That's great... highly doubt it is real.

I know in Canada at least, they'll never show another brand in a BMW ad. We had discussions about that Cadillac ad where the STS was chasing european cars (5er, benz, etc.) around a ballroom.

The head of Marketing said that by showing the BMW and MB, they were admitting that those are the better cars that Cadillac is trying to base themselves on.

I like it, but agree that BMW wouldn't put a competitor in the ad, dangerous move.

Justin, of course not, you of all people know the brakes on jag's suck, and it would've reamed into the front of that bmw.

The Ford Jags are MUCH more reliable than the pre-Ford ones. Reliability isn't their issue; devaluing their brand by using a rebadged Ford as the X Type is. Sharing parts between the S Type and Lincoln LS was passable but the X Type fiasco really hurt their image.

Jags have went down so much in every department, feel so bad for them. Ford sucks.

Correct. Germans actually rated Jaguar #1.. even above their own BMW, and Porsche...

Disagree. I'd rock this with tinted windows, or in pearl white.

The new XK is supposed to be a fantastic sports car, much improved over it's predecessor.

ok, I admit, my answer was too general. SOME Jaguars are ugly. To me, at least.

Some are quite hot:
The old e type coupes reminded me of Datsun 240z and 280z's

Or this:

I'd rock an XJ 220 in a second. Reminds me of a Saleen.


And, like europrince said, the new XK

20inch Sepang 15 spoke wheels on an XJ make me fap quicker.
