    I hear those stories about the regular XJ8s but not so much about the XJR or XJ Supercharged Vanden Plas (Super V8 ; like this one).

    I'll take my chances.

    He was really looking at Mercedes for the longest, he just happened to see this one and the price was fantastic for what we're getting.

    18k for THE MOTHERFUCKING WIN (Retail : 33k)
    In fact, they made a mistake and were trying to sell it for 22k but the salesguy told my dad 18k, so we took it.
