There is now 4 and 6 [...]

Jaguar’s Big, Bold and Beautiful XJ Saloon is More than the Sum of its Parts

By |2017-03-10T14:19:34+10:00August 23rd, 2016|Bowral, Executive Saloons, Jaguar|

  Jaguar started life as the Swallow Sidecar Company, and was known as SS. SS became rather unpopular during the late 30’s for obvious reasons, so the name Jaguar was adopted and soon became synonymous with British motoring luxury. The XJ is the official car of the British royal family, and the British PM so, it is dead posh. The [...]

    I was talking to a salesman the other day. He told me serious off-roaders probably wouldn’t buy Range Rovers, or Discoveries, or even Toyota LandCruiser 200’s. He hinted these vehicles cost far too much bash about on rocks. A few hundred metres of gravel is about as much as most of them will ever be required to cope [...]

Do you remember the VW Passat we had about 6 months ago? We liked is a lot and when given the chance for another Passat we jumped at it. 6 Months down the track you’ll be surprised to hear we still love it. It still feels refined to drive, elegant to look at, and divine to sit in.HERE'S THE PREVIOUS [...]
