I am pleased to introduce all of you to my beautiful new R-Sport! The Italian Racing Red is indeed a showstopper!! I am thrilled to have it safely ensconced in my garage, after 4 months of nervously waiting to see if the car that I ordered would be the same one that was delivered.

The technology concierge who walked me through some of the features of my car commented on how much more sophisticated the tow feature is on the newer cars than the 2016 F-Paces that she has been in, and on how much better the cameras are, especially the ones that face rear. Just FYI.

I take El Jefe into Capitol Shine for XPel and Ceramic Pro treatments on Monday, thanks to BPMBA's recommendation. The Jaguar manager told me that I was making a mistake not having them do their paint protection package instead, (and I was tempted since it was half the price) but at the end of the day I just said "no, thank you." At that point I was so pissed with the dealership that I just wanted to get the **** out of there before I threw something. IMG_3834.jpg

Gorgeous....love seeing another happy face! Nice touch with the black pack too. I was unsure what was going on when you posted on another thread about dealer problems. What do you mean about the tow package? How could it be more sophisticated?

Since I have not seen the tow package on earlier cars, I don't know what to compare it to, so I am not sure specifically what she was referencing. Apparently in her Jaguar class they discussed the Tow feature technology was to be improved.

it's about time! Gorgeous car. What was that you drove to the first meet-up? A white Audi sedan? How different does your F-Pace feel?

*CONGRATULATIONS* DrivingMrAsher !!! I will definitely have to agree with you 100% that your IRR R-Sport is a *SHOW STOPPER* , but I also have to point out that *GR* almost didn't even notice your F-Pace in the first photo , because he was too busy checking YOU out , in your *ShowStopper* Black Slacks Black Heels & Black Leather Jacket !!! ;) Very Nice Ensemble Yound Lady !!! :)
You and Your F-Pace make a PURRRRRRFECT PAIR !!! >:)

Now , back to the BUSINESS at hand , Your F-PACE !!! Lady , you made some *AWESOME* choices on this one !!! The IRR , the Black Package , the Ebony Jet Interior , and of course those *BADA$$ 20" GREY & DIAMOND TURNED 5-SPOKE BLADES* !!! Job Well Done , My Friend !!! Job Well Done Indeed !!! It is *ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS* !!! We can't wait to see that BAD BOY Up Close and Personal at the Harrisburg MEET in April !!! And I assume you will be bringing that *BIG BRIGHT SHINING SMILE* with you to the Meet , as I am almost positive you won't be able to wipe it off your face before then !!! And for good reason !!! >:)
Now get out there and ENJOY every minute in it , and we shall see you soon !!! :)

Yes, indeed, that is a positive turn of events in our favor.

Maybe consider finishing the look with red calipers?
I had planned on putting red calipers on when I was getting the Ammo Grey, as I felt it needed some flare. But, the Italian Racing Red has so much flare, that red calipers would be overkill IMHO.

Don't worry DrivingMrAsher ! In this reference , "sick" is GOOD ! ;)
Thanks for translating GRVR. But, even I know that "sick" means really good when used in a sentence like this :D
