Wow! I really can't say enough about how well Jag of North Scottsdale is behaving through all this. Without batting an eyelash and with complete understanding of my position & feelings, they are already starting the process of unwinding the first sale, and offered me a choice of 2 other new I-Paces (both HSE's and with the light oyster interior we need in AZ). One they had today with fewer options (and cheaper), or one (the one I picked) which they are expecting in 2 weeks and which is, in fact, in the Caesium Blue I actually prefer. We will speak more tomorrow about officially unwinding the sale, but they are completely comfortable working to make it right.
I do really appreciate all the comments & suggestions from you all. It helped me navigate a situation I've never had before. I had my position clearly in my mind: (Prior to Norwegian's comment above!) I felt that this couldn't be a widespread problem as nobody had claimed similar symptoms. So, I still wanted an I-Pace. But, they were about to ask me to have major organ replacement surgery done on my brand new car by somebody who was basically fresh out of Med School. And, it would never really feel like a "new" car again. And, the shaking it was doing felt like it would be loosening every screw & weld in the car. I had just bought (I believe) the most expensive car on their lot, and I wanted one that I could keep "perfect" for a long time as I always do with my cars.
I was so ready for an argument ... But, I didn't get one. Not in the slightest. (No "abuse" either because arguments are down the hall!) They were perfectly willing to do whatever I wanted that was within their control to do. I texted my salesman last night that I didn't hold THEM at fault for "the problem" - but what was theirs to control was the solution. And, he brightened my day with one phone call. I don't get my new car for a couple weeks, but I have a loaner to use until then.
Not sure what will be involved in unwinding all the financing, licensing, registration, etc ... but we'll start that tomorrow as it was too late in the day today.
So, I have to say that I'm pleased with the resolution and the attitudes of everybody I dealt with there. And, feeling very lucky to have dodged a problem car. Now THEY can take as long as they like to fix it.
I did drive a car without the Adaptive Dynamics & ASI - and I felt like I was feeling the bumps more. Might have been my imagination, but I didn't think it was as smooth as my 1st Edition. So, I opted to wait a couple weeks for the better equipped Blue HSE.
So, my question - anybody got any idea what I will miss that's ONLY available from a 1st Edition (besides the paint)?
