Looking very nice! What kind of ceramic coating did your detailer use? I am thinking about getting a ceramic coating for my car as well (after good polishing, etc.)
Feynlab Ceramic. The self-healing stuff was waaaaaaaaay too expensive for my liking.

:!: ps I don't think you have the adaptive cruise control
That was a balls-up on my part, started typing adapive dynamics but then typed cruise control - too late to edit by the time I noticed.

5th photo down is just showing the metallic in the paint as it's not the flat black.

Bit of a joke as the metallic bits in your paint look like photos of what we call "Road Rash" on here.
The XE is known for tiny chips on the panel in front of the rear wheels which show up due to the white/cream undercoat especially on darker cars.
Caused by bits and pieces being thrown up from the front wheels.
Clear protective wrap on the panel stops it and a few have had it done.

I'm not sure why I have 2... I intially assumed for the rear passenger, but they don't get a clear view of the screen.
My partner used them for 10 mins to check they work, they'll probably sit in the glove box (or get relegated to a shelf in the garages) now until I sell the car :P

I thought that was the case, but then thought that'd be some impressive road rash if the chips were green/purple/blue :)

However, I'm all too familiar with that, my previous XE was a dark blue prestige and prior to that a slightly lighter blue portfolio - nether had the sticky-out side skirts so when I got rid of them after ~60k those bits were practically white (when you washed it, it looked like it was covered in salt splashes). I made sure the cars were dirty when I sold them ;)
I'm hoping the skirts on the S will protect it a bit more - hopefully the stones will hit the underside of them, rather than a visible surface.

Mudflaps make a massive difference to stone chipping on the sills.
2018 XF-S Supercharged. In black. With extra black bits. And a bit more black.

Do the headphones have to be paired or anything. Upgraded a new XE with dual view and the headphones but can’t find any instructions on how to use them. At the moment we are all listening to the movie when my daughter is watching it !
