TUT Boss is making me sell ma baby

Hi guys, I have been advised I must change to a car with double the fuel consumption of my 159 3.2 Q4 I am getting about 16/19 MPG max some times 15 if I am rushing.
What kind of money do you think I will get for my car.
May 2007 159 Q4 3.2 Lusso, Carbonio Black, Tan Leather, just serviced at 30,000 miles, FSH, New Tyres 17 month warranty left great all round condition.
I was trying to wait for new replacent for 159 and if looks like some of the images I have noticed (I will try to add the one I think looks great) I will feel sick, but 2013 is to long to wait, it looks like a Jaguar 3.00D XF Portfolio with XR mods 2010 with 2,800 miles 32,000 and it has the right wheels, sat nav, good sound system etc and I am told does around 32 MPG and is a lot faster than my Alfa, am I going to miss it or do you think this is a good move considering I am paying company car tax and the jag is well down the band compared to 159 any advise will be appreciated Deek

Swap it for a 2.4jtdm - a vast improvement in economy over what you're getting now without losing any funfactor!

To be honest you are likely to love the Jag

Any help on value ?

What do you think of the Alfa in the image do you think it will end up as good? Any idea on the value of my 159?
This is a photo of the XF that is for sale

XF looks good, not an Alfa but nice

To get "double the fuel consumption" you are going to need something like a Ferrari or maybe a Lamborghini so it's not all bad
