The V8 is the way to go. You will love it. Enjoy!Just wanted to introduce myself here in the forum. I'm awaiting my 5.0 in 3-4 weeks as the dealer assured today. It's Rhodium-silver, black interior with silver panels. Just a few extras like 380 W soundsystem, rearcam, PDC, (front and rear), red brake (dealer gave it for free as i asked for it), heated sportsteering (loved that as i had a rental car in the holidays), heated performance-seats, memory-package for the seats, technology-package.
My car-history seriously began with a Golf GTI several years ago, then a BMW 330ci conv., short after a M3 conv. (Bought it the same colour than the 330ci so my parents did'nt notice the chance), then a Nissan GT-R with approx 600 hp. I sold the GTR as i did'nt used it that much, just about 6000-7000 km\year. After that i really missed the power in the other cars, i.e. a Mini Roadster JCW with 211 hp, and i LOVE convertibles, so it was quite reasonable to buy the 5.0...i think .
I went to a nearby dealer and just asked, and got i OK pricing for the Mini and (i think) a good price for a new 5.0 as the dealer nearly took of 10% off the price for the Jag.
I was the last monthes really wondering (when looking at a large market for used cars in not only Germany, but Europe) that there are only very very few F-types in silver.
Hope to learn a lot, some tricks, hints, and propably some help when needed
