Anyone familiar with the ILLUMINATED Jag grill badge?

On p. 46 of the i-Pace brochure an "Illuminated Jaguar Front Grille Badge" is offered. Dealer still has no idea on this (pricing, factory or dealer installed, always on or not?). Anyone else here interested in this or know more about it?

The brochure does say that it's dealer-installed. Other than that, I know nothing.

It is a dealer installed option or you can do it your self.
However, It cannot be used on vehicles that have ACC (Adaptive Cruise Control) namely HSE models.
The sensors for the ACC are behind the Growler on models equipped.
Its a very easy install but it does not stay illuminated all the time, just for a few minutes after startup.
There is an empty plug-in spot in the front wiring harness.

Are you a dealer? Perhaps you should be

Some I-Pace 'S' models also have ACC - mine, for one.

Not a dealer, just a 'car guy'
Yes, any vehicle with ACC cannot use the illuminated Growler.
But if you want to bling out your I-Pace, you can go with these illuminated center caps for the wheels:

They use the same principal as the Rolls-Royce center caps; ball bearings keep the Growler upright at all times.

That is one of those things that looks cool on paper, but actually looks pretty douchey IRL. See Mercedes lighted star

Thanks. I have the HSE (on order), so I guess I'll live without, but at least I can stop wondering.


Agree with Pseudonym, the illuminated center hubcaps are too much 'bling' for me. I'll stick to my illuminated running boards and customizable interior lighting.

The projected Jaguar approach lights are also pretty blingy.

On many cars you can tell if it's ACC equipped by the grill badge. If it's smooth uniform plastic, it's ACC. If it has texture or is metal/chromed it's not. That's where everybody is putting the RADAR unit. Cars without ACC don't need RADAR.

Are you talking about the ground light near the door at night? Yeah, it's blingy but sort of handy to avoid stepping in crud before getting in the car at night, like oil, hot sauce, used condoms, etc.
Wait. I don't live in that neighborhood anymore... WOO HOO!
