Thanx, Diesel!
just have a thing about if the production version isn't more-than-less identical to the concept, it should explore different interpretations of the theme
so tried for a different kind of balance, making the lamps closer to equal in overall size, full circle for the smaller / sliced-off for the larger
& also moving the HL-hoodbump-fairing for the lamp inboard, lets the 'corner' of the front/hood/fender be more wing-like instead of (maybe) rocket-like (imho/if you get what I mean) - which may be why they didn't choose a solution along these lines(?)

here's a nother old quickie chop (http://home.surfree.com/~pauld/S-Type08.jpg) with some similarities to the HL/hood relationship

I was playing around with the XF too. The quad headlights in my chop look too much like an old Celica LOL. And I guess they want a new styling direction.

But when I think "Jag" I think XKE, rounded, smooth and agressive. The XF to me is too lumpy.

esp. the headlites!!! the way the angled lense cover 'completes' the sheetmetal!
AND it's not pointy!!!!! (soooo tired of that)
not crazy about the oval grille tho - too geometric for me
