Smile New ride for the wife

I had a thread on here a week or so ago asking about the Jaguar F-Pace. Well we went to Austin Tuesday to "look" at them. Wife walks in and sees this bad boy on the show room floor. About 2 1/2 hours later we were headed home with it.

This is projected on the ground at night from the mirrors, I thought it was pretty cool.

With just a little running around town it is getting over 26mpg and the little diesel engine is smooth as silk and has plenty of power. I am itching to take a road trip and see what the MPG numbers will be. The sticker said 33 hwy.

The wife is happy, so life is good right now.

Nice looking vehicle.

I've heard a lot of good things about Jaguar and Range Rover ever since Tata Motors bought them from Ford back in 2008.

I'm all about American and like Ford, but both those brands suffered quality control issues under Ford ownership.

Will have a hitch installed, was not going to pay the dealership $2,400.00 to install one when I can get it done for $300.00 or less

Looks good. Is the gap where the hood and grill meet above the right headlight wider than everywhere else?

Ok, so I didn't notice that in the pics, and it freaked me out when you pointed it out. I just went out and looked and it is even, so I guess it was just something about the pic that makes it look that way.

That's good, just thought you should check that out to be sure it was good before too much time has passed.

When I first read the comment I was like ok he is just jacking with me, then I saw it was a admin guy who I kind of know but didn't think an admin person would throw out a joke like that, so back to the top to look at the pic....... panic sets in and I run to the garage. LOL

It would have been a good " made ya look " thing.

That is a good question, but as I see it, the wife and I love going to the oasis restaurant so that coupled with the fact that they will give us a loaner while it is being serviced is a win/win for us, so we will take it back to Austin for service.
