Very nice
What swung the decision to the Porker over Jag?
Any opinions of the flimsy weedy paddle pull on the F type CJ? It’s put me off one tbh.

Sorry for thread hi jack Metal, that’s a lovely 718, she’ll love it and I won’t knock her teeth out..! :driving:
sorry - no hijack intended.
Easy fix to replace with alloy paddles. Even dealers do it. In my case I found a brand new SVR wheel on eBay for £200 so swapped (similar to ///M conversion on the Zed)
Sure but it’s the tiny amount of paddle travel and a pathetic little click that puts me off Phil, where’s the meaty thunk of some proper engineering?

No problem guys
I get what you're saying regarding the flappy paddles and it wasn't as good as the JCW or the 435 but I could have lived with it
Did notice in the Jag dealership in the section they have for upgrades/spares etc there was a set of red coloured aluminium flappy paddles don't know if these are different to what's on the car (apart from colour)

Meant to be lovely cars, but really don't like the look of the 718, seems such a backward design compared to the 981 GTS.

I think they're doing 0% apr deals on these now right?
