Have a FE coming HOPEFULLY 20th April. Stupidly didn't order an Activity Bracelet / Key.

My dealer tells me they can't be ordered / configured now. Is that correct? What if you loose one - can't you order a replacement?

Anyone help?
thanks

Hi mcsquared747

I also have an FE on order and no one mentioned the need to order the activity key separately. From the description of the FE within the brochure, page 63, it clearly states the Activity key is a 'Standard Feature" on the FE.

Also have a look at this from the online manual:
http://www.ownerinfo.jaguar.com/document/4A/2017/T19945/20835_en_GBR/proc/G1894247.
It seems to implie that the 'paring' takes place each time you use the activity key with the vehicle. Finally if you go on the jaguar configurator the activity key is available to select as an option, clicking the 'additional information' brings up the following:
"You can use the Activity Key while keys remain in the car as the conventional key fob is deactivated for security.
Also available as a retailer fit accessory".

So if anyone did not order a activity key and wants one in the future, it look like you can have it fitted retrospectively.

I would also expect the replacement wrist straps would be available just like any other replacement part from Jaguar.

From other treads on this site it does appear that the sales reps still have a bit to learn about the F Pace and are 'winging" it a bit.

Thanks for the replies.

Hmm - I am very much hoping so chaps.

I should have said, my FE is the one allocated to the Andorra dealer. The Euro spec for the FE seems a little different to the UK? (eg - it's Ultimate Black - not blue. I'm happy with this as think it looks fantastic in black).

I'll let you know when it arrives if the activity key is indeed supplied!

You can't order the activity key after factory build. The issue isn't they key itself - can always get a replacement one of those. It is the inside wiring, RFID receiver, etc, that is need for the Activity key to work, that can only be installed at build time.

Don't get me started on the market variations. In NA, we can't get: 3L Diesel, Portfolio Model, Windsor Leather, half the wood veneer choices, 80% of the accessories, the Sienna interior, different coloured roof rails, chrome on the S model... etc. I love Jag for its luxury, having owned a few. Yet for the NA market they seem to have decided that the F-Pace is supposed to be only a sports car, and that in NA to be sporting you have to black window surrounds, and basic interiors. So frustrating. I tried every possible back channel to get a portfolio interior/chrome/etc. since I am ordering a custom build anyway, and Jaguar refused, saying that those options were not available for the NA market. My only hope is that some can be fitted after market by a skilled mechanic.

Believe it or not even here in the UK there are huge frustrations with the specs.

On the Supposed top of the range FE you guys get rear climate, memory seats and other bits but we don't and can't even pay to have them fitted.

Some genius (hope he's reading this) in an office at Jaguar dictates and we have no choice but to go with it.

They still get their money because we ate loyal customers!

Anyway nice to see interest from across the pond!
