bmw m5 versus jaguar xjr

    Ur paying more for the BMW and in that year the jag looks more better but the m5 is still nice looking

    @Markoferrari88 most comments here are fully opposites,: So you hit the nail right on the head,both are great cars but with very different buyers

  • Markoferrari88 schreef:

    They are both PHENOMENAL cars, in their own rights. They just appeal to different buyers. Most people looking to buy an M5 are not going to consider an XJR and vice versa. And I must say that if anyone refers to either of these cars as ‘crap’ (particularly the Jaguar) then that person is quite stunned and needs to have their head read.

    Ps. The Jag does NOT handle like crap.

    People must realize that these are two very different animals. On paper they may compete very closely, however, the overall experience is vastly different. I have driven several E39 M5s. I also have driven an XJR. The M5, of course has a manual trans. whereas the Jag, an auto. The Jag is much more quiet and sophisticated feeling. The M5 feels much sportier. Regarding looks, the BMW is awesome, but the Jag is simply classic. They are both immensely fast (and I would know 😉

    no it isn’t it is shite in all colours, i hate it.

  • superdan1875 schreef:

    but the jag is cooler, especially in black

  • Penisbaby101 schreef:

    It really comes down to what you want. The both are so close in all aspects. Here in the US its nice to see a Jag once in a while because everyone has a BMW. They are more common than a Toyota. The Jaguar in reality is a luxury car that welcomes you. The BMW is more just an expensive car with all the options not that luxurious. BMW is a driver car and Jaguar a classic, stylish luxury car that also happens to be a tight competitor for the BMW M5. You do get more $ wise with the Jaguar.

  • ladasrcrap schreef:

    couldn’t agree more, the Jag is crap.

  • ladasrcrap schreef:

    The Jag is shit, looks shit, and handles shit, you can see it rolls in the bends whereas the M5 was so planted in the corners. BMW have always been king when it comes to 4 door saloon’s, although the XFR is a great car but i would rather the M5.

  • mondeost2202008 schreef:

    @Penisbaby101 and think about the drawbacks of the Jag. It’s big, heavy and underpowered compared to the M5 but it kept up pretty well. If it was as lighter and as powerful as the M5, It would beat it.

  • mondeost2202008 schreef:

    @M5PowerM3Power That’s the point. If you compare a race car driver and a journalist in testing a 4 door sedan then the journalist would be a much more informative person for the job because he’s a normal guy not a professional driver but since it’s Clarkson then I could say both drivers are just as biased.

    And the Jag did pretty well for a big heavy saloon in comparison to the lighter more powerful and faster M5.

    I just realised… check out Tiff at 1:35… the M5`s a manual… yet the auto Jag still keeps up…

    I hope Tiff & Jez test the 2010 510bhp XJ Supersport against the current M5…

  • trytthisnow schreef:

    Naturally aspirated engines ftw!

    jag needs a supercharger to keep up..lol…

  • TheAlfameArmory schreef:


    So, the stereotype is true *looks at your username*.

  • TheAlfameArmory schreef:

    Go Tiff Needell!

  • M5PowerM3Power schreef:

    Tiff Needel’s opinion > clarkson

    anyone who argues this is pathetic, Tiff is a hugely succesful racer while clarkson is simply a journalist with a hobby. 🙂

    jag owned it

  • Penisbaby101 schreef:

    The BMW is a great car, but just lacks the luxury of the Jaguar. I had an XJR and they are great performance machines. If the XJR was nocked down to 3,600lbs to match the M5 the XJR would keep right up even with the 20 less HP. My friend always bagged on me for buying the XJR vs the M5. Once I got the 1st gear shift to shift where it should and bumped up to 400hp he never mentioned it again as i would beat up his M5 all day. Accelaration, road controle, and comfort. XJR all day.

    @iainthornton That is correct as the limiter only works in D not 5th gear

  • stiflers1 schreef:

    the perfect jag !!

  • iainthornton schreef:

    I heard that on these Jags there’s a trick built in ‘secretly’
    at 155, if you move the gearlever across the J-gate and back into D, it overrides the limiter

    I have no idea if this is true, but I hope so. Either way, I’ll find out one day 😉
