White 19 HSE arrived at 17:15 18 April 19 having been shipped from dealer in GA. Sienna tan seats.

I was going to purchase it last month but after striking a deal, the dealer told me the car was recalled for "sacrificial canisters" (crash related items behind the front bumper skin). They had to get parts and fix it before they could sell it. As of this posting, I haven't found any recall notice registered with NHTSA.

It worked out to my favor as the Jaguar discount offer went from $3000 to $5000. :smile2:

I also got a Juicenet Pro 40 charger and it worked fine in a test.

It's been 1 year as of today that mine was delivered to me. The car transport driver said he noticed a lot of head turnings by people trying to see what he was transporting from GA to OH.

I went through the software upgrades, recalls, etc., using two different dealerships. No complaints about either of them. The longer software update took nearly a week to force 19B into the car since SOTA didn't work. SOTA did work for 19C after that.

The only unique-to-this-car repair has been the little air deflector on the underside of the car forward of the left rear wheel. It came loose, rubbed on the tire, and wore off the end of it. It wouldn't stay in place. Dealer replaced under warranty but that came loose too. I tried a repair but that too was short lived. Finally, I put a plastic rivet in it on the outboard side (I posted about this) and that is a permanent solution. Later, looking at the parts diagram, I found that there are some missing clips for this piece so that explains why it didn't stay in place.

Additions to the car that didn't come with it: Cravenspeed front license plate holder, Weathertech floor mats (even though I have the Jaguar rubber & carpet mats) and Lampgards, Click & Go hooks and hanger (I have Click & Go base built into the seats), mud flaps front and rear, cargo area rails, luggage retention kit, warning triangle, roof shade, quilted load space liner (not always installed) and bumper protector.

Charging has been predominantly at Chargepoint chargers (mostly at 50kW chargers), with lesser charging at EvGo, and a few times at Electrify America. I've charged at home with the now older model JuiceBox Pro 40 without issues. I did validate that the Jaguar provided charger works, The plastic bag it comes in was too flimsy for any daily (or occasional use) so I have in an inexpensive 12-inch tool bag from Harbor Freight. A 15-inch tool bag also works without being too big. They both fit in the frunk.

I've been asked about it quite a bit with one woman following me into a business just to ask questions. Everyone who has been in the car loved it too and were impressed by its fit, finish and acceleration.

It has been a good choice for me. I've got 15,435 smiles, oops, I mean miles on it as of this typing. :)

It's been three years now. My how time rolls on.

It's been 34,505 (s)miles of enjoyment.

I took off the Cravenspeed license plate holder when I no longer needed to have a front plate displayed. I added 12V emergency supply cable but haven't had a need to use it.

Charging has continued to be predominantly ChargePoint DCFC, with Electrify America on long trips. Home charging predominantly with Juicebox Pro 40 and some ChargePoint Home Flex.

No major issues since the post above.

One flat tyre (in my own garage!) due to picking up a loose screw from somewhere. :( I had to replace the tyre due to the location of the puncture at the outer edge of the tread.

Many more "nice car" comments from spectators. They continue to this day.

And I've made a few more posts here at this site.

I too am at three years. One year of I-Pace 1, two years of I-Pace 2. 25K miles total (17 on the current one).

I got my annual ceramic coat renewal today. I usually beat up my cars by just using them, but the I-Pace will retain its value because it's a unique and extremely well-engineered car, of which (unfortunately) too few have been sold ... so I will pamper it to the best of my abilities.

Thank you @Ayepace for all your contributions here, undoubtedly made more constructive by the fact that you have had few issues with yours and are a happy camper with it. I hope you will keep your kitty for a long time so that all of us can keep benefiting from your incredible depth of knowledge of the car and your creativity in finding solutions that work for all of us!

Surprisingly I haven't done anything to it and it has been fine. (Now probably jinxed it having typed that.) Mother Nature has added about 4 inches of water to everything around here just this week so far, though.
