  • Every Jaguar needs a Parts car. They look beautiful...but reliability and re-sale value is horrible. I guess that's the case with most Luxury cars except Lexus. Jaguar is probably has the worse resale value though.

    Kalid De DudeKalid De DudePrieš metus
    • if 215/255 is the width then 215 gives you less grip, if it's the height your speedometer accuracy gets thrown off, your top speed is a bit lower, but your acceleration is a bit better
