I have to disagree, if you do a personal contract through jag for an identical spec S D or SC the SC is cheaper because Jag forecast the residuals will be better. I know this because i checked and even worse the salesman listed it as a D on the PCH forms and then when i pointed it out and they re did the forms my monthly payment reduced by over £1200 on a 3 year contract so that tells me jag expects a petrol S v D to be worth approx £2.5k more at three years old with 30K miles....macview19 said:It will be very interesting to see how the residuals shape up in 2years when it will be time to change for a new vehicle. According to the dealer the
diesels will be more valuable but after 40 odd years in the motor industry myself I will not hold my breath. If I had purchased a car purely on residuals
in this category I would have purchased a Porsche Macan S as it has one of the best residuals in the market but it is very cramped in the rear and the price of options are exorbitant .The F pace is better looking more up to date systems better to drive for every day use and a much higher standard
specification but the interior is not as good as the Macan when it comes to the quality of some plastics in the Fpace.I am pleased with the Jaguar but
feel this is one area where if Jaguar had added cost to the price to upgrade the quality of the interior it would have been beneficial After one month
with 600miles now have the dreaded creaking rear suspension on my 3 litre diesel S Rhodium Silver with far to many options which count for little
at trade in time
Maybe at 3/4 throttle I agree but it definitely isn't at full throttle, the SC is noticeably quicker and as I have said in other posts the D will be quick and do everything you want BUT the petrol adds a different dimension.luminated said:Done the whole high powered petrol SUVs before diesels really became good, now I'd pick a big diesel SUV every time. Not saying the SC isn't more fun but you really have to work it and always in the back of your mind you'll be thinking about your wallet whilst you do.
Upton 3/4 throttle I reckon the diesel is quicker.
And there are already performance upgrades that takes it way past a standard SC Fpace if you want to be faster.Mbadger77 said:Anyway to sort of get a little bit back on track there are and will be after market exhausts if you fancy a bit more noise out the back
Maybe but when getting a PCP quote you get a GUARANTEED future value (GFV) on which your monthly payments are based along with the final balloon payment. The petrol version has a higher GFV than the diesel resulting in lower monthly payments. Of course Jag finance is making a prediction but you are guaranteed that prediction when purchasing via PCP.luminated said:Do not look at leasing rate as a gauge as to which model will hold the most value come resale, if I were to do that I'd buy myself an M5. lol
The monthly rate the brother got was £508+vat for a 6+36 deal back 2.5yrs ago, that equates to an outlay of only £25,600.... yet in reality an M5 loses almost this much in the first year.
I'd bet come three years time the 3D will be worth 6-8% more.
True, I've seen 345hp on offer and having chipped my Cayenne Diesel in the past and how big a difference it made I'd serious consider it.Jagfpacejk said:
