All S models were fitted with Ruby or Smoke Grey carpets.
But no reference if available on other cars....but I guess when buying a New Jag and you wanted Ruby carpet it wouldn't have been a problem!
Well, from what Rob said tonight, your car will have been factory ordered by the customer as that's how Jag worked at the time, only what was ordered what built, so had your cars first owner said to the bloke that day in the showroom, give me a Ruby carpet, it would have been given one. Apparently Jag dealers were told to get the finger out and upsell, upsell, upsell, MORE PROFITS, offer sunroofs, more toys, promote the bespoke Insignia range, however most of the time it turned out the sales guys just sat back and prayed for an easy life, so probably a lot of customers didn't actually know they could personalise their car more to their tastes unless they interrogated the brochures, which a lot of people don't bother even looking at. Could also be the lady or gent didn't care too much about the carpets, they just wanted the most powerful machine in red!
