    I think you got them backwards. The XTS is the full sized all wheel drive sedan. The ATS is the Buick based ride.
    You obviously haven't driven the Regal T-Type. Pretty solid platform and for a fuel efficient platform, can actually handle and perform rather well.

    Bear in mind that the CTS-V Sedan is still the fastest production sedan in the world (At least around the 'ring). It matches the higher horsepower S8 0-60 and its suspension and brakes are right up there with the best of them being made by Brembo and all.
    But you are right...they are still using pushrod engines. Sort of like Harley Davidson sticking with 1903 technology and adding fuel injection.

    I too have had several Cadillacs as well as a Pontiac G8 GXP (LOVED this car but it wasn't worth it in the end) and 2 Pontiac Bonneville GXPs (Northstar based cars). None of them would even compete with the M5s, B7s, E64s, S8s of the world. But they have their advantages that make them a decent value for those who can't pay the premium for the best of the best.

It's just too big and Cadillac is way too far behind in the big luxo-sedan world. They still call themselves the standard of the world, but haven't actually earned that title in decades. I've owned multiple Cadillacs since 16 and the only cars that impress me are the CTS-V (speed), and ATS (handling). My CTS was nice but we're talking big luxo sedans here. The A8 looks awesome and I'd take it any day.

    The S550 is a great car and I do enjoy driving it. It's nothing short of amazing. Massage seats work great and comfort is really enjoyable. I have mine set up on a nice set of wheels and it still performs well. Maintenance wise no big issues yet, minus a relay that I was over charged for here, but that's expected in this place. I order any parts I need from MB USA now.

    I was just looking at other options and the styling of the XJ just hit me as a very appealing machine. I will be shopping soon, and just wanted to see what would be a good upgrade. I've never been in an Audi but will look.

    Audi S5's are pretty damn sexy. I'm pleased with my S4 so far. Lots of zip hidden in a 4 door beauty, and the supercharged 6 just sings.

That was to replace a blown valve on an'88 at 187k on the clock. Tha other two were a 92, and a 2000, both served proudly to more than 200k and still going strong. The breed is a wonderful machine, and is unique among all other cars I have ever owned. You truly feel that the car and those that built her cared as much for the driver as they did about breathing life into these machines. Sir William Lyons believed that the automobile was as close as mankind would come to creating something that was truly alive. His purpose was to give them a soul. You only need to drive on to feel that connection.

    As far as ownership goes... Yes, they are owned by Tata, an Indian firm, but they are still an English company and still built at Castle Bromwich. The only way Jaguar has ever tolerated foreign ownership is if the guys on the line can build true and "proper" Jaguars, so Tata has wisely continued to let the paychecks flow but otherwise has taken a very "hands-off" approach to those stewardship.

    For the dollar, Jaguar builds the finest cars on planet earth IMHO. I currently own a Mercedes, and have driven BMW and the Jag still has my heart. After we pay off the current Benz. There will be another big cat inky driveway for sure.
    I am sorry i guess i should have said that i currently own an xjr2000 and have owned a 4.2 s type before saying that i beleive that mercedes bmw or my recommendation which is audi would be a better choice based on the current market. I do not relate quality to being owned by tata, which also owns range rover by the way and those are still considered the best suv in the world. But i do beleive that jaguar have shown quality issues prior and while being owned by ford. Do not get me wrong very nice car when everything is working but big pain in the a.. When not

    Another issue is resale value but that is a conversation for another topic. I keep my recommendation audi s8 ultra fast all wheel drive new model instead of mid life for jag xj so it will not change in three years.

    Many choices all nice good luck

    I wouldn't live there for any car/money/job. I detest their culture for the most part.

    Buy a fully restored XK140....then you'll have a sweet Jag.

    I enjoyed my few weeks in the Philippines. If you can get past the constant oppressive humidity, it's actually a really fun place to be. Got to spend a weekend in Boracay, which had some of the most amazing beaches I've ever seen. Enjoy it while you can bro!
