Picking up my R-Sport 180 auto tomorrow morning. Pretty excited, I've spent the last 48 hours trawling through the forum reading various topics, looks like I'm going to spend an age learning to use all the features on the car.

Enjoy! Had mine a month now and love it more all the time. I do find rear visibility a bit poor (thankfully this one has a camera) and I’m finding a few stone chips on the sills ahead of the rear wheel arch (have bought clear film to try and combat this)

Haha yeah, but unlike me you already have a Jaguar! I'm trundling around in a snubnosed Fiesta. The other day I was walking out of the co-op and across the carpark thinking about my Jaguar, then got momentarily confused to find 'someone' had parked a bloody Fiesta where I could have sworn I'd parked! :lol:

:lol: :lol: Ahh but the pleasure you will get from your upgrade will be even bigger and better than mine. I'm hoping no more than 10 weeks now provided there are enough JLR guys to build it :cry:

Lol well should definitely be March, but I expect the dealers will have a few to do PDIs on for then so it all depends where luck puts us in the queue.
