Nice looking motor you’ve got there.
Yeah the performance seats really are the dogs. Spent most of the day in them yesterday. Amazing how comfy they can be despite being so thin. Love the nerdy facts that they are magnesium based and 8 kg lighter than the previous seats.Those performance seats are something else aren’t they? Love ‘em.
Yep, I have the same wheels as well, Blades.Lovely, I had those wheels on my V6S, don’t kerb them
Mine has adjustable auto passenger mirror dip when in reverse and I have it set so it shows the left rear wheel and kerb at the same time.Save one of your seat memory settings with both wing mirrors pointing down so you can see the rear wheels each side.
That’s what I use in multi stories. Hasn’t failed me yet!
Same here but the CF inserts in particular come up looking much better - nice and glossy rather than dull - after cleaning.Yeah I’m almost a bit intimidated by the blade wheels knowing how expensive they are. I think they look absolutely epic and had a bit mixed feelings about them since they were the wheels i wanted most but also knew that the consequences of kerbing them probably would be much worse than with more normal wheels.
They do remind me a bit of the dark dracos which IMHO are the best looking X250 wheels.
So far I’ve also noticed that they’re pretty good at hiding brake dust, being all matte.
They’re all mint and I dread the day I’ll kerb one. I think skrrt, that YouTube chap that made quite a few F-Type vids mentioned that the carbon blade inserts are 100$ each. I’ll need to be able to deal with multi story/underground car parks at some point so I’m planning some veeery cautious practice parking runs especially keeping the front splitter and wheels in mind.
Also noticed that the other day when I wiped off the wheels for the first time - the only bits that get visually affected by brake dust are the glossy CF inserts.Same here but the CF inserts in particular come up looking much better - nice and glossy rather than dull - after cleaning.
Just a quick wipe with a MF cloth and your favourite quick detailer is all it takes.
I have the mirror dip feature too (would feel odd not to have it, after having it in both my XFs too) but haven’t checked if it could dip the driver side mirror too. Good point anyhow about setting up one of the memory settings to also dip the driver mirror.Mine has adjustable auto passenger mirror dip when in reverse and I have it set so it shows the left rear wheel and kerb at the same time.
Great for ranking and tight manoeuvring so as to avoid kerbing the left rear wheel when in reverse.
No such function on the driver's side mirror and even if it did I wouldn't use it.
Tom - yours may or may not have the same, I think I read somewhere that that function may have been removed from later model years maybe 2018 onward. Either that or it's only RHD F-Types that have it and LHD missed out.
Yep, purely for looks I’d say. Otherwise I think the spoke design is quite similar to the 400 Sport wheels. I think these blade wheels are also supposed to be forged and a little bit lighter than other F-Type 20” wheels.What are the carbon fibre inserts for on the blades? Is it purely for appearance?
