IMO no car should be a garage queen. Cars were meant to drive and thats exactly what i would use it for. I'm not really hung up on this special edition xjr. I may pick up a regular xjr for 10k or less. From what i have read on jag boards these are reliable cars and are not that bad as people say.
I'm also looking at 03 540i, 04-05 a8. I want something bigger with some power. MPG is not a factor at the moment, because my work pays for all my gasoline lol.
Insurance is another factor. About a year ago, i remember reading an article where it stated that XJR is the least pulled over car in America. Under my name the insurance is 1800/year for full coverage. If i insure it under my company, it is only 622/year for full coverage
What would you guys buy instead? Sti's, evo's, m3s are out of the question due to the insurance costs.
