Thanks, Adrian. I've currently got this thing for quiet cars but I want
something newer than a five year old XJ8 that my sub £10K budget will
buy me. C5 looks like a serious contender. Do all facelift c5
exclusives (or autos at least) include cruise control? What are they
like for leg and headroom?
Had one before and I hanker after another, although I'm not keen on
spending as much money this time around.
Really? Magic carpet ride, quiet at speed? Comfy seats? It all depends
what one wants from a car. This will be my commuter car so I want
something relaxing, but I also want something I can like, which leaves
out pretty much everything that isn't from Britain, France or Italy.
On the subject of Italy, I noticed that Autocar's review of the 156
quoted just 66dB at 70mph - that's almost as quiet as a RR Phantom and
much less than an S-Class Mercedes. Typing error do you reckon? I may
have to investigate!
