    One response I will react to - the 1960s York stone on the front is being rendered over in the Spring as it is pretty hideous.

    You are more than welcome to come and take it back.

    Most of it comes from India anyway.

    I know these things.

    Before BMW lost the plot a 328i had a 6 cylinder engine. Then, when they realised that they couldn't get close to the fuel consumption of the vastly superior diesel models, they decided to fit a 2 litre 4 cylinder petrol engine out of a leaf blower. In order that it could overtake a milk float in the high street they then had to fit a turbo. I hope you've gone for the suspension upgrade so at least you will be comfortable while you're waiting for it to get up to motorway cruising speed.

    Jaguar XF Sportbrake. More space, more comfortable, vastly superior 6 cylinder diesel engine and, most importantly, infinitely more class. And it won't get delivered with the boot badge fitted upside down.

    High up on the Umbrail pass enroute to the Stelvio pass earlier today I encountered a dreamer in a beemer. I was going up, he was coming down, therefore he had to reverse up as there was a wider part a hundred yards behind him. There was barely enough room for 2 normal sized cars let alone my 4 tonne breeze block @2.2m wide plus mirrors. It took him several attempts to find his way back up the hill, zig meets zag, n/s/r bumper took a hit when zag should have zigged. I didn’t snigger until I’d safely got past him. How is it people are allowed to drive when the basics haven’t been learnt?

    I encountered many Porsches today as well going up the pass. Do you know, despite their supposed speed and handling, none of them were able to get past me

    Assumptions assumptions....it wasn't delivered with the badge upside down. In fairness @ianrobbo1 went down that route as well....

    In fairness I do rate the XFf, it was on my shortlist of two. Lack of rear legroom and the absence at the time of a decent petrol engine option (other than the crazy 500bhp :sisi2:) version killed it. But if I had specifically wanted an Indian car I would have gone for it.:cool:

    So if it wasn't delivered with the badge upside down its already starting to fall to bits as expected :p

    And re the title just one word should cover it ...... Krupp :D

    Bless. You think the chicken jalfrezi down your local takeaway is actually made in India too?

    andyBeaker Moderator Staff Member Moderator Club Sponsor

    Wouldn't know. However, it probably all comes from the same factory as Chinese takeaways do which is located in the steamy sub continent location of just at the South end of The Blackwell Tunnel. Once seen, never forgotten....

    Hence All currys in this house are strictly home made.

    On that we can agree. Nothing worse than a plate of monosodium glutamate with pilau rice.
