Although another article on this website says that the future of Rolls-Royce automobiles is "uncertain", BMW is most definitely going to continue to build them. All-new designs are now being finalized. It's the end of an era, since Bentley and Rolls-Royce are now German cars, but it's not the end of Rolls-Royce. I also question whether Bentley outsells R-R; that wasn't the case for the past several decades. It's not really pertinent here, though.
And now, back to the X-type...

There, I hope you're happy - there's my bit for Queen and country. :-) Have I mentioned that I still love my car? (Look, I even kept this message short! And it doesn't flame/attack/smash/point-out-the-stupidity-of/slam/ruin-the-reputation-of anyone!)____________________________________
2003 CHANGESOh yes, and the car magazines are wrong. For 2003, there have been many changes to the X-type including a new slightly metallic higher quality facia for the center console that was black in the 2002 models (the single complaint point that people have had about the X-type and new S-type's interiors is fixed - no more black plastic). The wood steering wheel is also gorgeous and really adds to the car's interior. I saw all of this at a recent auto show so I can speak for all of the little changes from personally examining an '03. Also, noticed that Jaguar does not share any interior fittings in any of its models with any Ford models - even the S-type's highly criticized window switches happen to be the same ones as the XJ8's. The X-type's climate control buttons are shared with the Aston Martin Vanquish though, and it has the same sun visors as the XK8. Speaking of the XK8 and Vanquish, the new James Bond movie added to my Jaguar-patriotism. There seems to be a Jag in every scene of the film, and the villain even rows through his J-gate! I was so proud... :-)
