    Get the last 6 digits of the VIN, go to a Jag dealer and ask them for the build sheet. This will list all the kit the car was originally sold with.

    If you're going on looks it's entirely subjective. I had a late XF for a w/e test drive & it seemed OK, but was only a w/e.

    Forget all the 0-60 times. The STR was never really built for that. The earlier ones especially just can't put the power down. Once you're rolling however, it's a different story. As Payno said, it's...

    That's the area for smoke from the Webasto heater all right. They moved to an electric one on the 3.0 litre but I believe the 2.7 KF kept the oil-fired heater. As suggested, get the flexi-pipe...

    Have you brimmed the fuel tank & checked how much to re-brim it ? Your true mpg may also be calculated from this. I think the tanks are the same size.

    Have you thought about buying from someone else, considering the state of the car they were happy to sell you initially. Doesn't say much about their inspection & preparation.

    Is your 'fade' associated with a hard(er) feel at the pedal, at least initially ? Try a test where instead of stamping the pedal down you press it a little slower & see what happens.
