Hi All

Just traded my Discovery 3 in for a 20 E Pace that I pick up Sunday.

Looking forward to great tech, reliability, excellent mpg and DAB. Easy to say all that coming from a 12 year old Discovery.

I purchased the "Chequered Flag" edition and really pleased with all the scpec that comes with it. Have spent a while reading through a lot of the threads on here to better try to understand the connect pro but I'm guessing I will pick it up as I go.

What is everyones view on buying GAP? Didn't want to pay £750 at the showroom.

Welcome Richie

Personally I've never bothered with GAP at all, but I believe it's significantly cheaper to source that independently. Have a look at What Car or Auto Express and see if they've covered potential suppliers.

On the tech and reliability I hope your expectations are met. I haven't had any serious problems so far (6 months in), but the infotainment can be a bit glitchy. MPG will be nothing like the stated but that's true of all manufacturers.

Which petrol or diesel have you gone for?

Thank You
Have gone for the 180D so expecting a bit better than the 23mpg currently getting.

Admiral have quoted £280 for the duration so that isn't a bad bet.

I guess every car is going to have it's glitches I hope the good outways the bad, it's been out for a few years now so hopefully Jaguar will have sorted most of the gremlins.

I see yours is fully specced. Is there anything on it you couldn't be without now?

Check out return to invoice cover with ALA. who are a sponsor on here. The policy was a lot cheaper yet it's better cover. I had it with my previous car and transferred part of the policy remaining. Discount code available for forum members just check the section above.

I haven't done a proper brim to brim calculation for mpg but the car tells me I'm getting high 20s on normal use (urban plus A road commutes of 15 miles each way) and high 30s on longer A road or motorway trips.

I love the panoramic roof, makes it so airy. Powered tailgate excellent (I have gesture too which is good once you learn the knack). Power folding mirrors essential. Adaptive cruise I use all the time. Keyless entry I'm used to on previous car but could live without if I had to.

I keep a check on my mileage since birth and the average is around 36 mpg after 20k miles and that is now mostly short journeys. I have D180 S Auto.

As others have said the software can be a bit glitchy but each newer version is more stable.

A few owners of the D150 do report problems with the DPF but this can mostly be avoided with a regular run on the dual carriageway or motorway.

Hope you enjoy your new car 😀

Thanks for all the replies. Will update on my mpg once I have had it a few weeks - I see 40mpg as a challenge now :)

Will take a look at the GAP you mentioned as the Admiral site just wont work for me.

Enjoy the weekend all.

Hi All

The DPF issues are a design fault although they will blame your "drive cycle" as the DPF does not like short journeys even though the garage does not advise you of this...…..
