I just got my XF two day ago and what a machine - can't stop driving it, comfort, handleing, looks, its got it all.someone said it looks like a mondeo. hey chaps who pinched is white stick.
this car is better looking in the flesh than any of the photos you see. jaguar are on a winner with this car it outshines any motor on the road today and once you drive it you dont want to get out of this great machine.
just sit in this motor and the dash and the hole layout will blow you away
Picked up car last week having ordered in October. When I went to collect car it was in showroom attracting a lot of attention. It looks stunning in the Radiance Red a real head turner. Looks apart it is an absolute joy to drive. I have driven A4's, A6's, 5 Series and none of them enjoy a corner like the XF. Even had it out in the recent snow and unlike my old BMW 525 I switched on the winter driving mode and made it to the office drama free. I am looking forward to driving this car for a long time.
I currently drive an 05-registered Mercedes E200 Kompressor and, having been very pleased with it, was thinking of going for the same again - until that is, I called in to my local Jaguar dealership about two weeks ago to look at and test drive the XF.
This car blew me away; one test drive was all I needed to convince me that this is the car for me!
I ordered a Radiance Red, 2.7D V6 Premium Luxury 4dr model there and then although I am going to have to be patient - the delivery date is not expected before mid-June.
I have never been this excited about a car before, the XF is truly a unique driving experience and I can't wait to take delivery of such a splendid vehicle. Well done, Jaguar!
I took delivery of my 2.7D Premium Luxury XF last week after placing my initial deposit as soon as the order books opened last September. After such a long wait and only a short test drive after the official launch I was like an expectant father all over again.
I have to say the car is absolutely fantastic! The styling is spot on, pictures don't do it justice, you just have to see it in the flesh to appreciate how good this car really looks. It drives like a dream too, OK it's not as quick off the mark as the equivalent BMW but 0-60's aren't everything. For sheer driving pleasure, in my opinion, BMW, Mercedes and Audi have a real fight on their hands and should think themselves lucky Jaguar can't produce the XF in large quantities.
I still grin like a lunatic every time I get behind the wheel, the theatre of startup and the fact that everyone does a double take as you drive past them is priceless. How some people have not had an accident as they stare at my car when driving along has amazed me. It really is a head turner.
If you have the budget and are in the market for a 5 series, think again and at least look at the XF, I'm sure you'll be surprised by it!
Oh, and most things you have to pay extra for on the German cars, such as Sat Nav, Leather, Auto, Bluetooth, Electric Seats to name but a few are all standard on the XF!!
