Not a manual, but here are the User Guide and videos, some of which are useful...

So glad you posted the owner's guide link. I read/watched most of the information last night. My F Type (V8S) will be built on Wed with an Aug delivery date. I like to read the owner's manuals prior to taking delivery of a new car brand. This will be my first Jag.

I find the Owner's Manual a bit lacking in detail. But I certainly discovered a few things I didn't know about, so it's definitely worth going through the whole thing.

Hi Dave,

Thank you for your post.

I am not sure if I can get the full manual in PDF form but once you have your vehicle if you PM me the VIN I will see what I can do.

Many Thanks

Mike

Hi Mike,
My dealer is looking into this, but might as well ask you too: what is the 'stealth mode', that is selected on the touch screen, under 'extra features'? It isn't mentioned in the manual.

I was hoping perhaps that it would be a way to start the engine quietly, without waking the neighborhood. I haven't test that yet, but I didn't see any obvious difference when I turned stealth mode on.

Also, my dealer hasn't heard anything from Jaguar yet on the issue of the lockable rear compartment sometimes falling open when the car is locked. I don't consider it urgent, but I do hope that Jaguar looks into that as it's a bit annoying. I've seen a few other people mention that issue.

Thanks! Picked up my V6S a week ago and I'm loving it.

Mike:

Once I have the car, I wont need the pdf of course because I will have the manual in my hands! I too want to know what stealth mode is. Any reason these cant just be posted publicly?

And...Is there a definitive answer as to whether there is a recommended engine break in period and if so, how many miles are specified?

Thanks,
Dave
P.S. My ship arrived at Port Hueneme last night. Will be leaving today so I know

Hi Dave,

Stealth Mode dims the interior lights for example the centre console lights.

Lots of information which will be in your handbook you will find on our website, please see link below.

http://userguides.jaguar.co.uk/gb/en/f-type/

The recommended break in period is 2000 miles. Once your vehicle is delivered within the hand book there will be a leaflet with all of this information on.

Hope this helps.

Many Thanks

Mike

Hi Mike,
I spent a while this morning going through the US manual, and I couldn't find anything relating to break-in period.

What's recommended for the break-in? No hard starts? Keep the revs below some number?

Thanks.

Hello,

It should be in your handbook under "Maintenance" but if not please see the information below:

During this Running-in period of 3,000 km
(2,000 miles) you should:
• Avoid frequent cold starts followed by
short-distance driving.
• Preferably take longer trips.
• Do not use full throttle during starts and
normal driving.
• Avoid continuous operation at high engine
speed and abrupt stops.
• Do not participate in track days, sports
driving schools or similar.
In addition specifically up to 2,000 km (1,200
miles):
• Drive at varying engine and road speeds,
but do not exceed an engine speed of 4500
rpm (revolutions per minute) and a road
speed of 170 km/h (105 mph).

From 2,000 km (1,200 miles) to 3,000 km
(2,000 miles):
• Engine and road speeds can be increased
gradually.
• Engine speeds in excess of 5000rpm
should only be used briefly e.g. when
overtaking.

Hope this helps.

Many Thanks

Mike
