Re: My New Steering Wheel

Few questions/comments 1 What happened to the old one? 2. Get back to the garage immediately - they've put it on the wrong side!! 3. You haven't opted for the heated steering wheel - schoolboy error, unless you live in a permanently hot country (which shorts worn in October might well suggest is the...

Re: Bugbears - what would you change if you could ?

I would move the control button to move from Normal, Dynamic, Snow/rain, Eco modes from the Centre console onto the Steering Wheel. This is much safer than taking your hand off the wheel and having to look down to find the button. DPE - spot on! like the M1 and M2 buttons I had on my M4's steering ...

Re: F-Pace SVR coming soon?

Thanks nowmar - interesting that you have focused on the seats and ride quality. Acceleration, engine sound, and handling would have been where my attention was directed!! :D The acceleration i felt was slightly quicker then the v6, did not fell massively quicker but it did reach 150mph much faster...

Re: F-Pace SVR coming soon?

Saw one at local dealer yesterday. Air vents on bonnet look a bit bland and cheap. No writing on them. Plain plastic. Automatic gear changer different too. Were they actually using it as a demonstrator? Seems odd that there has been a workable car in the country for 2 weeks now, yet no magazine has...

Re: Winter Tyres

Thanks Mik - tyre size calculator link that I added above suggests that 265 is the biggest for 9", but there you go. Your call, but I'm not sure I'd go to the maximum on something you are relying on at 70mph and above! Different size back vs front tyres is not a problem on a 4 wheel drive - many hav...

Re: Winter Tyres

So looking into this more, there does seem to be some flexibility here. However, regarding the fitment of 275s, I came across two sites of relevance: https://www.wheel-size.com/size/jaguar/f-pace/2017/ shows that the 22" wheels are 9". https://www.tyresizecalculator.com/charts/tire-width-for-a-wheel...

Re: Winter Tyres

I mentioned before that 275/40/22 are within thd recommended range for the oem 22" rims. I ordered a set of 275s at the weekend. Pirelli's in this size are £400 a set cheaper than 265's (!) but I know the Vredstein Wintrac are excellent so saw no reason not to save a further £100 and go for them in...

Re: Engine doesn't switch off

Has anyone experience the engine not switching off at the first push of the button? It's quite intermittent and sometimes takes more than one push. The record for me is four. Because I'm slightly deaf in my left ear I got out of the car last week a couldn't figure out why the car wouldn't lock, bee...

Re: F-Pace SVR coming soon?

Is it really normal for a car from a major manufacturer to start deliveries nearly (or actually) a whole year after its launch?? Don't think I've ever seen that from the German manufacturers! To me this has the whiff of some sort of error or poor planning on JLR's part. I nothing else, the tech in t...
