Hello everyone. New to F-Pace ownership. New to the Forum. Previously owned a 2011 XF and a 2015 XF. Glad to be here.

Any tips or hints to throw my way while I get used to my new ride?

The single biggest "fix" to enjoying your F-Pace is getting the tire pressures down to 34-36 psi (mas o menos). The dealer will give you the car with more pressure in the tires, and will return it from a service trip with the same issue. Every time.
You'll want to adjust the TPS tire monitoring levels down to "light load" when you do that.
Enjoy the buttery smoothness

WOW- what a difference, I tried this and the difference is amazing from 45 down to 35!
changed in the setting to low load thought not sure what changes that makes.
thanks the idea, sometimes the smallest things make the biggest diffference.

It sets the optimal pressure for that loading, so that when you lose pressure, the warning is illuminated.
Conversely, the normal load setting will trigger the low pressure warning light at a higher pressure.

Welcome POPS. Just two tips. Use a special whitening toothpaste because you will have a smile from ear to ear when you think about your F-Pace, go to get in it, driving anywhere and when you get out. The second tip is to replace your avatar with something uncontroversial like, say, the Red Wings logo, or even something to do with your new vehicle........ Enjoy it, and congratulations.

Welcome to the forum!

Note that you should get lots of wax (or maybe even some sort of ceramic coating) on your finish asap as the factory paint seems soft and likes to scratch easy.

Iím pretty sure the dealer prep is more of something that makes her shiney than actual protection too. Iím glad I caught on early to this on mine!
