So I placed my order last week but have been told middle to end of December as a date.

I want to change my order.

Basically I am buying a van to use for work to keep miles down on the Jag, and as a result I want to change from the 3lt diesel to the 3lt petrol.

Can anyone imagine this being much of an issue yet? Will my Jag have wen my to build already do you think?

Others have added and taken away from there build spec, all i would say is contact your dealer first thing Monday, i am sure it will not be an issue.

Normally when placing there is a period before it's "locked down" and can't be changed. This is around a month from build so you should be OK for a few weeks yet. Hassle them Monday and change to the petrol :)

You'll love it

WHAT HAPPENED TO THE WAITING LISTS??

Order placed last week, delivery mid December, barely more than 8 weeks.

Has there been a spate of cancellations, or was this all marketing hype?

I don't hold out much hope for residual values! :(

To be honest i would not be surprised if it was both.

In answer to your question, yes you can change upto lock down date.

Re the waiting lists - my dealer told me an order placed today is February delivery now

Ah that's good news.

I text my salesman earlier - he just lol'd

The way I figure it, I'm doing approx 20k per year, most of it driving for work.

It's been mentioned before when calling to see customers to sell them £150 worth of chemical in a £70k+ RRS that I mustn't need the sale or the product is too expensive, so I figure if I buy a wee van and use it for normal day to day work and keep the jag for 'good' it'll keep the miles down and I won't really need a diesel.

You only live once, huh so if I have a beauty of a jag I may as well spoil myself and get the bigger engine!

Is there much day to day difference in the petrol vs diesel though in performance terms?

I'm maybe jumping the gun over the engine? A remapped 3.0d would maybe show the petrol a clean set of heels, would it?

It's around half a second, the petrol has good acceleration from stand still but the mid range punch from the diesel beats the petrol, some but the petrol due to the exhaust sound as the petrol does shout get out of my way hear I come where as the diesel is more a please get out of my way.

As for mpg is around 30 to 50 percent more mpg in the diesel.

See, the mid range punch is where it's at!

Every car I've had has been remapped, and I'd be certain that when a reputable company come out with a map for the 3.0d it really will be a slayer!

Frig it, I'll not change then!

I have always been very wary of having my engine re mapped. Apart from the advertising blurb that these specialist companies put out, has anyone first hand knowledge of the results?

I was told that it changed the way in which the car drives in as much as it makes it less smooth and very jumpy.

What about fuel consumption improved or worse?

Of course it must by its very nature invalidate the warranty, or is it something that the service department could not detect? I would be surprised if they couldn't as the first thing they do is to hook the vehicle up to the diagnostic computer.

Finally what about cost, I too have a 3.0D, I would be interested to hear. :?:

Take a look at experttuning.co.uk

They will take the 3.0d to 345bhp whilst improving fuel consumption.

Ask for Paul Durnsford the managing director. He is very reputable and a thoroughly nice guy.

I've had pretty much every diesel I've had in the last 10+ years remapped. BMW 330d 335d Range Rover sports, ford transit connect van, Mercedes 270 etc.

Sticking with a recognised name tuner and not one of the kind you see popping up on Facebook etc has meant I've never had any bother.

The differences have been phenomenal- the extra torque was very noticeable and still smooth and linear with improved mpg coming back.

I've been a major fan of diesel for all this time choosing the above Diesel engines over their petrol equivalent.

When there is so little difference on paper between both the 3lt engines I may just stick with my original order and look into mapping when the engine has loosened up

Best of both worlds!

Good afternoon Big Pimp,

Thank you for your message.

I can confirm that if your vehicle order has not yet been confirmed with the factory prior to build, you should still be able to make amendments to your order. To do so, I would advise that you contact your selling retailer who will be able to action this as necessary.

Many thanks,
Amellia

Thank you very much for your reply.

From speaking to my selling retailer he has told me the difference between petrol and diesel isn't night and day and that the 30d is far from a slouch

If you get a good map it makes the car better, I had a diesel Alfa done and it was more responsive, faster and had better MPG. Was less "lumpy" an d jerky than it was in stock but the cat was removed so that helped,

The diesel is nice and in pure numbers there isn't much in it especially as the diesel destroys the petrol in terms of torque so of course for lazy power and mid range overtaking it's maybe better in a number of ways.

After years in a diesel I'm with the petrol and my word - it may be something you want to try if you get a chance but it changes you, the noise from the exhaust is just fantastic. It's loud but not stupid loud and is a nice balance. The acceleration is pretty damn quick and the sound maybe makes it feel quicker. I took the diesel out and it went quick but just felt a little underwhelming at times though was still showing the MPH on the speedo !

It changes how you drive for sure and the petrol really does encourage a bit of the big kid in you and your pressing the growl pedal more than you might in the diesel, - the MPG suffers as well. Yes you can get 25-30 on a run but I'd expect 20 to b more the norm.

Would I swap to a diesel now knowing what I know. ?
Not a chance - it's one huge redeeming feature of this car for me.

Yours sounds fantastic!
The only other thing swaying me to stick with the devils fuel is the fact I tow a load in excess of 2 tonnes on a semi regular basis, and it's hard enough on my current RRS with the 3.0d so I can imagine it would drop dramatically in the petrol.

Mind you, when I'm shifting a bigger load, my big Lorry is returning a healthy 7mpg :D :D :D so I'll bet it wouldn't be that bad!

You want speed, sound and fuel economy....0-60 in 3.2 seconds, 155mph, fantastic exhaust note, especially barble pop n bang rolling off the throttle and I'm getting 35-40mpg. Forget towing though!!

Oh, now that is nice.

Have you shortened the rear or is that the way triumph intended?

Superb bike!
