To Jag?

I currently have an E93 BMW 335i convertible, which is now coming up for a change. I love the power from its silky smooth three litre petrol engine and get about 30mpg, which is really impressive, but am now looking to change to a saloon with a slightly softer ride and more space. I had thought about the Jaguar XF 3.0 diesel, which seems to fit the bill. Do you have any other suggestions? I am looking for as much power as the BMW between 50-70 for overtaking and can afford about £48k on a PCP. I do mileage of about 18k a year.

The Jag is wonderful. Every kind of car you want, in one car. Sports, limo, economy. But it rides much better on 18" wheels than 19” or 20”. But the new BMW F10 530d runs the XF3.0d very close.
