Looking for advice...

So, here I am, 5 months away from taking my pension lump sum.

My heart says keep the XF-S on the road, whatever the cost. The other half says 'get rid and buy a Tesla model S'

I'm drawn by both, but emotionally. I want to keep the XF-S, but practically, I see the sense behind the Tesla.

Thanks all for the replies!

Can't have both (no room for three cars (SWMBO has an Audi TT).

Don't use the XF as much as I used to (regular drives to Ireland to visit MiL, now sadly no longer with us).

Having said that, I probably manage about 300 miles a week, driving just for the hell of it.

Can't possibly consider a SUV of any kind (sorry Peter - just not as elegant as the XF!).

But, in profile at least, the Tesla Model S is very similar the the XF, just wish it had a 'face' with even a mock grille.

Decisions, decisions!

I sold my XF 3.0S when I retired six years ago, purely and simply because I wasn’t sure my typical journeys would be suitable for diesel. I bought the XK, and have never regretted it!

That said, it isn’t my daily drive, and would be a bit thirsty for 300 miles a week! Our dog walks and shopping trips all use our Citroen C4 Grand Picasso, and the combination of the two is perfect for our needs.
