Not to worry Mike.
Ah, if that is the case then I am at a loss as to what else it could be. I suppose an investigation from a Jaguar dealer would be the only other option I could think of. Sorry. :oops:

Random question Mike.
I know the app shows the windows as being closed but, do all the windows work on the one shot opening and closing?
I don't know if reprogramming them would solve the issue, but at least it might help eliminate them as the cause of the problem.
Thanks for your prompt response. Yes, they all work. The app tries to start the car but times-out telling me the vehicle is not secure. When i check the Security screen, the vehicle is alarmed and doors, windows. bonnet and boot are all shown as closed. (Sorry for the delay in responding, i was expecting an alert when there was a response, but didn't get one. I've now found the notifications button ;)
I had a similar thing a while back, it sorted itself out one day after I'd cleaned the windows. I opened them all a bit to clean the top inch of the glass and after closing them again the app starts the car every time. I'm guessing one window was slightly ajar but not by enough to show on the app.

Just a thought that this thread is entitled "minor quirks and annoyances", the emphasis being minor.
As in things that are on the car that could be improved and suchlike.
Specific faults and issues may well get a better response if posted under the relevant topic heading in the main faults section.

I’ve just bought a 20 MY 300 HSE and find in town driving I am on the brakes the whole time as the car seems to hold on to revs and takes an age to slow down when release the accelerator, is this normal or something I will get used to? I normally use the eco setting and this time of year like the heated seats on, every time I get in the car I have to select eco and then reset the heated seats to on, can I get the car to remember these are my default preferences?

Welcome aboard!

The petrol engines do rev quite highly for a minute or so from cold, but they soon settle down.

As far as I know, there is no way to change the startup settings, for eco mode and so on.

Just wait until you can get out on the real roads, and try it in big grin mode :lol:

I'm not sure that Eco makes any significant difference, to be honest. There are functions of the car that it limits; infotainment output, ventilation etc but these have minimal impact on mpg. I just put mine in dynamic and adjust velocity using the throttle, and rarely have to touch the brakes as it'll slow down very well if planned correctly.

Not having some sort of factory fitted protector to stop the road rash on the rear sill flare.

Putting the wipers in their Service position is a bit of a faff and you can't leave them without having the ignition on.
On an Audi I previously owned, once the wipers were in their Service position, you could turn the ignition off and leave the wipers in that position indefinitely, very handy in winter.

Thanks, I’ve been driving diesels for the last 10 years, hopefully my driving style will adjust over time

My previous Xe was the 500nm twin turbo diesel, and I have to say the P300 still surprises me with its torque. Going up hills in 8th gear at 1100rpm never gets old :)
