Buying experience

4 out of 5

Type of dealer you bought from?

Did you buy this car new?

What price did you pay?

When did you buy the car?
May 2015

Did you get a good deal and why?
Used small independent dealer who undercut the franchise companies by a long way.

Is there any special reason why you bought this car?
Love the styling of the xf. Sleek and sporty at the same time.

What was the dealer like?
Friendly and easy to talk to. No pressure to buy.

Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Beautifully smooth on the motorways even with the 19" wheels. Pulling away can be an issue as does have a delayed reaction when at junctions. Not as economical as the figures suggest. My 520d beat this hands down.

What's it like to park?
This is a big car. Always back in as no parking sensors on the front. But overall not to bad.

Living with it

5 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
3000 miles in and nothing wrong what so ever. Must say possibly taking a gamble buying from an independent as no real comeback if things do go wrong.

What's most practical about your car?
Blue tooth phone connection. A must if to be used as a second office on the road.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
The 19" upgrade wheels with the silver paintwork make the car stunning to look at. Also the media system integrates well with smart phones giving ease of use.
