Delighted to learn that you are happy with your XF :)
It is interesting to learn that your perception of poor performance was no more than that, perception.
Perhaps others who feel that there car doesn't perform well should take a leaf out of your book and head off to a race circuit with a friendly rival :lol:

Maybe they did not set it up correctly in the first place. It is possible, though I think unlikely because of warranty considerations, that the ECU has been re-mapped for performance. You may have read here that Paramount Performance are wishing to prove their technology, albeit on a diesel car, but I do not know if they are marketing a solution for a car such as yours yet :)
