You should buy the one that gives you best value for money and also the most luxurious. With its styling, Jaguar can easily blow its class competitors out of water. It gives a jaguar look with its sleek lines along its length that matches in the front end with curves down to the menacing grill. Its quality is never compromising, with its innovative interiors. The lights inside put it class apart among the rivals and they seem to get lost in the dark. Quality of Jaguar’s engines have been improved which maintains the potency, by not avoiding the feel and comfort level.

The options listed at the end of the article were a wonderful reminder to me of why I'm simply not a prospective Porsche buyer.  Just a couple:
Painted car key- $335
5-mm wheel spacers- $500
What kind of tool pays $335 extra for a key that's been painted?  Or who pays $500 for 4 round shims that are less than 1/4 inch thick?  When I conjure a typical Porsche owner, the image it evokes is a guy in plaid golf slacks and tasseled loafers... a real "sport" who isn't even aware of all the people snickering behind him as he's ripped off... right and left. Sure, Porsche makes very good cars.  But brush away the pixie dust, and there are other, perhaps better choices for most of us, that give the same or better level of performance @ far better value, without making us look foolish.

Put this engine in my CX9 and I would never leave Mazda. Not going anywhere anyway but just saying.
