Yes rear privacy glass as standard. It's a nice touch, something I was missing on my XF.
Found the eco button yesterday, gave it whirl...never again! I thought I had put the thing into some kind of snow mode, or like it went into limp mode.

Antmaz, I am awaiting delivery of a new Landmark, yulong white. Any chance for some pics when you have the chance?

Yes, I was planning on adding some pics but wanted to wait to fit my side steps first but here goes....

Once steps are on and it's had a nice clean and wax I will upload more, hopefully with a better backdrop!

More pics here viewtopic.php?f=8&t=9223&start=30 (think it's the same model - they all look pretty much the same to me).

Looks great Antmatz! Congratulations! Would be good to see the sidesteps once installed.

My delivery is due end of this month, would be good to keep contact as we have the same models, happy to give feedback when needed.

On another note, how is the 380W Meridian system? Is it any good?
What about MPG to date? Not expecting much judging from what's been reported but would be interesting to know on a fresh Landmark...

Would great to hear of any other comments you have about it?

Thanks again antmatz!

I get 40 mpg, 10 miles to office each way, 90% 30 mph limit, lots of stop start and average speed of 18 mph... personally love the eco button, just seems a passive ride.. 380 Meridian blows away my 2014 Merc's standard system.. in hindsight may have gone for bigger screen for apple car play.

Generally pleased with the motor so far.
380w Meridian is a step up from most standard systems and not bad by any stretch, however coming from my XF's 850W Meridian Surround, it's night and day bye comparison, and probably the item I am most underwhelmed about. I do love my music. It's not the volume as such, but the reduction in clarity even at lower volumes and it's far less immersive.

I've had a few random parking sensor warnings when there is clearly nothing too close, unsure if this is an issue, or just oversensitivity. I will keep an eye on this.

MPG slightly better than I was expecting, and agree with Evangelista31, I have a circa 18 mile commute and tend to get around 40 MPG, maybe slightly less on way home as more traffic in the evening.

I tried the eco button once....never again. Thought I had put it in limp mode:)

Waiting for a dry weekend to fit side steps now. Sunday may be possible.

You will be pleased, very comfortable, good ride, practical and looks nice. Good luck with yours.
