What can I say? I'm an old school type of guy. That's probably why I enjoyed just sitting in the 2004 Jaguar X-Type 3.0.The X-Type has gotten mixed reviews in the auto press - some saying that it's not Jaguar-like enough in terms of luxury - but I liked it. The X-Type is Jaguar's entry-level car, meaning you can get one for around $30,000. That's more than I've ever spent on a car, so I asked a friend of mine who has a BMW and a Porsche to try out the X-Type with me. (He's an attorney, what can I say?) He said it compared favorably with his BMW in terms of both its ride and how it's equipped. I liked the feel of the leather seats and the interior wood trim, though having only a single-disc CD player seemed a bit underwhelming. The heated front seats are a nice feature to have for Chicago winters. The metallic paint looked cool, but making it a $595 option irked me a bit. Any suggestions for gadgets we should try?
