    Well pre loaded sim card arrived today, so installed and played with "Live" news, weather, sports etc and then faffed around with Navigation setup to enable preset destinations, text updates etc etc

    All pretty cool stuff

    Went into the office today last minute thing, big pow wow with some seriously important customers, gotta make them happy ad then keep them happy, it's not rocket science.

    Whilst there the MD again commented on the car and how impressed he was ( looks like I may be in line for a pay cut lol )

    He's actually talking about an F type for his wife and as a toy for him once in a while lol

    Test drives to be set up and then I allegedly have to help find THE Car......no pressure ........RICH!!

    No worries on the job front mate, it'll happen soon enough I'm sure. Either way it's not like you actually need it, just fancy a change

    Hope to hear buddy

    A rare F-Type version and now an oddball would be the V8S convertible, cheapest way to a V8 F-Type convertible, remap gives you the full fat R power too and now holding their value. The one I would have though is the V6S Coupe, best sounding imo and the coupe with a stiffer chassis so better handling too.

    Hi Mac,
    instead of slamming the doors closed, they can be pushed gently shut until they catch, the motor the kicks in and pulls it closed the last inch or so.

    All very clever!

    Try it and see, but try a few doors and see what happens.
    Over and above that you could check your build sheet to see if it's included

    One of the coolest useless feature ever. No one will know your car has it and will still slam the door shut. Having to show people and teach them a new way to close a door. Good to watch it happen though pulling the door closed by itself after you give it a slight close of the door.

    Lol agreed on all points

    That said mine's is going in as the drivers door isn't enabled and damn well should be!

    Try to encourage family etc to use the feature and NOT slam the ****** doors PLEASE!!!

    They WILL learn in time...
