A month with the big black pussy
« on: 06 May 2017, 19:16:46 »

Had it over a month, though obviously couldn't drive for part of that due to being unable to walk, let alone drive.

What I like:
Brilliant, effortless, superb mile cruncher
Heated/Cooled seats
Dual View screen (so she can watch TV or DVD, I see Nav/radio etc screen)
In car entertainment, both sound quality and connectivity options
Sunroof
Rear blind
Blind spot monitor
Jag Voice (it actually works)
Phone integration
Adjustable bolsters in front seats
Memories for passenger seat
Nav junction map comes up on dash, replacing fuel/temp gauges
Wiper sensitivity adjustable
Music streaming from phone via BT
Gracenote database (but doesn't look like its updatable)
Keyless entry/exit/start


What I dislike:
Poor visibility/high window line
Rear styling
Mediocre boot space
Its too long for small parking spaces!
Can't hear incoming text messages on paired phone
Doesn't remember seat heat/cool settings
Central rear view mirror not on the seat memory system
Nav junction map on dash doesn't show distance to manoeuvre, so still have to glance at central nav screen to check distance
10s to fully disable TC.  The moment has usually passed by then, so no more BP antics
Can't wake up gayPod when its gone into standby, so have to rummage for iPod and wake it manually
Rear seats can't fold down for through loads
I really miss the little cubby hole under light switch in Omega


What I think is gimmicky
Quad zone climate control. Why?
Proximity switches for glovebox and internal lights


I reckon it'll be staying, I quite like it :)

Quad zone climate control is like the Omega, only twice as good :y Or to put another way, why not :D

I suppose the "rear styling of a big black pussy" is completely subjective  :-\ :-X

What's Gracenote ?
A system that recognises music, and adds track/artist/album info

Probably because TB people, like you, who own a Jag or Merc are rich and don't need to use a forum about taking them apart  They just put them into a garage;D ;D ;)

And you always said you would never have a XJ.  :P Glad it's gone down well  :)

Boot space in Jags appears an issue, the XF was poor for my needs, the XF Sportback is not great either.

The CC has far a better boot than XF  :(

VW forums fairly poor as well, can't see me doing any major DIY soon other than odd air filters change.

Got a VW, Audi, Skoda or Seat? I have full Diagnostic software VCDS to read and program your car. Need something enabling? Perhaps full diagnostic? Drop me a PM. Can diagnose in Camberley or Osterley Area.

I ain't rich  ;)
When a garage quotes me 400 to replace a single rear shocker plus another  100 to fit it ....... I did them both myself using pattern parts for less than the price of one. A couple of hours (ish  ::) ) each side & they were sorted. I begrudge paying people to do what I can do myself.
