Mine is a daily driver and I love it as well. The only problem, especially if you are a bit of an aggressive driver, is keeping cool and controlled in traffic. Think of it as a high ranking MMA fighter getting harassed by a moron in a club. The real champion will keep cool and pass on the fight.
You get called out a lot in an F-Type.

I hear you. I get a lot of red light challenges from shouty Mustangs, WRXs and other various cars. I rarely give them any attention. There was a purple Hellcat once, though...

Here in TX you even get challenged by big pickup trucks. I would not mind if they weren't throwing rocks all over creation while doing it

PBBarb Knowing Atlanta traffic, that tells me so much, that this can be in incessant stops and starts safely, provided of course one is careful.

DPelletier Thanks for your comments about rwd/awd. What sort of animal could you say the V8 is closest to on normal mode, non snow, but also with the Dynamic/TC off/sport paddles etc. off?

eeeeek Funny you mention the infotainment system, i have heard this is a weaker point of the car? I suppose when the bar is so high on the other elements of the car, it is hard to compare. But from a first gen XF, know how clunky these systems are. My philosophy is when I get into a jaag, the infotainment is in the rumbles exhaust, acceleration and the smile it puts on your face.

Paul champagne Love the MMA analogy. I don't think this will be a problem , I think there are several grandmothers who are more agressive than I am.

I suspect once I get the car I will be frequently passed by those looking for a bit of who can go fast mentality. But I will appreciate the fact I am content in a little heavy rocket without a need to prove it can get to the next red light faster than theirs.


Thanks again yall for your help, so many great opinions and experiences here
