Looks different from Firenze that I have seen, I was initially going to have mine in Firenze but it just didn't look like that. Maybe it is the unusual experience of seeing it in the sun that makes the difference lol

It looks a pinker red which I prefer, Firenze has always looked slightly duller to me, when I first saw an iPace in Firenze in the flesh in the UK I changed my order ;)

Symos is right! Firenze Red! It looks so different from different angles (with an iPhone camera!). If you look at DocHudson’s posts above mine, our cars are the same body color and both with PPF.
If you look at some of my other posts, the PPF didn’t really make much of a difference. Angle of the Texas sun is a big differentiator. Dirt and installation smudges too make a difference.
Also, I gotta get it washed soon but it’s supposed to rain this weekend? Who knows around here what’s going to happen weather wise.

Well it looks great obviously its the right colour for sunnier weather, although it has to be said mine in portofino blue looks very different on the rare sunny days in the UK

The camera, the sun, the color of the surrounding area. It sure looks different depending on many factors. My pictures were on a more cloudy day, but it does pop on bright sunny days! Looking good @Untdrums!! And @Hotspur too!

New I-Pace owner (1st EV experience) so I may have made a mistake on what I did today (not on the car itself but for my garage).

I purchased the ChargePoint Home Flex charger with Nema 14-50 plug from Amazon and tomorrow I have an electrician coming to install a 240v/50amp receptacle in my garage. For what I understand this setup would allow me to charge the car at a much faster rate and if ever at an RV park (50 amp), this device should work as well.

After reading this tread, it seems a much better option would have been to go with the Tesla charger, I-Pace adapter combination which would give me the fast charging at home, RV park (50 amp), and the advantage to use Tesla's network (non-super chargers).

I would need for either charger an AC Works EV adapter to convert from NEMA 14-50 to 30 amp RV power (if no 50 amp available).

Did I follow all this information correctly?

Also, my understanding is that Tesla's have a configuration menu to select the amount of AMPS (sorry if it is a different electric term) you are connecting to, does the I-PACE have similar menu (I have not found it)?

Also, I assume my request to the electrician to install 240v is correct and not 220v (that's for Europe and not US), but I am confused if 50 amp was the correct request or 40 amp as I saw on some other posts (unless 40 amps is for Europe as well).

Thanks in advance.

I have the same ChargePoint you're getting and it works perfectly with the I-Pace.

You don't need a Tesla charger at all.

Your electrician will know how to install it, but it's 240v and 50amp. Your circuit breaker in your house should have no problem in handling that current load.

Is the need for an adapter a US thing? Here in the UK I just plug into a Tesla destination charger.

Tesla has it's proprietary charging head which is much smaller, better looking and eaiser to use.
Euro standard for Tesla doesn't have that, but used the standard CCS and J1772

ChargePoint installed today and working great (240v / 50 amp).
Reduced charged time from 57 hrs to less than 7 hrs.

First time I see 250 miles (normally 236 hrs. @100%)

App. was easy to setup/use and selecting my local utility provider provides me the $$ used by each charge session.

Drove to Kent Island on other side of Chesapeake Bay Bridge and ate crabs and clams. Longest round trip ever driven and arrived home with 13 miles of range remaining. Never had so little kWh of charge in battery. Could have been a close call. Feeding vehicle now.

Very nice. I use the CP app to track how much electricity I use for charging, even when I'm charging outside.

Wattcat is an essential app for the I-Pace. I track my charging through there as well

Wasn't today, but this week I had my brand new Farallon pearl black HSE wrapped (front half of the car). And in a short while I'm going to unleash the beast on the English countryside.
