Thanks for the advice Dan, it’s going to be hard not pushing it a bit but, as long as I can keep away from long open stretches and slip roads it’ll be ok 🙄, was planning to keep it civilised for at least 1500 to 2000 miles before opening it up a bit, but nothing to stop me pressing that exhaust button before pressing the start button although the neighbours might object a bit 🤣,

Do you know they changed that ? In the USA there were some court verdicts condemming V8/V6 owners
to start the car with a closed garage door and wait with opening the door until the revs dropped - no joke - :roll: .

So the start-up is now silent not revving up automaticly. Much better for the life expectancy of the engines too..

You could briefly rev up to 4000rpm after 2000 miles I guess. Check your manual there is a section on running in..

You can read it now.. https://www.ownerinfo.jaguar.com/docume ... c/G1804713

The method described for the F-Type is more detailed :

Tomorrow you have other things to do then reading... :lol:

Have a safe trip ! :mrgreen:

The one I test drove was started from cold, and before the salesman started it he turned the ignition on, opened the valve, then started it. It definitely was at higher revs for the first 10/20 seconds or so.

You will know when you start. I only heared this rumour. Actually : you will be the first to know it for real,
I thinks loads of people would love to know the rumour is not true.. 8-)

And.. ..its true, at least for the F-Type.. https://www.ftypeforums.co.uk/viewtopic.php?f=21&t=4161

A couple of pics,
Last one is new and old together, was a bit strange with both being on the same plate,
When I get time, I’ll try and get that intoxicating noise

@ Nowaytk__ Congrats ! Looking good ; love the wheels !

Just read back the start of the thread. Indeed, the Velar SVR is far more costly. But the move from D300 to P575 / SVR is kind of strange when you move to a hybrid. In particular when you know the [F-Pace] hybrid [ and Velar, D5 , DS, Evoque ] will all be 3-cylinder 1500cc P300e engines...

I would simply stick with the SVR and wait for with the hybrid until you reach 70 or such age.. :mrgreen:

I plan to give my F-Type [P300] to my son when I'm 65 [ 6 more yrs]. Maybe I then switch to an EV XJ or such..

When you read this you had a nice day out I think. Try to keep everything in one piece... ;)

Beginning to think I may have this a while, going by all the grinning I’ve been doing, 😄, the journey back from the dealer, which was mainly duel carriageway, small amount of motorway followed by 10 mins of stop start traffic, seems to of returned just under 22mpg, which is ok for me considering tight engine etc, to be fair was expecting under 20mpg. Even in stop start traffic, just the process of the engine coming to life again with its low growl makes me smile every time, just got to think of some excuses on why I need to pop out, Already had to use the favourite of, need to put fuel in it dear, 😁 (I’ll be using that one a lot, lol) incidentally, the trip was saying just over 500 miles to empty with a full tank, although I think it’ll be more like half that lol. On start up it definitely revs higher for the first 10/15 secs and with the loud button pressed even blipping it to around 3000 rpm you get pops and crackles which was a surprise as thought they had to do away with that?
Anyway that’s enough from me for the moment, I’ve got to pop out for some milk 😂

I know I’m still taking things easy and all that, but quite happy with this mpg, (real world I assume it’s about 24 ?), not trying to be fuel efficient as moving along in traffic I do tend give it more throttle than I should, just to hear a bit of that sweet purr of the V8 😁, the quicker I get out of this taking it easy mindset the better, didn’t get a V8 to worry about mpg 😂
