Also new are laminated side glass and windshield with an acoustic interlayer for noise reduction, Conti-Teves braking system that improves pedal feel and performance, a tire pressure monitoring system, a DVD navigation system, standard electric rear sunshade on the XJ8 L and audio system connectivity to MP-3 players and iPods.
