Never been in one, let alone driven one, but it was hailed by the mags as the smoothest, most refined 6 cyl diesel on the market.

It's a twin turbo, which is good. But it hasn't got anything like the shove of stuff like the 535d.

Yep with only 207BHP it will be way behind the 335D, this new XF jag is getting this engine........ shame really as they have a V8 TDI they could have used. 169144-ok.gif

a guy at work has one of these, been in it quite a few times and it was ok, not overly slow but was a 'nice' car to be in and drive. He is getting it re-maped some time soon so should be better then. It wouldnt be my first choice of car!

Strange, I am about to write a review on the 2.7D XF soon +++

Basically, it's not quite powerful enough for my liking, but it's still reasonably rapid, about 140 tops and 60 in 8 secs. I've driven one quite a bit now and there's plenty of power to overtake. Overall it's a brilliant engine, very quite inside and even from outside it's incredibly quite.

I've seen a few remaps available to boost the power by about 40bhp, which would be rather nice! Jag are also releasing a new diesel, most likely early 2009, which will essentially be the same engine, but in 3.0 format. No idea how much that will put out, but I assume not a lot more than the 2.7.

I will go and take a peek when the diesel gets upgraded or 2nd hand supercharged ones are £39995.
