Nice pressy for Christmas.

Just gotta ask but what is the go with people LOL after nearly every sentence nowdays.
I know it means laugh out loud but where is the humour in it being manual and neat?

XF's make the perfect first car. Only problem is way to many of them get wrecked soon after.

Hi
You could probably spend your time best just cleaning it. Pull the seats etc and pull the carpet out and wash it with a pressure cleaner and carpet cleaner. Giving it a good clean will help remove that old car smell and will let you find any areas that need attention. That engine bay will come up really good as well with some decent elbow grease. When you start working on mechanical parts it wont be so filthy.

Leave the rear louver kit on it, stops your speakers getting stuffed up by the sun as well as fading the cloth on the rear seats. Wished I had one on my EA...LOL.
