- Tips for driving and etiquette whilst driving a hired Jag XJS
Further to my previous post about owning an XJS, I decided to try one out. I’ve hired a V12 convertible for my birthday weekend in February. I’ve booked me and Mrs.S into a posh hotel in the Dales to make it a reet posh do.
Any tips on driving a 5.3 litre V12 would be appreciated and also any advice on etiquette would be nice. As a working class northern bloke, do I dress casually or don a Jaegar sweater and some natty slacks?Posted 4 years agoseaversMember
Jaegar sweater and some natty slacks
This sounds about right but be sure to wear the sweater over your shoulders and tied at the front in a nice bow. I would also recommend driving gloves and a tweed flat cap. Also be sure to have the top down what ever the weather and have some appropriate music playing as you waft through the small towns and villages.Posted 4 years ago

I’m afraid that your seriously considering a Jag moves you into John Prescott territory – you may think of yourself as “working class”, but you’d be wrong. Perhaps a blazer, cravat and a flat cap?

I believe that was when he was serving in the Royal Navy. About the only time that it’s acceptable.
A gentleman may sport a beard, to say otherwise makes me suspect that perhaps your own efforts on that behalf have been a little, how shall we say, unsuccessful? Scraggly?Posted 4 years agoRusty SpannerSubscriber
