Hi all, just thought I would post a warning to forewarn owners/potential buyers of the issues with my epace. Had my D180 rdynamic the car from new (March 19) and have so far covered around 13k.

After a couple of weeks of ownership i took it to JLR with what I (as an engineer) deem as strange noises coming from the engine bay. Long story short, 4 or 5 visits to the dealership and 13,000 miles later, the noises became much more pronounced. Significant whining noise (without the wife in the car), at standstill and kn motion also accompanied by a can of marbles at around 1.5k-2k. Called jag assist who attended to my car and was advised the car needed new balance shafts, common I know, but I still don't like the idea of my new car having its engine out to replace them. Booked into Jaguar huddersfield (who have so far been awesome!) to confirm the fault only to be told that, yes - replacement balance shafts are required but the timing chain is also noisy and requires further investigation.....

Sheesh is all I can say. Stay well away from an ingenium engined car!
