TDI Tuning box for F-Pace 20d (180PS)

Post by FXE » Tue May 25, 2021 11:43 pm

Bought from tdi-tuning.com (https://tdi-tuning.com/en-gb/car/jaguar ... g-box-chip), took it off before selling my car. Has the Bluetooth connectivity option. Should take the car from 180PS to 238 PS and from 428NM to 509NM.

Their price is £419.99, I'd be willing to give it away for half price (i.e £210) shipped within EU. Due to Brexit there might be taxes when shipping to UK, so please take that into consideration, I can help from my side as much as I can, but won't take any responsibility for that.

How did You find it? Any issues at all. Did Jaguar pick it up on a service. Unfortunately we don’t have the same engine otherwise I would have bought this

It definitely felt better, but I didn't measure the difference in acceleration or get it dynod, so can't quote any numbers. Never had any issues with it.

I removed it before taking the car in for service which is luckily pretty easy on F-Pace. Never had any comments or questions from the dealer. That's also the main reason I went with a box instead of a tune, to keep the warranty intact.

Since it's just collecting dust, I'll lower the price to £175 including tracked shipping.

How long have you used this? I bought an F-Pace R-Sport MY19 2 Litre AWD 177BHP couple of days ago, not sure if this is the same model as yours. Are you based in UK?
I can see that my car hesitates for some time when starting from standstill but changes gears fine afterwards. Would using this Tuning box fix this issue?
How hard is it to fit this Tuning box? And have you informed your insurance company? Did that increase your premium?
Have you noticed any increase in the engine sound? I am a bit scared if this would put more stress on the engine.
Sorry for so many questions :) I just got the car and still learning about the car. Thank you.

They don’t put any stress on the engine as it’s such a small amount of power the same engine as different ps from factory so won’t make any difference
Insurance shouldn’t be effected and why should you tell them anyway it just unplugs .
They are easy to fit but if the op as a receipt then tdi tuning refit for free only takes seconds
As long as it works then it’s a bargain price as they are well over £400 new plus they give you better fuel economy as well as a bit more power you can see reviews on them on YouTube

they bluff sensors to up the fueling...
why tell the insurance? the way I look at it is, the insurance company will take any reason not to pay out.
Sure why would they know says you, If the claim or crash is big enough the insurance company /plod will have the car inspected.
keep yourself right.

indianguy - this was fitted to MY19 2.0 diesel AWD with 177BHP before as well. With R-Sport package as well, not that it makes a difference :). I am not based in the UK so in case you are located there, you will have to pay local VAT I believe as well (because of the Brexit) so the total would be 175£+20% = 210£. Still 50% cheaper than from TDI-Tuning website. Inside EU though no additional taxes.

Notifying the insurance depends on the country and your personal policy, but I don't see how they could get away with not paying out the insurance because of a tuning box in any normal country. I've never heard of anyone notifying the insurance because of a box/remap, and I know many people who have had their tuned cars written off because of an accident (no issues with insurance ever). Not legal advice obviously.

I notified my insurers when I had my F-Pace remapped.

In the UK it is a condition of most insurance policies that you notify the insurers of any modifications from the standard car. Failure to do so could invalidate the insurance so not only might they not pay out if there was a claim but you could find yourself charged with driving without insurance.
