Yes the seats, front seat design was changed to give slightly increased leg room to rear seat passengers, however the difference is not that hugeDoes the x358 really have different seats to increase rear legroom compared with the x350?
I have seen this stated in a couple of places but I don't see it myself.
I suppose it's all down to personal taste, but I'm not so enamoured with the big bumper look.Whilst the X358 restyle is not to my taste, would it seem I am in a minority as the later cars leap up in price on the used market, especially low mileage examples? I'm thinking of a radiance red 49k 06 Sovereign that sold for £9.5k whereas there is a similar X358 only 2 years younger up for a strong £14k.
Hi Philip.The worst thing about the x350 seat design is that they put so much of the mechanism and motors at the rear of the front seat that if you sit in the back you can't slide you feet under the front seat in front of you.
The problem isn't lack of knee room, but the fact that there's not enough gap between the front seat and the floor.
Did they change that at all on the x358?
I may be wrong but my 2005 X350 has double glazing?motor manufacturer in the main do things only when they have to....
regarding the seat changes - I'm convinced that was regulatory. The Seat strength Directive changed around then
the brakes were changed from the wholeheartedly crap Brembo to a much more reliable Alfred Teves design. The main cause being "knock-back"
and somewhere in the mix, there was a change to double-glazing
