Post by 1stjag4me » Fri Jan 19, 2018 8:03 pm

Hi all

Placed an order for a Jaguar XE 2.0 deisel (180ps) in Caldera Red from Lancaster Reading. Extras;

Pro navigation pack
Privacy glass
Parking pack
Auto dimming power fold wing mirrors

Moving from a Honda HRV (2016 model) 1.6 deisel. Always wanted a Jaguar ever since the XJS.

picked my xe up 4 weeks ago from Lancaster Reading - loving it so far.

Not normally a fan or red cars but think the XE looks quite good in it ( I still went for caesium blue though)

What was the handover like RedAndBlue?

I would've gone for Cesium Blue but I hate paying extra for paint!

Sorry missed your question!

I thought handover was good. Did the whole presentation in the Hanover bay and spun the car on the turn table, keys with key rings in a nice presentation box and flowers and chocolates for the missus. They gave me a basic run through of the controls etc and call them if any issues. I didn’t want to spend too long on the handover as wanted to drive the car and prefer to sit and play with controls and manual in my own time on the drive. Still loving the car, ride and handling are fantastic. I love the technology but then I moved up from a 9 year old a3 and the tech has come a long way in that time

I don't know what to make of the whole red satin cover thing on handover. The turntable is a good idea though. Missus was badgering the salesman for one of the ride on baby Jag's for our little one so will be interesting to see if they throw one in!

Slightly off topic but when I traded my MG Maestro in for a Rover I went back a few days later to see my MG on a turntable with flood lighting on it. I should have bought it back it looked so good displayed like that.

I've asked for a May 2018 delivery to coincide with my current Honda HRV lease car being returned. Had an update from the dealer yesterday saying they are expecting it to be ready in April 2018.

Hi All
Glad I found this forum.
Ordered my first Jaguar from Beadles Watford in December
2.0 PETROL Prestige
Firenza Red
Parking Pack
Meridian Sound System
Alloy space saver wheel (hate the gunge packs they give as standard)
18'' 5 spoke style 5030
Parking pack
Auto-Dimming, Power Fold, Heated door mirrors with Approach Lights
The car is due end of April.
Yesterday I arraigned the factory trip which the dealer is going to pay for. Will be a good run to take the cat back to where it was born.
Never been on a car test drive where I have been left shaking with adrenaline and excitement.
Can't wait. only 55 sleeps to go!!
