    Focus ST is 250bhp isn't it?

    The range rover Evoque Autobiography dynamic is 281bhp which is more inline with the ford mountune options.

    Is that still (pretty much) the Ecoboost engine?

    I wonder if I can buy all the bits to get that much power out of mine :p

    The XE is a very handsome car, that's actually the first I have seen in black and I must say ...looks better than white!

    The black contrasting with the light interior looks good, as far as I can tell from the outside at least.

    Shame about the alloys, I don't think that suit the style of the car.

    The alloys remind me of the strange design choices Vauxhall make on their wheels. They don't look like Jag wheel :(

    I think they look fine. Not amazing but not cheap and cheerful either.

    The lighting and potato pic doesn't help how they look either, they look better with nicer lighting and/or in the flesh.

    At least they're not silly 19s or 20s...

    It's a bit of a modern trend for gloss black wheels with a diamond cut face. Obviously some people like it, but I agree that it just looks a bit Wolfrace (who have been doing it for ages).

    With a repaint to entirely silver or similar, the wheel design itself looks nice actually. It also looks better side on when stock - the light does funny things at that angle.

    Lovely car nonetheless, and nice to see a petrol!

    They look exactly like the ones off a Honda Civic with the optional extra rice wheels.

    I think one of the problems is that they look too 2D, no concaveness to them at all.

    I personally prefer the 19" star wheels.

    Not really. There's been a surprising demand for petrols.

    Very surprising, I expected these to be like the XF (2,514 diesel vs 140 petrol on AutoTrader currently).

    Still quite local then, shall keep an eye out if I'm ever over that way :)

    How is it very surprising? The XF offered only large capacity 6 and 8 cylinder petrol engines, the XE offers 4 cylinder petrol engines in a market that looks to be increasing it's demand for small capacity petrol engines...

    The diesel/petrol split on the A4, 3 Series and C Class is still massive - roughly 9 to 1.

    9 to 1 on what sorry?

    Thing with XE is that is not on many company schemes yet and if you want over 190bhp you need to go petrol.
