The only problem with those is that they are the "old" font and for an XFR you want the new font (bigger/longer foot on the J). I found some of those a few years ago after mucho searching as they are very hard to find, but of course I can no longer find them or that seller (The Sticky Scene).
Here's a pic just after I repainted the calipers in yellow:

will have a search around, any idea what sizes i need to be looking for?

thanks
You want the same sizes or similar to those linked by sockpet, 20 x 80 mm for the front and 13 x 55 mm for the rear.
I just checked and that is the sizes of mine although 80 mm long on the front (on the the plate of the anti-rattle clip) is just a tad long and 70 or 75 mm would be better.
With the rear 55 mm again could be a tad long if you are looking to put them on the plate in the middle but they will be just right to put higher up on the caliper itself.
A word of warning though, in my experience that surface of the rear caliper is dimpled and decals won't stick, I had to file those spots flat before painting to get the decals to stick.

The rear callipers on the (my) XJ have logo plates so not an issue.
