Faster and more comfortable on very challenging roads than an ISF according to Steve Suttcliffe - admittedly he is another UK journalist, but always keen on the better German cars.

Personally, I think the XF is a great car. This one will be the best yet. See http://www.autocar.co.uk/News/NewsAr...llCars/238211/ and the video at http://www.autocar.co.uk/VideosWallp...aspx?AR=237649

Anyway, what makes you think Clarkson is sold on the British built cars? He used to have an XJR, but then he had an SLK 55, and now I think a CLK 63 Black Series. Along the way he bought a Ford GT which he kept cursing on screen for going wrong, and a Gallardo.

Off topic? Sorry, I didn't start it. I did consider an XF instead of the M3, but this one was not available when I wanted to change, and I wanted a slightly rougher edge to a fast car.
