Funny topic!. I was going down this path and am now looking for an XH Dash for my XF : its the best of that lot.

Ash has done the EF into X series thing. The dash fits, but the door trims will hit it from about 1in from closed. From when I had an EB one in Id say you can fix this by modifying the door trims (ok, so Im actually saying by cutting that section out of them).

half LOL, half right!

Actually Ash stopped the project - believe hes getting a mustang instead

On the EB/D dash I grabbed a heat gun and reshaped the ends so that I could shut the doors.
