@paddyirishman great cars and surprising reliable from a gearbox and engine perspective. That's the facelift model so it will have the 8 speed zf box which is meant to be better/bombproof than the 6 speed mine had.

Definitely do a gearbox flush and adaptions reset on that one as it's over 65k which is when the owners club recommend changing out the gearbox oil etc.

Power is just insane, I ran a Viezu v switch tune which on paper takes it from 510 to 560 with no supporting mods.

I would recommend an exhaust system as they are quite tame sounding in stock form. I also added an X pipe as it made more power apparently and made the sound even better.

Mpg wise I was getting on average for the daily commute around 19/20mpg.

Servicing etc I used Jaguar Approved garage up at Stephen Groves in Hillsborough. Great guy and a wealth of jaguar knowledge.

Just the usual stuff like brakes, tyres and also suspension components can fail and be pricey but all in all euro car parts can usually help lol
