XJR? Obviously, it is going to weight less than the NA spec XJR.

In North America, park distance control comes standard on the rear and I think the front of the car.

I don't understand why you think the Euro (UK) spec XJR would weigh any less than the NA spec one? As far as I know, equipment and therefore weights are pretty even worldwide. The only real difference is the way the extras are sold in the USA - as packages rather than single items. Anyhow, to answer your question... standard equipment on the XJR here (that would be optional on base models) is...

Sports Suspension
Brembo Brakes
De chrome exterior pack
Power Foldback Mirrors
Headlamp Power Wash
Bi Xenon Headlamps
Metalic Paint
19 inch alloys
R Interior Theme
Chrome sided gear knob
Rear window electric sunblind
Premium Sound

This all adds up to a kerb weight of 3671 lbs and a gross vehicle weight of 4960 lbs.

Rear park control has been standard on the entire range since the begining in the UK at least, but I thought worldwide.

relevant technologies. It doesn't have pointless gizmos that add weight.

I agree that it has relevant technologies, but the implementation of them is confused to say the least. I have much more detail about this here...

cars. It distracts the driver from driving.

I'd much rather have some calculator-like navigation system that I bring with me in the car and have it tell me the directions and stuff than have some screen right in the middle of a beautiful interior. I saw an infomerical on TV today for a hand-held navigation system about the size of a calculator for two payments of $19.95. 40 bucks or $1,000 car navigation system? I know which one I would get.

2004 is the first model year of the new X350 XJ. First year models nearly always have more problems than later model years.

navigation system?

I guess that depends on where you live. Obviously in remote parts of the USA where you drive 100 miles before coming to another road it is about as much use as a chocolate fireguard. Here in the UK where cities are 50 miles apart, millions of roads cross each other in very short ditances and where traffic jams are an everyday occurance, a navigation system is invaluable.
