Re: Winter Tyres

As June16 mentioned Blucat the key point is that "It’s seems tyres are not being updated or tested to reflect current market trends, new products released and availability" and it would be great to know the up-to-date guidance from Jaguar. Correct, That’s why I posted this in the CRC section and no...

Re: Winter Tyres

Quite confusing, but I would think the Jaguar certified tyre is just a ploy to make you buy into the winter tyre/wheel swap schemes. It would make sense that 22in tyress that are jlr compatible are probably fit for jaguar. I woukd also think that any tyre that porsche/lexus are using are also compat...

Re: FPace went in for a couple of things...

Good to hear that everything is back to normal. Did you notice any other symptoms from the dying battery other than start stop not working? Is yours used daily? Im still getting used to the start stop behaviour as it doesnt always activate depending on journey lengths and frequency of usage in gener...

Re: Poor PDI

Btw, good call on waiting for JA as that is the only way to go, however, what you could have additionally done was get the JA driver to shadow you to the nearest dealer to drop your car off, and where the JA man would confirm the issue and help get you a replacement car there and then from JA So eve...

Re: Poor PDI

Are these hoseclamps visible or reachable or are they obscured out the way? Do you have any picks from under the hood? Id like to try diy check if possible as mine is also a new 25t. Dont think mines had any unusual odours other than new car smell and on the first use of the ac at high temp, but tho...

Re: Suspension

Hi Blu, Well they said it may settle initially but the settings are 15-30mm from memory so it was set at that and looks the same now. After initial period I wouldn’t say I’ve noticed any changes. It has reduced the Ackerman effect (crabbing noise in cold on lock) but not 100% and tyre wear looks ev...

Re: Puncture and spare

Glad you got that repaired and good to hear that the skinny spare and kit is up to the job. Always a nightmarish thought having to potentially tackle the tyre change without a proper jack / breaker bar etc. The skinny spare is probably steel and theres still a lot of rubber in the tyre, so wouldn't ...

Re: Suspension

Re suspension, interesting to note that KW have confirmed compatibility of their spring lowering kit for all fpace variants - not just the adaptive damper type. These progressive type springs could help with noise and ride as theyre not normally set up to be firm for the initial load, but become fi...

Re: Car didn't start - possible battery/charging issue

Just to update my findings on running with one of these smart Alternators. I bought a ring voltmeter that plugs into the cigarette lighter socket under thecarmrest, it sits nicely in the cup holders location once plugged in. Starting the car before cranking engine 12.2 volts. Engine idling after st...
