Bought my XF-S last March 2020 only thing I've had done is the major service ,ive not even had to put any air in the tyres, what did have done tho was stag1remap, took it to 325bhp top speed 165mph, next step is change to Hybrid turbos, new intercooler new air intakes dpf delete and new remap also on gearbox, lower by 25mm and upgraded carbon breaks, I'll place results and cost when done, should be in July this year

carbon brakes? quite expensive addition, more likely doubling value of the car ;) my jag specialist has xkr as project car and brakes for it were around 5k i think, they went against it as they are very expensive and very prone to damage - any scratch on disc surface eliminates them and they need to be replaced (what i've been told)

Who did you get the remap done with?

Don't waste money on CSiC brakes unless you plan on doing some track driving as normal driving will never get them hot enough to get the benefit over standard Iron brakes. Also CSiC disc's can look scratched or crazed but this does not mean they need to be replaced. (For info I have just retired from Bentley Motors after 36 years with 15 years working with the Chassis Engineering team looking after brake systems, fuel systems, Suspension systems and front/rear axles) Hope this is useful info.
