    If I put on a sensible hat then I'd agree, with some regret, that for 25-30k a year the diesel does make sense

    ''Just couldnt live with the high 20's mpg for the miles we do''

    You'd be a lucky boy to get high 20's out of an XJR.... the best I've ever got is 26... that accelerator pedal is just tooo tempting

    Hi FlatCap,

    I believe the embossed leaper on the headrests were a feature of the 2009MY cars only, as was the DAB radio if I remember correctly. I think you'll only find these features on late 58, 09 and 59 plate cars. I've had a X358 TDVi for just over a year now and wouldn't change it for the world! Good luck in your search.
