The XKR is garaged in Florida and I have not driven it for a while. Also the roads down there are relatively smooth so even when we had the 335i there with RFTs on it ride quality was not an issue,

Since I had a Jaguar instructor sitting next to me I certainly was not able to do burn out 0-60 runs but the extra 50hp would probably be noticeable if I had tried it. I liked the adjustable dampers in the S a lot as you could dial in a bit more comfort which would be great for NYC driving. The interior was bit more sporty with black seats with contrasting red stiching.
