Arrow SO I FINALLY GOT A NEW CAR A JAGUAR S-TYPE R WHAT A BEAST 400hp THIS CAR IS AMAZING !

I sold my C230, and my CLK320 Drop I owned for less then 2 months. So I picked me up a 2003 Jaguar S-Type R with 66K miles, Black Metalic, Cream Interior, Bi-Xenons, Parktronic, Brembo Brakes,Touch Screen DVD Navi and with Jaguar Select Edition Warranty til 10/30/08, for $16500 Out The Door that including Taxes too. I wouldnt buy one of these cars without the warranty period. This car is really fast. Its a V8 Supercharged 400 HP car. I just love the supercharger screaming when taking off its like a jet almost.The best thing about this car is people looking at it. I called the dealer and they said its a rare car, and they only seen 2 in my area. I like the DVD Navi bc it talks to you too. Much better system than Benz navigation which is non touch screen. It will take me some time getting use to my new Jag, since I a Benz guy and thats all I ever drive. Im only 22 btw. The car is really cool, the downside is the MPGs. I get 25-26 hwy, 17-18 city. Much less comming from a C230. Other than that this car is sick, and extremely rare more rare than AMG or M3. Dealer says they only seen 2 of them. I will post pics in the morning. This car is amazing, best bang for the price.


Here some pics from tonight will take better pics in morning. My car is like a dark grey, bluish,black metalic color. It depends on the lighting.

R the Most Important Letter For Jaguar

awesome ride man,
But with that price I'd be a little suspicious about the car. Did u have Jaguar check the inside and out to see if everything is OK? its either something is wrong with the car or Jags have a horrible depreciation.
enjoy the supercharged monster

I got the car for Manhiem Wholesale Price $16500 is correct price. But I got it with taxes included. The car is clean, Jaguar did everything to the car all service records too. Its a Jaguar Certified Select Edition 100K Mile Warranty also. I actually got the car for like $15700 if you look at it. But $16500 with tax,reg,fees nothing more than that.

Not to mention. But I can get an ECU and a Pully for about $1500 HP will increase to 500HP 0-60 in 4.3 secs. If I go with Arden Jags other tuner setup, I can go 0-60 in 4 secs. Arden is more expensive though. These are some mods under consideration for this ride. These cars are really fast. A bimmer thought he could race me tonite, i smoked him a new backside he had a 330i, he probaly didnt know what an R is.

Not only is this car fast, but have better options, more technology then some of the newer cars today. Its pretty advanced for its time. Just like the 93 Jag XJ220 which can smoke ferraris, lambos,zondas today and that was a Twin Turbo V6. The S-Type R in my opinion is the best bang for the dollar used car wise period.

My old C230 was modded exterior/interior wise. No performace mods. CLK320 Drop was stock and slow, thats why I got rid of it in less than 2 months.

judging from your post count, your screen name, let me kindly say,

stfu and leave this forums until you have anything even relates to E9X bimmer's...

Jags loses like 65% of its value in the first three years, and theres a reason for it... From what i remember, it scores poor on side impact collison. Its a Ford, enjoy some of the electronics breaking, etc.

I dont care if it has 400hp. Its a five year old car. If you wanted raw performance, buy a used evo or sti.

The car is definitely rare and theres a dam good reason why.....noone wanted it in the first place...

What C230 are you talking about? The sedan or the hatchback?

Stop Hating man. A Benz Depreciate 65% too, and a BMW. Im trying to see if some e90's 335s want to race so I can smoke them. I gonna take some M3s out too. I hear the 335 turbo is sick. Thats all. Jags has better reliability than BMW, and Mercedes check the JD Powers Report son. My c230 was in and out the shop for the longest. Old Jags from 70's and 80s were problems. When Ford Stepped in reliability is much better. Why you think cops drive Crown Vics ? Besides Jaguar is being sold along with Range Rover by the end of this year. They will be independent. Also remember Aston Martin was owned by Ford too. Tell Aston Martin owners that. I dare you wouldnt talk trash to them.

I had a coupe. The S-Type R has a special supercharger. The XKRs has the same one, which takes on Jags sister Aston Martin which does the same performance.
