[s-type] Hello from Stratford-upon-Avon

Morning all. Just moved over from the X300 forum having run an X308
XJR for two years and a 3.6 manual XJ-S for eight years before
that. Having spent �15,000 on petrol in that time (not counting
main dealer service, tyres and depreciation, my beloved XJR had to
go.

Test drove a diesel S-Type Sport last Tuesday, bought it on
Thursday, collected it on Saturday. Ex-demonstrator, registered to
Jaguar, four months old, 1,300 on the clock. Six speed manual, all
toys apart from satnav.
Out handles the XJR in all respects apart from acceleration.
Returning 40mpg on my 190 mile daily round trip to work compared to
the XJR’s 19mpg. Averaging 1,000 miles a week, so if anything’s
going to break, I’ll break it.

First question: anyone have the 2004 MY premium sound system? Mine
sounds like crap compared with the XJR. Are they all useless or is
mine broken? (Still have 32 months of warranty left…)

cheers–
