Well, I've had her for a week and the following has been done. Rear muffler removed, DBA slotted rotors and Ferodo Formula pads installed all round and she has been lowered.

She's got leather, premium sound and 18's, along with XR mats, XR scuff inserts. Tinting will be done in the new year when they get back in business.

Battens cold air kit with BMC filter is next.

Here are a few pics taken Xmsa day.

Ha, ha...I like mud flaps, and these are the smallest I've ever had!!

She sure is a sweet ride. The XF is but a memory now.

Forgot that a lower grill is also on the cards.

She is my new pride and joy. Had to give back the camera I borrowed. Soon I must buy my own digital camera, it's only about time. More pics when I get another camera. :(

My thoughts exactly!!!....people are wondering why I did these things but that's how they should have been in the first place. Ford did make a great car, it just needs a bit of finishing off. May as well enjoy it like this from the start.

How does it sound with the rear muffler removed? What did you replace it with?

It just has two pipes there now, with the new tips. Sounds pretty cool. Nice and loud sometimes, not so loud when cruising. Quieter than my XF which had a total new 2.5" system from extractors back put in.

I'll give it a while to see how it changes when she's travelled a bit more, it's all only new.

Other than a full Herrod's system, which I didn't really want, there's not much info around on what to do, but I had heard removing the rear muffler can give you a better sound. If only it was easier to get to the headers on these engines.
