Written off the Toyota and Mazda I think now anyway.

Still like the newest Superb.
This Audi was AWD, shame it wasnt as it appeared to be, it fitted me and felt right, if that makes sense.
Looking at an E-Class shortly.
Not seen a Jag estate fitting the bill yet, either getting on a bit, or intergallactic milage.
Keep thinking do I REALLY need an estate, but am sure i'd regret it if I didnt have one.

BE aware then that it ill need 4 tyres at a time due to the AWD setup used (true of most AWD setups), which gets quite pricey!

Basic DIY service like oil and filters, actually look nice and straight forward, from of the YouTube videos Iíve looked at.

Id still strongly consider a 5 series like that one, if not going Vauxhall.

The XF estates did not come across that big when I briefly looked at one.

You already have a perfectly good estate... ???

And if you don't want to spend the money more wisely, £15k buys alot of maintenance and petrol...
