Re: F pace 3.0d sport

I suspect a full specification, mileage, location, and asking price might help a little in gaining interest.

Re: Cracked Windscreen

Autoglass replaced my last XF’s screen at their depot in Birmingham when the car was a month old, due to a massive stone cracking it. It was a 2017 car with a heated screen so included all the fancy cameras. Took them a couple of hours and they fitted a Jaguar screen. This cost me a grand total of £...

My normal driving pattern is a daily commute within the city, plus some rare long-distance trips.
Based on that, get the petrol one. That sort of driving will likely lead to a whole world of DPF pain in the diesel.

Re: Upgrade to phase 4 or wait a bit ?

Is it just me or does that screen look ugly now? I think it’s ugly too , part of my reluctance to upgrade tbh. Along with the fact everything else works fine. I like the old graphics, the old red telephone box etc gives it character.I don’t have a slow boot issue on the latest 3.5 version , it’s in...

Re: wax after 7 months or polish plus protect or nothing...

That’s the main disadvantage to any ceramiccoating. It’s a pain to fix even the most minor scratch. You can just polish out a scratch and re-wax. Any polishing will remove the coating and when you try and reapply you get an obvious patch. So you have to do the whole panel. Gets even worse if it’s on...

Re: It's proving very hard to buy an F Pace

Why didn’t you ask to speak with the dealer principal and give them feedback on their sales staff?

But honestly just go to a different dealer.

Re: wax after 7 months or polish plus protect or nothing...

clay may well reveal some fine scratches in which case I will polish out with a DA polisher. Clay won’t just reveal some swirls, it’ll cause them as well. Never clay unless you’re going to polish as well. Menzerna 3800 brings JLR black paint up a treat as a finishing polish after compounding or a p...

I had 2 x FP’s and rejected both the first after six months the second after two weeks, to be fair the dealer and JLR finance were pretty good at resolving.

And here I am contemplating an I-pace, must be slightly deranged,
Well, the I-Pace isn't actually built by Jaguar :-)
