I just bought the 2020 model. I love everything about it except the badging and rims. I would like to black out the chrome badging and change the rims (see photo). I know that Jag offers a gloss black 22inch rim package but I don't want to go with that. I would like to stay with the 20Inch. I appreciate the help and am glad to join this forum.

What’s an Autobiography F-PACE ? is that a UK thing. The only way I know to get the chrome around the windows black is order the black pack option... since that’s not an option I would have the chrome wrapped in gloss black 3M vinyl , you could have it removed and painted, however the large C shape Trim around the quarter glass comes with a new quarter glass window, meaning it doesn’t come off like the rest. The badges you can order factory black ones or paint the ones you have. On the wheels you can have them wrapped or painted. I look forward to the finished look.

Welcome to the forum. If you look under the sub forum Wheels, Tires, Brakes and Suspension you may find some of the answers you are looking for. Some of the others will be under Exterior sub forum and the other place to look is in the Modifications and Customization forum. Good luck with your vehicle. @DPinTX he's in Canada not the UK and I'm sure there are different options there.

If you like the looks of those rims I'd simply powder coat them the color you want. It will be the cheapest option. You could also either wrap or paint the window surround, room rails and side grills. And to finish it the Jaguar leaper and trim in the back can be ordered in gloss black or flat black online at Amazon.

I have a 2018 Portfolio (same as the Autograph, I think), and also didn't care for the silver window trim, wheels, and side vents. I had the dealer replace the side vents with gloss black OEM replacements at delivery (cheaper than what the dipping cost would have been, and better result), had the window trim wrapped in black vinyl, and replaced the wheels with 20" helix replicas. I left the roof rails, front grill, and badges alone, to leave it with more of a first edition look from front and rear. Here's the result:

@Hoopics thank you for this. I had to make a correction to my thread. My F-Pace is also a 'Portfolio' not an autobiography (too many models, ugh). Anyway, I love what you did with yours and I am incorporating some of your ideas into my modifications. I will let you know how it turns out.

I have completed my modifications. They are as follows:


I replaced the tires/rims with a 21" Niche gloss black rims with all weather (winter rated) toyo tires. I had all the badging painted gloss black including room rails and window trim.

Looks great - did you need to remove the badging to have it painted?
@isuzorro I did. it wasn't that bad. to get all that trim painted (roof rails, window trim, badging, grill and brake calipers) it cost $2200 CDN

Looks like it all went back on perfectly, so nice work and the black and white look is nice. Any difference in ride quality with the 21s vs the 20? I don't imagine it would be much of a ride difference.

@isuzorro no difference at all. I chose an allweather (snow rated) tire so that I don't have to switch out summer/winter tires every fall/spring. It doesn't offer the same grip as full winter tire but it is close.

Did you just use the hot water,fishing line, goo-gone method to remove them? Also how'd you get them back on in exactly the right spot? Haha, I should probably pay someone, not sure I have the skills for such precision.

@isuzorro your questions are precisely why i paid someone. I am not sure how they removed them. I just know that they are a professional auto body shop that has painted badgings and trim before.

I haven't noticed any difference at all. I am curious about winter driving though.
