    BMW M6 vs Jaguar XKR

    I like the XKR a lot. Why is it that I don't see much of it? Is there any tunes or upgraded superchargers for the XKR? What are your thoughts on the XKR? I cant find a better match for the BMW M6 than the XKR yet I don't find a head to head comparo/test. The XKR is one of the most underrated sports car in the US in my opinion.

    I looked hard at the XKR, you can find some amazing deals on ebay for the supercharged version and it's fast. I drove one, but the steering is way too mushy...the interior is super nice. The convertible is to die for, imo.

    It (kind of) reminds me of an Aston Martin...

    I see a lot of XKR's here in Miami. The convertible XKR in black looks sick. I prefer the coupe though.

    The XKR is an awesome car and the new 5.0 liter motor has yet to see big aftermarket development. It is a softer car though than the M6 with not as much involvement. Awesome, awesome car though.

    how the $#@! does he even mention it in the same sentence as a GT3, ill hope he meant turbo. Seems like a great car, but Jags have always been soft, soft steering, soft suspension etc...

    Jags have their own style and are a lot of fun. My parents had an XJ8 back in the day when I first got my license. The $#@! I did with that car... a lot of fun to drive.

    Maybe it's because you arrive in a GT3? Heh, some dealers know me and don't question me either.

    Some people live long, meaningful lives.

    Other people eat shit and die.

    I'm not racist, I hate everybody equally; especially fat people.
