    The Daimler-Chrysler group and the Daimler of Jaguar have nothing to do with each other.


    In 1960 Jaguar purchased the motor pioneer firm of Daimler. Jaguar needed more space and Daimler had a large factory in Coventry, to which engine manufacture would subsequently be transferred.

    So the name comes just from overtake from the Daimler factory by Jaguar. The Daimler brand though got into an alliance with Chrysler. I guess you could compare it a bit to what happened to Rolls Royce. VW bought the factory and BMW the badge...

    So the name Daimler within Jaguar signifies the top of the range models from Jaguar. Jag's Daimler is nothing more than a name that has lived on from Jaguar's history from the 60's.
    Why is it drug addicts and computer afficionados are both called users?

    Currently : Audi A6 - no install

    Second install : VW Passat '97 CarPC
    First install : '87 Audi 80 CarPC

    Being a Russian Jew myself, I am quite aware, either way that comment didn't make much sense. Oh well, moving on.
    I have found you an argument; I am not obliged to find you an understanding.

    Didn't notice anyone claiming that, after all its hard to confuse Ford with anything DaimlerChrysler.
