Just a quick post to say hello. New to BMW new to this forum but having used a forum for my previous car I know how valuable these things are.

 

I've done just under a 100 miles, the previous car was 3ltr so I can't really compare on performance (yet), first impressions I love it although I didn't fall out of love with the XF it just came to a natural conclusion on age and not just the car. 

 

I'm really looking forward to the next few months (like a big kid really)

Will be interesting to know someones opinion who drove both cars, apparently Jaguar is better to drive and quitter but less premium inside and less efficient? It's hard for you to move from 3.0ltr engine to 2.0ltr?

 

Hey, you need to add a few photos of the new car and even to see Jag will be nice! Enjoy the 5er! ;)

Well I'm getting on a bit, 50 less bhp I'm not really noticing , I'm getting some very encouraging MPG too. Little things I will miss. Folding back seats, electric folding side mirrors and I've been looking like a right prat trying to open the drivers door by just walking up to it with the fob in my pocket !

I part ex'd the old Jag to a national 'Car Shop' kinda place, I knew and they knew there was an engine fault, over 2.5k revs 'Restricted Performance' would appear. Probably Turbo Issue.

 

A month later the car turns up in east London , on a car lot twice the price I got for it, fair enough not my problem nor my issue, the new owner contacts me from all the documentation bills invoices etc and asks me if there was anything wrong with it. The issue above still exists !

 

I hope he gets it sorted under the warranty they gave him or his money back, on his test drive on busy East London streets he didn't go above 2.5k revs, someone somewhere made 3k out of that car by giving it a shine.
