New F Pace arrived

Post by FP Steve B » Mon Dec 03, 2018 3:15 pm

My new F Pace 3ltr diesel has arrived & I picked it up from the dealer in Norwich a couple of days ago, I attach a couple of pics. Pity it was raining but I did coat it in the polish the next dry day!

I've only done about 260 miles but I'm getting around the same mpg as my Discovery Sport (I am driving in Eco mode & not more than 60mph for the first 500 miles).

It seems very smooth & well put together; the only small adjustments that I need seem to be the bonnet, as you need to be firm on shutting it & the drivers side washers, that squirt a bit low on the windscreen. 8-)

Not really relevant, but as an ex VXR8 (HSV Clubsport) E1 6.2 LS3 owner for 5yrs, I thought I should nod respectfully in your direction.

Crap pic, but....

Nice looking F Pace! You must be very excited and very chuffed!

I find the fuel economy of my 3.0d really improved a lot after the running in period. A short trip today 15-30 mph around town gave over 37 mpg which is identical to the average on the Fiat 500 runaround we have which spends its life in London traffic. Not bad at all for a beefy engine and a delight to drive. Enjoy!!

Don’t see many in (Heron?) white. 8-)

Walky exhaust? Mine had a Magnaflow cat-back (unusual in the UK) - sounded epic.

Sorry to wander off thread - nice FP :)
