Just picked up a new '04 XJR last week. A lot different from my '99. The jury is still out.

Seems smoother and quieter than my '99. Haven't really driven it hard yet and it does feel bigger but the handling seems better probably due to the 20" tires. Biggest getting used to is the gas filler not being up on the trunk. Sometimes I feel like I'm filling up my Expedition instead of a XJR.

it is very fast, and everyone seems to wonder how i can get to 70 so fast, as it is very smooth gettin to a high speed. if you kick down the engine, it does roar and the car handles well getting up to 80 easily.
inside the leather is very soft. fit and finish is amazing. everything you touch feels great.
the steering wheel is a bit easy to turn, too easy i think.
the problem i have is getting in and out, the door opening is not big enough. and getting out either i hit the pillar or getting in i hit the top of the door. the interior is a bit small . i guess cosey is the right word.
