Buying experience

4 out of 5

Type of dealer you bought from?

Did you buy this car new?

What price did you pay?

When did you buy the car?
May 2012

Did you get a good deal and why?
Significantly less than list price and included some optional extras.

Is there any special reason why you bought this car?
I previously owned a "luxury" specification model and wanted to experience ownership of the top specification variant.

What was the dealer like?
Offered a Jaguar track experience day for my wife and I as a deal clincher (although when I later enquired when we could attend I was told that the experience was for one of us). Disappointing, because we had already forged a relationship with the staff following our previous purchase and were surprised that they had reneged on our (verbal) agreement.

Driving it
