    Ordering today

    So it's time to replace the family wagon currently an X-Type Estate 2.2D Sport Premium. After having problems with EGR valves Mrs H didn't want a diesel which ruled out the sensible choice of a Discovery Sport and so round to look at the F-Pace. We did think about a Macan S (too small inside) and the X5 (seriously fugly and the worst BMW salesman ever) but took a 3.0TD F-Pace S out for a couple of hours test drive.
    How the hell something as big and high as that handles the way it does is beyond the laws of physics - simply awe inspiring.
    Again the no diesel rule applies so 3.0 V6 petrol it is

    Delivery expected January to March next year!

    Lucky Mrs H

    Damned long time to wait for a car.

    What's the spec and have you opted for any toys?

    Delivery has been moved forward so we're expecting the F-Pace to arrive later this month.
    Spec is V6S Supercharged in Ammonite Grey with Panoramic roof, 20" Blade 5 Spoke in Gloss Black, Red/Black leather, InTouch Pro Pack and a few other bits.

    Ended up leaving collection for a couple of weeks while we sold the X Type but we have it now. First impressions are the noise is fantastic, loads of room inside and some very silly toys.
