I've heard the right colour mankini can do wonders for a photo filter :)

"Badger Bugger" is still my fav post followed by Wilfs trip to Hong Kong and the Ladyboys , third would be the guy who worked in an Indian restaurant that refused to use toilet roll and 4th would be the Pot Noodle thread.

That straight road looks epic. The dirt road not so much though. :eek: I tend to avoid them like the plague and they are fortunately very rare in this part of the world.

Surprisingly, the XF handles superbly on dirt roads. I was hesitant at first, but got over my concerns quickly. Straight roads are epic in one sense and incredibly boring in another! Luckily, the car eats the miles...

Yes I can imagine that it handles well on dirt roads too. It's just the problem of getting dust and sand into every nook and cranny of the car that makes me avoid unpaved roads. In central Europe they hardly exist, but up in Scandinavia where I drive sometimes they have quite a few sand/gravel based driveways and parking lots.

The seals are better than most Australian cars (which have to be good). The effort to make the car pristine again after long trips over dirt roads is fairly minimal, and I like the efforts that Jaguar have gone to in order to keep stuff OUT of the car. I look at some UK vehicles that have taken a beating (thanks to endless rain, salt and snow), and reckon that sand/gravel/dirt is much more forgiving on the car overall. And we tend not to suffer soggy footwells or door aquariums here - there simply isn't enough rain!

The only downside to long unsealed road travel is that I've bent the odd wheel - again, this is not unusual on Australian roads, and there are plenty of companies that offer to true up out-of-round wheels.

Interestingly, when the facelift model was released in Australia, the XF 2.2 made a circumnavigation of Australia (14,000km) in 24 days - lots of unsealed roads, too - and broke MPG records (3.98 l/100km) in doing so. The couple who achieved this went on to circumnavigate Tasmania (1136km) in an XF260 2.0 and averaged 3.75 l/100km (on a single tank) - Tassie has a lot of hills, which makes it more of a challenge than it might seem.

One of the things that I was a bit impressed about when I got my first XF was the door sealing which was much better than my previous Audi. So it's not dust in the cabin that bugs me about unsealed roads, but the dust you get elsewhere in the car, like the engine compartment and underneath. But I would happily have that instead of water, salt and winter sludge. I think the northern European climate, and above all the water and heat cycles you subject the car to if you park it outdoors, is an important reason to many of the "common" issues that people have with these cars.

Those are incredible consumption figures btw. Can't have been the most amusing drives and I guess above all the one around Australia must have been thousands of flat kilometers on cruise control at optimal speed for that engine. Would be interesting what my thirsty supercharged petrol would achieve on such a run.

Here is my Ultimate Black XF S. Love this car. Its on eibach springs to lower it by 25mm, finishes it off perfectly in my eyes without changing how the ride quality was. I've gone for Kalimnos in silver for a different look, spires quads and diffuser. Interior charcoal heated/cooled leather protected with Roborne LeatherGuard that I am authorised to apply and the paintwork and wheels coated in Nanolex SI3D HD coating which I carried out in April.
