A few Cosmetic Changes
I added and deleted a few items to the car so thought it was time to share with pics. We ordered the Farallon Black color sight unseen. Spent many months waiting for delivery with great apprehension that it would look navy blue. Nope. It is downright beautiful! The sunshine makes it so special, and the rest of the time it is jet black. Happy. Have had the car 6 months now.
Changes: Replaced the front bevel from steel colored to black. Added mudflaps all around. Tinted front windows. Painted the license plate plastic area with gloss black. Took off back emblems and had only "Jaguar" and the leaper attached back on in shiny black. Guess we went into stealth mode! The biggest problem with that is I have had other cars get in real close to the back, move to the side, then back to behind me. They are clearly trying to see what kind of car it is!
Had many issues with the SOTA, but persevered until I finally achieved it. Had received the email saying it was coming and what to do to prepare. Never got another email that it was ready. Thanks to this forum, I knew it was "out there". Done.
Going into service tomorrow for common issues - back up camera not always working, etc. Knew I was part of the Beta testers (first year owner) when we made the decision to purchase. No major issues. I can say I LOVE this car. Hope the love affair stays!
Sorry about the sideways pic, not sure how to right it!
