It was a pain installing the front splashguards as the supplied screws had trouble getting into the supplied clips. Eventually I got them all installed, but only because of the pictures and guide that you had posted.
    I got mine from EBay and although they came with screws and clips the screws are rubbish and not strong enough to fit the spire clips! Even so they are easy to fit and a bargain at $62Au. I was concerned they might not fit as the listing shows they are for 2011-2014 but they fit great.

    Subtle but so much neater than none.

    I just bought a set from China through eBay, complete with embossed Jaguar logo/text for the princely sum of AUD60, so about 35 Squids.
    That's for all four with mounting hardware. Bargain.
    Just when I think I'm over my insomnia the car behind me honks.

    Same here, bought Chinese knock-offs from eBay for around AU$60 about eight months ago.
    They have "Jacuar" text on them, that's right, Jacuar with a "c" not a "g", the fit is 95% right not quite perfect, and I had to drill an extra mounting hole in each front wheel well lining to improve the fit, but otherwise they went on easy enough, they look the piece, and they do what it says on the tin.

    At the end of the day they just get showered with crap so if you can get cheap knock off ones then perfect

    Not that I like them, I think they look awful on anything but a 4x4 or a rally car, really spoil the lines of the XF imo

    You really need to see them in the flesh. Photos don't do them justice, I don't notice mine really and I'd rather have them than paint the sills and rear bumper every few months.

    I have seen them in the flesh and don't like them, not exactly a sporty look imo

    I think they add to the car and give the area behind the wheel a finished look. They also protect the paintwork.

    I had them on my first XF, never bothered with the next 2 XF's, just didn't do it for me, but each to their own

    Not sure I'd bother but I fitted them to both XFs because I live up a farm track and didn't want the paintwork peppered. I think the Jaguar ones look fine, very discreet and also help keep the car cleaner, but I know not to everyone's taste.

    Yup, had what I refuse to call anything other than "mudflaps" on both of my XFs. I prefer the look of the car with them.
    XF replaced by a big tractor due to intransigence of Jaguar marketing. When I wanted to order, a V6 engine and a Portfolio interior was mutually exclusive if you lived in the UK, but not elsewhere.

    Old lives matter!
