Good luck with the new car , looks lovely!
Remember the disklock and OBD Portector
I have the faraday bags .... just need to sort the lock out now I know the steering wheel size.
Now don’t get me wrong ..... I loved my F-Pace, it wasn’t slow but it never really felt scary. This Stinger had the back twitching going down an on ramp to the M11, and gave me a massive smile on my face, as I was only at 55mph at 3/4 throttle! (In sport mode).
I then realised how much I miss rear wheel drive! I’ve not had one for 5 years, and they are a hoot!
The best time(s) I had in my F-Pace were when people underestimated its power/torque. One time a Golf GTI tried to take me on an on ramp In Manchester.... he’d been a dick on the roundabout and was tailgating all the way through the single lane. As he tried to pass once it opened up to a double lane, I dropped a gear and floored it .... leaving him in my rear mirrors. I stopped accelerating at 90-95mph, and after a mile or two he overtook me doing 110ish. Still his face was priceless
Only had 3 drives in the Stinger .... still breaking her in ... not done full throttle but have been over the 4000rmp a few times .... it’s very easy even at half gas to do it
Back to the I-Pace ... I never had an issue with my F so I’d buy one if I could, however I want 150kw charging (not 100) and a few other changes that will come with Model updates in years to come, so I can wait for now .... but still feel it’s the best high end SUV out there at the moment, but the Leaf is the best value.
So if the wife keeps our 2010 Audi A3 that we brought as a run around while the insurance came through for he Jag, for a year, then I might suggest we trade in for a Leaf, as it will be perfect for that role.
