What courtesy car did you get?

Post by Dec_mcginn » Sat Feb 18, 2017 6:19 pm

So my F-Pace went in yesterday for a software update. I was surprised to hear that it would take a few hours so I asked for a courtesy car.
I was a bit cheeky and asked for a nice one given that I have the supercharged F-Pace so they said they'd try to get me an F-Type.
The trouble is, they didn't have one registered at the dealership (Beadles, Sidcup) so they had to get one sent to them.
I was pretty happy when they handed over the key to this:

Just handed it back this evening after a day roaring through Sussex and Kent. Awesome!

Lucky you!! I'm jealous. I specifically asked for an f type on two separate occasions before arriving at the dealership for my update . They said there had been a misunderstanding and thought I had said an f pace, they then gave me an xf! On top of this the update seems to have added a couple of extra faults onto the few faults I already had. I must admit I wasn't surprised. Still love the car.

Yeah I was incredibly lucky to get the SVR.
I was very surprised at how easy it was to drive - it didn't try to kill me even once!

The only major issue I had pre- software update was temperamental parking sensors so time will tell I guess. So far so good, though.

I was loaned an XJL for a month then an F-Type 'S' AWD for a week whilst waiting for my car to be built - Both awesome cars in totally different ways!

Bet some fun was had in the SVR

Once I got an XE, but all other times I get an manual Mini with Jaguar stickers all over the car.Mini basic version of course.
All times the fuel tank have been empty and I have had the Mini allot.

It seems it's better to own Jaguar in UK. Avoid in rest of Europa, that is what I have found out the hard way.

Crikey, that's terrible. I don't know what else to say, quite dreadful.

One of the staff pool XE 2.0d for me.... along with empty Starbucks cup, hotel receipts and two weeks worth of road grime :roll:

When they said that they needed it for at least a week, I complained and eventually.... and we're talking 2-3 days of chasing.... they got me an F Pace with squeaky rear springs - the service guy said 'you'll get to know what the squeaky rear springs sound like'.... as if I should feel somehow pleased about this wonderful opportunity. :shock:

My local dealer is awesome. :cry:
