Photos of the Jag don't do it justice. Awesome looking (and driving) car.Sorry, but I just can't get excited about Toyota or Nissan cars. Impressions are definitely personal, but I'll take a Jag any day. In fact, I just bought a new XF. Awesome, awesome car. Also nice not to see yourself coming and going every 2-3 miles down the road.To each their own, but I've wanted a Jag since I bought my first MGB in 1972. Odd, I guess, in that the two MG's I owned, I never had any problems - period.Maybe I'm just lucky.I will say that I would be willing to put up with some foibles for the sake of class, and few other cars have the class of a Jaguar, in my opinion.
