Summary:

This car doesn't need to prove anything!

Faults:

Steering problem. - Fixed with new set of tires.

General Comments:

This is my first Cat. (Jag)

Will certainly buy some more. Different, Stunning!

Mind blowing performance, but discreet.

Sound system can be better. (I am used to Volvo sound systems{Pro-logic}

The CAT is as solid as can be!

Handles South African roads well.

It's a big car, but whilst driving it shrinks and do whatever I want with no hesitation.

My age? 27

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

You think the sound system could be better? and your used to volvo pro-logic?

I used to have a Volvo and the sound system was also pro-logic whilst it is OK it is nothing special and not particularly powerful.

My friend owns an xjr and the sound system is streets ahead in terms of quality and power.
