Also getting all sorts of mixed messages about the Incontrol features, what it will do and wont do, will see on collection again.

On the train tomorrow afternoon, night at The Grand in Brighton, collect on thursday morning and a nice drive back to Leicestershire hopefully with good weather, lets see if the plan comes together!

If you're getting it from Harwoods Brighton, they're actually in Hove, miles away!
Enjoy the ride home :)

I also tried to order the battery charge kit and have been told thats a USA only part, which makes no sense at all as I know some people have it fitted, unless they imported it, again will talk to Sturgess or modify it myself
If that include the charger, you'd be better off just buying a CTEK MXS 5.0 for about a quarter of the price! ;)
Jaguar just rebadge a cheaper CTEK.

I got my local dealer to fit a flat bottomed wheel to my MY2018 V8R. They couldn’t find the correct one, so I found a used car on the Jaguar used website, with the same spec as mine but with the flat bottomed wheel quoted the registration to the parts department and sorted it that way.
