A well designed car with a unique quality feel that makes German cars feel positively sterile

After having seen them on the roads for the last 3 years and vowing to own one 'one day', I cant actually believe I have finally taken delivery of an XF. It has exceeded my expectations in every respect - I have achieved 55mpg on a gentle 300 mile run and when pushed hard it handles better than any 5 series or A6 I have owned previously.

The cabin is a work of art with a unique, distinctive quality feel. Every drive feels special and I always look forward to getting behind the wheel (which, covering 35000 miles a year, is every day). Luxury spec gives all the toys you need and the paddle shift, Sport mode and switchable traction gives all the control you need.

Only a couple of gripes - the Mirror Pack doesnt give the N/S one an 'auto tilt down' in reverse (unlike most of the competitors). And I seem to be getting repetitive rear disc vibration despite 2 visits to the Dealer and replacement discs and hubs. Other than that, its a peach of a car and worth every penny. The only improvement would be an XKR-S!

One final point. In these recessionary times, there is something quite satisfying knowing that you have supported British Industry by buying a car which has been designed and built in Britain and which holds its own with the best Germany and Japan have to offer.
