Just placed an order for my F-Pace at a local dealer, although as it's the bank holiday weekend they can't confirm until Tuesday.

I live a stones throw from the Solihull plant where it is being built so see a lot of the test vehicles being di ben around. I have been to the launch at Castle Brom which was great to see the vehicle but I was disappointed at how little the reps there knew about the vehicle.

I asked questions like:
Does the browser on intouch pro work while the vehicle is in motion?
Do the memory seat options also move the electric mirrors, steering wheel etc? The demo one didn't and the "expert" didn't minnow if the finished production vehicle would
I asked whether the mood lighting was configurable with the two different keys or the memory option eg if my wife drives on her key will the mood lighting change to red then when I drive with my key the next day on my memory setting it go back to blue?
Does the sunroof close automatically when you lock the car like Audi's do?
The portfolio gives you an option to specify sport seats at an extra cost (I assume the ones from the R-Sport), can you therefore specify the two colour leather from the R-Sport if you opt for this option

Strange that the specialist who is currently going around the country answering questions of the F-Pace didn't know the answer to these questions . I asked him what happened when he drove it and he told me he hadn't driven it!

Anyway the good news is that one of my relatives is a director at Jag and is getting a vehicle for me to drive for a few hours next weekend which will be an actual production F-Pace so hopefully I can find out myself.

My order was for a 2.0 AWD R-Sport, Storm Grey, intouch pro. pan roof, memory seats, mood lighting, swivel tow bar, reverse camera, gesture tailgate, adaptive cruise, queue assist, home link, rear camera, blind spot monitor, keyless entry and of course the all important and ridiculous cup holder cover for £50!

As I'm driving a production model (think it will be. 3.0S) does anyone have any questions they want me to check out while I'm at it?

Unfortunately as he is in development I doubt he will know too much about the production side, but I will ask. I will obviously also ask if there is a way I can speed up my order ;)

No the vehicle I will be driving is another directors staff car.

"Luke" rings a bell but it could be Ryan. He seemed frustrated that he wasn't allowed to drive it.
