Preferably not black.
Not majorly fussed on mileage as long as it's in good condition and been well looked after.

Is there any difference from 2011 to 2014 in spec or is it just options chosen at dealer?
Is meridian much better than b&w?

Facelift 2011 will probably be a 6-spd box. 2014 moved to an 8-spd.

iMO the B&W is superior to the Merdian, but don’t let that decide your car as you’ll probably have it turned off anyway!

I thought the 8spd came in 2012?

The XFR-S came out in 2013 so I’m surprised the XFR didn’t have it then either.

I’ve loved IRR ever since I saw this on the front cover...



When it was an XF-R exclusive colour. Thankfully they saw sense and gave it to the masses

I spent a lot of time looking into the 8 speed box when I was looking for my XFR.

It came out on all XF's apart from the R on the 2012MY, it then appeared on the R on the 2013MY.

I was under the impression that that was just a rebadge and that the amplifiers were actually made in the same factory (memory issues on my part?)? and that the quoted differences in power was down to measuring at 10% or 1% THD?

Thinking out loud: maybe the speaker cones and tone mapping were different causing the sonic differences?

I still don't understand the nuances of sound systems that you listen to inside a resonance chamber with a road and wind noise background soundtrack! Come on!!

There is a marked difference between the basic system on my XF and the Meridian system in the F-Pace John, especially when out on the road with the wind, rain and road noise.
