Replacement FPace S
So finally got the replacement FPace S today. Silcon Silver with the black/gray 22 all season tires. And that folks is the first comment. WOW. The different in the ride quality on all season tires vs. those z rated 22 inch sport tires (which were not an option to change back when it was ordered the original car in Jan 2017) is a revelation. I'm in shock. I thought, yeah, ok, the car will be new but probably still have a bunch of problems.
There is so much better in this car I can't even believe it. Fit, finish, electronics, heck - the stereo is louder which always made me wonder about the old one, the ride, the engine - no more sounding like a ticking time bomb. I still think the interior is so-so in quality(I got the black/ivory combo this time) but it just looks better than the 2017 car.
For $80K it should be great, and so far - only a few hours, it's stunning. I'll post some pics later. To Jaguar, I say thank you for doing what you did. Replacing a car is a big deal to anyone and while it took a while and they were gracious enough to allow me to get a 2018 I have to thank someone. Now, if you could please do something about the 6000 cars on hold in the UK awaiting delivery - our 2017 RR Supercharged ordered in December '16 and was supposed to arrive in March '17 is still "offline". But I digress. At least the Fpace is finally what it should have been.
