Finally Got It!!

I finally picked up my I-Pace this afternoon! The whole thing was such a fabulous experience. From the red sheet covering to the big reveal. And then the drive home! I asked quite a few questions thanks to the forum, and had some pleasant surprises. He tells me that it has an update which has enabled OTA updates. Not sure if that's right, but that's what he told me. Had a minor glitch with InControl setup but that was fixed with a password reset. Seems to be working fine now. I can set climate control and unlock from the app, as well as see where the car is. So far, so good.

The side panels are the new ones with the embossed writing rather than the decals. He said that the demonstrator has already suffered with fading decals and looks really bad now.

I put my data only sim from Three in (20 Gb a month for £13) and it worked straight away too. Wasn't expecting that to be so simple in all honesty.

It's the first time I've seen my choices (colour, interior and wheels) on one car, and I have to say it looks stunning! Couple of pics below. I didn't take too many as I was too busy drooling!

The drive home was just spectacular. I had to turn right from the dealers onto a busy road, and had to go for a gap. Wow. That car doesn't need much of a gap! One big issue was when I got it home, with the mirrors folded there is about 1cm clearance on either side to my garage door. That was scary, but I can confirm that the 360 camera works a treat, and doesn't seem to be suffering from lag either. The parking sensors also work really well! Scariest 30 seconds of my life I think!

Anyway, I only drove it for 8 miles, but wow. So happy with my choice. Also had someone come up to me when I stopped somewhere and ask me about the car. Guess I'll have to get used to that!

So thanks guys. The forum has been extremely useful and has helped keep me (relatively) sane during the long wait.

Looks fantastic. You have lots of enjoyment that you will get from the car.

Hi Goshdarnit, is your Three data only sim card on a monthly contract? I want something similar but can't see anything like it on the Three web site. Thanks.

Hi. Yes it’s a pay monthly sim only deal on a 24 month contract. Try this link:-

How appropriate that my first comment was from chewy. My car’s nickname in the InControl app? The Millennium Falcon!!

I have no idea how much data the car will chew up so I am opting for Three's pay up front 24GB for £42.97 on Amazon with the ability to top up after it has used up all the data, or you can always buy a new one of course if the top up is more expensive. And the data allowance lasts 24 months so that looked like a pretty good deal to me.

Looks great. I have the same colours inside and out on my FE and it's the first grey car I've owned. Always shied away from that colour, but really like it on the iPace. Are you able to check the infotainment and telematics version it's running?

Hi Paul McLaren. I got mine on Wednesday and below are screenshots of my infotainment and telematics software versions. I was told that it was fully up to date. Curiously no information on battery software.

This is not the latest software.
I have Telematics 15.2 and Infotainment S18D
