After a bit of confusion (long story), I'm picking up my iPace this evening. I currently don't have an EVSE installed at home yet and was going to see how it goes with the normal home socket. Does anyone have any experience so far using this and is it viable long term? My commute is pretty short, total daily normal driving is around 60km, so may cover most of my needs if I charge every night.
I would say it is possible in these conditions . With a normal home socket your charge rate is about 10km per hour
Other option is to fast-charge once a week up to 80% or so. Buy a good (car?) magazine, a caffee and enjoy the great sound system while charging.
Fortunately you must drive a little to the charger ;)
Crazily, Luxembourg have recently installed 800 chargers in the country which is a huge amount for such a small country :D . Unfortunately, they're all AC chargers, so will take 10 hours or so to get it at 7.4kW :( . There is a park and ride close to the office where they've recently installed 108 22kW AC chargers in the last 2 months - shame they didn't do their homework and install a few CCS stations at the same time.

For £149 inc. Installation after the OLEV grant I'd definitely go for 7kW wall box. I've used a normal home socket when staying overnight with a relative and it makes short notice longer trips a faff. I went for: https://evchargers.co.uk. Good quality and reliable.

Cost of a home charging kit with installation here in Luxembourg is close to €2000, so will see how it goes before committing.

You can get a decent charger for about €800. Installation cost will depend from how far you need to connect to your wallbox, €2000 might be a bit overpriced unless the charger itself cost +€1500?

My car has been charging since Monday 09:23 now.. so that’s 46 hours already. I started with 23% and now I have 85%. In total some 220km was added ti the range.

The remote app shows me that only 1% is added per hour and when I started the total charging time indicated 50+ hours.

I have it hooked up to a modified tesla charger at work with a type 2 connector.

Does this (lack of) charging speed sound familiar to fellow Dutch I-pace owners that charge at home or at work?

Well not as bad as that - I am only getting 3-4% from a 3 phase 32A AC charger at work while that should be 8-9%. In terms of charging so far only the 50kW chargers are delivering as it should be.

That’s about 1.5% per hour
Assuming 100% is ~85kWh, then 1.5% per hour = a charge rate of just 1.2kW (that is just 5 amps at 230v input)

The max charge rate from a 11kW 3p charger is ~3.7kW, and from a 22kW 3p charger is ~7.4kW

Sounds poor, but really your question can only be answered if you tell us what the expected max. charge rate of your “modified tesla charger” is ?
Order on hold hoping for improvements......

I currently drive a Nissan Leaf 2.Zero and that one uses the maximum power from my home charger. My charger is 24A / 5.5kW due to the 3x25A home connection I have. If all works well, I will receive my i-pace on Friday and can tell you soon after if it took the 5.5kW as well.

Do you have a public charging subscription? I have a New Motion card and in their portal, you can see both duration and energy consumed. So what I did with another car is connect it, let it charge for 15 minutes and disconnect it. Multiply the number of kWh received by four and you know the charging speed it received. Maybe you can do a similar test?

That is really low. As my daily commute is not so long, I simply connect to a normal wall socket which I believe is delivering 10A. Even with this, I get 2% charge added by hour. This is regardless of the SOC i.e. even above 80 or 90%.
