Yep that's what it is - if you were around during the old Panel Van craze days they were big then - every second van had one - most had the outside piece the same colour as the car and the scoop bit painted matt black- some looked ok if they were blended in to the bonnet properly but they will always crack around the joins.

On a XF - Wellll I guess it's your car - I personally would put the Phase 5 scoop on it (the one with "shark gills" on each side)

Yes, the one with the slits either side of it is an awesome muscle scoop. If you need help in tracking something like that down, speak to Canberra Car Style 02 6280 6020.
