Just picked up my new baby on Saturday in Dallas and drove her back home to Houston. She's a beauty, and I love driving her. She is not 100% what I would have built (I wanted Brogue interior), but I did not want to wait.

I started this car buying adventure looking at X5, Q7, and RRS. I wasn't even looking at the F-PACE, but I saw one in person at the Jaguar/Land Rover dealership, and there was no going back. Thank goodness for dumb luck.

Looks exactly like mine, except I had the black wheels painted silver. But yours is identical to mine when I picked it up. Welcome to the very exclusive F-pace club, and the even more exclusive Ultimate black metallic F-pace club (not sure if thats the metallic paint or not) :D

Sorry for the delay - I've been off the grid for a while.

No, Paul was my sales guy. He was exactly the type of salesperson I like (he answered the questions I asked quickly and without a lot of salesperson-speak), so we will definitely go back to him for our next Jaguar (which I hope is an F-TYPE). :D

nicmcv- From what part of Houston do hail? I'm in Huffman. Have had my new F-Pace for a month now and have not seen another one on the road.

BTW: have only dealt with the Service Dept once, but I'd recommend Jaguar/Land Rover Houston North (I-45 North) for service if you're anywhere close.

Hey there! I'm in The Woodlands, and I hadn't seen too many others until about a month ago. Now I've seen white, silver, green, and another black. Eek - I liked being unique!

Thanks for the service recommendation. I will certainly be using them as they are close to me. I didn't have luck trying to buy there, but I think that's more due to the specifics of what I wanted.

Happy Motoring - I am at almost 5000 miles already!

Agreed with Darden. Those people at North treated u better than the ones from Central and Southwest. Though they are all same company (Sonic). Happened to me when purchasing my FPS last weekend. Urgh!

It was not really price (although they did deal). It was a specific combination of features that I wanted. The dealer here didn't seem to want to look for anything. They would just say 'Hey, we've got a new one in' and send me an email or call. Nothing even close to what I wanted, so I got tired of it. I compared it to a vegetarian asking for food, and all they would offer was a big steak. "But it's food!" And for the record, I'm a carnivore and would have taken the steak.

I started looking elsewhere for what I wanted and found almost an exact match in Big D. I did give the dealer here a chance to either get that car here or find something similar, but they did nothing (over two weeks of me not contacting the dealer in Dallas after finding my car to give the dealer here a chance). So, I really felt I had no choice but to buy there.

And one other annoyance of this car buying process here was that I explicitly asked them to email me information and not call me. I repeatedly asked this every call I got. I probably received 20 phone calls from them - some in reply to an email from me. I like things in writing, and i don't have time to talk on the phone.
