Hi Chip

I started a new thread on Engine Stop/Start : http://www.f-typeclub.com/forums/Thread-Engine-Stop-Start
Chip said:
Please give us a review with your "thoughts" of your new F-Type! Does the eco stop kill the engine every time you stop?
The stop/start feature, my inability to find an accessory mode to just use the cars electronics when I am parked, and the "dropping" of active blue-tooth cell phone calls when I hit the stop button are my three (3) issues to date. I touch on all of them in my new post.

With the above said I love this care pure fun and driving pleasure.

My only regret about delivery I wish that Jaguar had an extensive EU delivery program for example my dream would to pick up my car in say Salzberg attend a Jaguar Track Day program then tool around Europe a bit (pdf, vid).

Pressing the 'start' button with your foot NOT on the brake turns on the ignition but not the engine. Think it only stays on for something like 5 minutes though. But you can play with the radio, nav system, etc. FYI, the base audio system has a 10-CD 'hard drive'. The ignition would shut off if I tried to rip a CD with the engine was off, so I had to do it while I was driving.

At last!




(And I like the Eco thing except that if you have AC running it restarts the car at the stoplight after only 15 secs or so.)

Hang in there, I fell sorry for you right know.

If it's any consolation I swear to God my little baby base V6 seems to get faster every week (I know I'm crazy stupid thinking this) but this car starts out great then it keeps grows on you. Jaguar totally nailed it.

My only grip is the stupid 'ECO' stop/stop thing and lack of an accessory mode (the damn car keeps starting when I am waiting to pick up my daughter and just trying listen to music) but that's trivial on the scale of things.

Maybe in a month when you calm down we can meet for cars -n- coffee.

Cheers

Congrats !!!! SoCal Dave!!! Enjoy.

I was asked for the part number on the Bright Red Jeweled Wheel Center caps:

MJB6249AA

They are $55 each from Jag and I saw somebody on ebay had them for cheaper.

DJS, really great pictures they look very professional. I know keeping it clean is the only way to enjoy the car properly ( I fight coastal fog/drizzle ). Maybe when I get 5K miles I will switch back to my old sedan and leave the F-type in the garage when the weather is iffy.

But just like you [DJS] I need to 'pose' my car and take a few really good shots with a real camera instead of my iPhone.

SoCal, Did you pick up your car? Great to see everyone in this thread getting theirs - can't wait to see yours.

I got past the first 1,200 miles the car is outstanding to drive, however due to the NSA data collection activities I refuse to say what the top end speed I hit out in the desert two days ago.:dodgy:

I have nearly 3,000 miles on mine after a trip to the Midwest. I find the iPhone just can't capture the Salsa Red. I leave my Nikon D90 set to 'vivid' colors, and that seems to work pretty well. It's a striking color!

Boy, those wheels take a lot of cleaning.

RE: Delivery Dates delayed - AUSTRALIA - WTF

I have just heard that my V6S jag which was due into port in Australia last Friday and for delivery next week is still in the UK, having just left the plant!!!

That's about 2 months late.

Due to some uspecified hold-up on one of the spec'd items

what really annoys is that it's a surprise to me and the dealer and I suspect Jag Australia as the dates were not updated in Jags internal system VISTA

which makes you wonder what the point of VISTA is

eta in port Aust is now late Nov, at which time I will be O/S for a month having scheduled that trip around the Jag delivery...

If you're in OZ I'd suggest call your dealer and get them to confirm your date.

NOT HAPPY :mad::mad::mad:
