    It's a little over 120k right now, and I'm taking another long road trip this weekend, so it'll keep climbing.

      Just replaced the rather torn up leather and wood steering wheel with an all-leather one from an XJ8, and also got a pretty good armrest from that same parts car to replace the busted one in the XKR. The XJ8 armrest is a bit more padded than the XKR one and rubs up a bit against the seat, so hopefully it won't be noisy over time. Also it looks like my old busted steering wheel had an AEK (sable) color code according to the sticker inside, rather than the AGE (antelope) color that the AGD (oatmeal) interior is supposed to be paired with. Weird.

        Finally got a vid of the new exhaust note (center muffler and rear resonator delete)

        Now need to hunt down an oil leak that makes it smell like something rubber is burning in the engine compartment; probably a valve cover gasket.

              Sounds great! I'll be sampling the XJR without rear silencers soon, we'll see if it's too droney for my tastes.

                Yeah if you're just straight-piping the rears with just the center muffler it'll be really bad, even if it sounds great at WOT; that's what the car came with when I bought it. It'll need Magnaflows back there at a minimum.

                  Noted. I’ll get some Magnaflows.
