To many problem with Jaguar XK8, the quality are not exact what the factory tell. I do own a Mercedes Benz 300 SL/24. from 1990 from the first day!! means 25 years and I will say, nobody can ever say anything about the perfect quality. I will say, a Jaguar have no chance to run after 25 years, but a Mercedes can. My cup holder was broken as well, I do change the whole unit, without the cup holder. Search a replacement for the armrest, without the cup holder, that solve the problem. Jaguar XK8 and mostly all the rest of the new models have to many problem. The car look great, properly the best looking car i the world, but don't use it, just keep it in your garage for people to tell you ''You have a very nice looking car'' but may it run as well???
Have not repaired. I let my passengers fix it temporarily. Finally broke again and I ripped it off.
