I traded a bank check for some paperwork to a 2017 Jaguar XE 25t this morning. I spotted this black cat parked for sale over the weekend, and the kitty followed me home.

It’s a one owner car with 52k and all records of dealer service since new. Black and tan interior. I paid $17k for it. It was owned by a lady who owns a cosmetology school in town who was very emotionally involved with her Jag. She had been trying to sell it for some time, but pulled it off the market every time someone made an offer on it. It turns out she’s in the middle of selling one commercial building and buying another, so both her accountant and her husband said she had sell it if I made an offer. She was sad to part with it, but she did fill up the fuel tank for me before we met this morning. This is the kind of owner I like to buy used cars from.

They’ll be more Jaag content to come, but suffice to say this will make a good driving to work car paired with the Pajero for fun. I saw this car and ended up having my jimmies rustled by a car I didn’t expect to do so. I just thought it would be an interesting test drive with little intention of buying the car. The driving experience and handling won me over. Torque vectoring rear differentials do the good magic.

The car still has 8k left on the bumper to bumper warranty, and 28k left on the powertrain warranty, so I’ve got some time to learn how I feel about running a car built by blokes. This also means the sportstruck is for sale, as my driveway is at critical mass. I’ll Svend the F-150 this weekend and get it listed.
