Price of the XF has been revised increased by 50k and a few more features have been added. Xenons are now standard !! Ex-show thane 48.5L
With the MH road tax on CBU's coming down to 7% makes the XF a great buy. I guess the OTR thane should be 51-52L

Quite a relief that xenons have been standardized. A car of such stature , brand value without xenons was frankly a tad embarrassing.
Wonder why they left them out in the first place ? Ok so they are expensive, but its not like they are trying to sell a CE here. Its a Jag and its expected to be steep.

I guess their largest fleet buyer-The Taj hotel's taxi Jags did not require xenon's so they didnt add it
Nonetheless, they have been quick to add it.

They should soon offer rears screens in the headrest that is currently being tested on their demo car. Personally I think this should come standard since the 530d comes with it but they might offer it at an added costs of over 1lakh.

But the best piece of information I got from them is that their BSI kind packages are in the making and should come within 6months! Thanks you BMW
