<IMG SRC="http://izzyshouse.simplenet.com/cars/jaguar/2002/x-type-3.jpg"> <P>Is it just me, or does this look strikingly similar to the current XJ series? Any ideas on how the AWD system will be set up? If Jag/Ford price this one right it could prove to be the good competition for the new A4 3.0, BMW 330xi, and AWD S60 if Volvo releases one. The engine, as of now, is set to be the 3.0 litre 215hp plant from the S-type and Lincoln LS V6. Thoughts, anyone?<P>

I didn't know they were to be AWD. Cool.<P>I like the design if they could <B>GET RID OF THE 5 MPH BUMPER!</B> That Jag with a shark nose (ala BMW 6 series) would be very nice.<P>

Actually, I've heard it is to be a compact. Though it looks much bigger from this photo. If you look at the trunk, the idea of it being a small car is more plausible.<P>Happy driving.<P>

Oh, those cheap things. I tried those in my Gates (lear jet), last week. Not supportive enough while ditching it in Aruba. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/wink.gif">

What do you reccomend? I tried a diamond-studded seat out (500,000 kt total weight), but it was a little rough for the long haul. <P> <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/wink.gif">

I found that a custom engineered zero-gravity chamber was the best option. However the diamond studded seats were close to perfect. They are a bit abrasive at times, though. BTW, have you joined the new planet club yet? I just bought Mercury. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/wink.gif"> Figured I would start off small and work my way up. Maybe the sun will be next, once my next deal with the UN clears that is. Still trying to sell the Americas. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif">

I'm ready when you are. I hear that there is a special going on now too. Something like if we buy before Christmas they will throw in a 3rd world country.

Ethiopia!? I am looking for some kind of ROI. Something in the Slavic speaking nations would be better I think. After all, their women are much better looking and there are fewer flies buzzing about. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif">

Since my girl is from Bulgaria, I guess it would only be right if I got that country. Although, it is not really a 3rd world country. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/wink.gif"> BTW, got to drive my 850 in the snow for the first time, mmmmm fun.

What?? You drove it in the snow??? Don't you have an X5 or some sort of over-priced Range Rover for that??? When it snows, I usually just pay some local peasants to go and clean the roads with blow dryers. I don't want to get any sort of moisture on my solid-gold floor mats.

Well, actually I had to drive it in the snow to keep the economy good. See everyone else here thought that because there is snow on the ground that they did not have to work. So as royalty I had to set an example. But once I was finished, I had to take a nap. The whole doing something for your self thing really drained me. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif"> Cool part is, when I woke up from my nap, I was in my jet landing at my palace in the Bahamas. Catch you all on the flip side. Have a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/wink.gif"><BR>Prospero
