THANKS! Yeah I wasn't even considering the 2011 or older XF's...in 2012 along with a refreshed exterior, they got all new seats, new leather packages, and the XF got an all new steering wheel. They also updated the touch screen/electronics interface for navigation, etc so it works smoother. Also, the XF has had the 09, 10, and '11 model years to figure out bugs so I was hoping the 4th model year into the run they'll have worked out some of the reliability bugs and issues! No problems so far, but I've only driven it about 2,500 miles...wish me luck!
