But a nice 35-45k (USD) Jag does sound appealing.
I've had two extensive test drives in the XF and whilst, in many respects, I think it's a very good car, it doesn't match the F10 in terms of performance, handling and ride quality. Then there's the interior - ok if you like blue lights and lots of cheap looking bling, but the BMW is a masterclass in quality and understated elegance.
