Re: My new F-Pace 3.0D AWD Portfolio

The seats and door inserts are light oyster, the dashboard, doors and carpets are oyster, Nowatyk. My previous car had an ivory interior. I tend to keep my cars very clean, so I don't think I will have a problem. Fingers crossed.

Re: My new F-Pace 3.0D AWD Portfolio

This is the only interior shot I have so far. The 3.0D is very lively and well suited to the F Pace. I've had a 3.0D XF and a 3.0D XJ, it is a very good engine. As reported on another post, I am personally finding it a bit noisier than my previous 3.0D XJ, but I'm gradually getting used to it.

Re: First Impressions

Another 70 mile drive today, definitely an improvement on yesterday. I reduced the tyre pressures from 38/39 to 33PSI, so the ride is a bit kinder. The tyre noise was less noticeable, as I'm starting to get accustomed to it. The 3.0D does sound a bit more dieselly than my previous XJ and XFs, but on...

Re: First Impressions

I test drove a 2.0D R Sport and a 25T petrol version (24 hours), both of which had 22 inch wheels. They were both okay, but a bit firm. Reviews I read said that smaller wheels ride softer, especially with adaptable suspension. Having had an XF 3.0D and an XJ 3.0D, that was my engine preference, but ...

First Impressions

I took delivery of my new F-Pace 3.0D Portfolio yesterday, to replace my XJL 3.0D Portfolio. After two 50 mile drives, my first impressions are not very encouraging. In comparison with my XJ, the noise of the diesel engine is quite intrusive, tyre noise is quite intrusive, and the ride is juddery, e...
