    I'd be very wary of the rear end electrics after a repair. If it was just a bump that broke a bit of plastic you'll probably be OK.

    Thanks Andy, it does look like it is the bumper and no serious damage so fingers crossed it should be OK

    Car has gone to the car hospital to get better, so hopefully will get her back soon without any lasting issues.

    Hire car is a BMW M5 and I must say there is no comparison.

    The seats are hard, the controls are a nightmare and I personally think the Jag is faster.

    I've not heard of XF parking sensors being a problem, they were very very problematic in the X type.


    I'm surprised that you find the M5 slower. Each car's power delivery will be different and will take getting used to.

    I can certainly take on an M5 with the 3.0L RS
