Go for it. Very nice. So what it's an extra wedge, is it such a big deal when you factor the likely vehicle life, humongous smile factor and that even with depreciation you're still likely to get more back long term than you would with a Frod. Overall the value equation has a lot more than just numbers in it. An 18 month old Jag straight from the stealership is a new motor.

About the only thing to fear is it will spoil you for the future. Going back to anything more mundane will be hard.

IMO it hardly makes you take a second look and will be absorbed by every other medium size SUV on the roads here....

Well, I'm with you... it's basically a QX70 but with a less reliable set up.

Each to their own isn't it. I really like the new lines of Jags (by new I mean recent years). I think the F-Pace is a good looking car, it's only downside in my eyes is it's not bigger, but such is.

Never made my mind up on the QX70. Funny looking things, but a mate had one and it was rapid.
How's the pricey Durango?

Awesome. It's always nice to hear someone enjoying a new toy.

Only thing I didn't go and look at was the GMC / Chevvy / Cadillac type motors because I knew I'd buy an Escalade being the OG I am.

The danger I have is the pick up trucks.

I went to the Jeep dealership and started looking at various motors. The Jeep's are all awful (apart from the SRT) and then almost ended up in some shit pick up truck, maybe next time.

The issue I have with the SRT is where I go from here.
