Jaguar XF 3.0d | Best Custom Exhaust? | Spires vs Powervalve


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I'm looking to swap out the default exhaust on my '13 XF 3.0d to something that looks and sounds better.

So far I've found two options, Spires and Powervalve...

Powervalve: https://www.powervalve.co.uk/products/jaguar/jaguar-xf-3-0d-2007-2015/ja001-rear-silencer-set-with-choice-of-trims-powervalve-exhaust.html  

Spires: https://www.spires-st.com/product/xf-3-0-d-stage-2-exhaust/

I've heard really good things from Spires, but Powervalve is cheaper, looks a little beefier and the workshop is located much closer to me. In the videos that I've watched, Powervalve sounds a little louder in the low end as well.

Has anyone used or heard these exhausts in person? I know the car is a diesel and I'm not expecting it to sound like a V8 (or anything close) with this mod, but some reassurance on the above would be appreciated.


PS: I am not planning to get my DPF removed, so will rule out any experience with these exhausts that also include this as a factor to sound/performance.

Personally I think the Spires exhaust looks to have a higher quality finish.

Just my opinion though, let us know which one you go for and what you think of the results.
