The only part of the Jag purchase logic I see fault in is matching it with a driving shoe. Aren't driving shoes specifically designed to make operating the clutch easier, which all (US) XJs lack, seeing as they're automatic?
And, while I don't think the Jags made today are anywhere near as stylish as the ones made pre-1989 or 1995-2005, they are among the most stylish luxury saloons out there. Only three come to mind with more stylish lines, the Maserati Quatroporte, the Audi A/S8 and the Bentley Arnage. And of those, two are well beyond the pricepoint of the XJ. MB, BMW and Lexus may make a better car, but if you're going for pure style, it would be difficult to beat the Jaguar. The new XF, however, is a Taurus with a coke problem.
