Hi just worked out "K" is 2019 and "L" is 2020. I would not expect the car to be 2020 until around July or August for the September No plate
MY builds are nothing to do with the number plate system of the UK or any other country.
SE, Firenze Red, Black Pack & Black 20” wheels, Air Suspention, HUD, Adaptive Cruise & Steering etc, DAB+

I am going for the Corris as it has the Cold Pack and Heated seats included at no extra cost [...]
The heated seats are a really nice option, I love them. I did not go for the whole cold package and was kind of kicking myself because the windshield does tend to fog over in the cold if the climate control is not running, and running the heat puts a big change on the guess-o-meter's range. The heated windshield is supposed to be a more efficient option.

That said, I've been driving a loaner 2019 XE while my I-Pace is in the shop getting its key fob antenna replaced, and this XE does have the full cold package. The heated steering while is *really* nice, I wish I had that. The windshield is a different story. At least in the XE, it has a grid of squiggly little wires embedded in the glass, about 3mm apart from each other. It's like looking through a silk curtain, and I don't like it at all. Very glad I skipped that option on the I-Pace, it makes me crazy staring through those lines all the time. You might want to have a look through a heated windshield yourself before you decide.

Hi, the lone car I have from Jaguar, while mine is being repaired, has no air suspension, it is a totally different car to drive, I drove to Leicester in it this morning and went cross country, it`s road holding and ride quality are in a totally different league, nowhere near as nice as my car with air suspension.
Needless to say, I come home down the M69 and up the M6, the moral of the story is - if you are looking to order an I Pace, seriously consider air suspension, I haven’t missed the 825 watt stereo, HUD, premium leather seats or any other feature of the First Edition.

Just the quick side question. Why do the change the antenna? My car locking buttons in door handles stopped working. Could it be because the antenna? The car goes to dealer tomorrow for fix, so this info might help.

The locking buttons in the door handles didn't work on mine on delivery and it turned out to be a dodgy connector inside one of the door panels. Perhaps yours has worked loose?

I don’t know what Jaguar Wolverhampton have done to my I Pace`s Lie O meter, because they are currently charging the vehicle and it’s at 88% and its range is 236 miles.
That must have been some master rest carried out; because when I charge it to 95% it says the range is 188 miles.
I just hope they found a fault and it is now reliable, because the last thing I want is to go down the rejection path again as it is such a fantastic car.
I hate this loan car with no air suspension and it always smells like a toilet – horrible.

The key fobs wouldn't work unless they were within about six feet of the car, and half the time they wouldn't be recognized from within the car. ("Key not recognized, place as shown under the steering wheel.") Dealer told me they were replacing some kind of antenna located in the door. Details when its back from the shop, if there are any to share.

They probably just did a reset, so its back to factory estimate of range based on charge level - its forgotten that you are not Chewy :-)

Don't worry, your 188 for 95% is very creditable - mine is estimating about 180 miles maximum range, if I were to charge it to 100%, and I think it takes off a few every time I get into it :D

...which I guess will be in another three days. The antenna arrived at the shop, but JLR let them know they've also got to replace a door switch at the same time. That switch is now on order, but it has to transit the pond. :roll:
