Sounds great! I’ve just booked a tour for August to see the factory and can’t wait now! Anything to while away the months until delivery!KLRichards wrote: ↑Wed Jun 19, 2019 3:06 pmJust to go back to my OP...
I did my experience (off road) day last Friday in Solihull, combined it with a factory tour in the morning.
What a fantastic experience.
The tour of the Velar and F-Pace factory was brilliant. How many of you knew there is no Weld at all on the Velar or F-Pace, but only GLUE (like the type used by NASA) and rivets. And the factory (above the press) is built over rubber cones to absorb the impact which would register 2 on the Richter scale). Really, worth adding to your experience if going to Solihull. We where informed that from the very start to a Velar driving off the production line took 3 days (72 hours).. I had to correct them and say it took 5 MONTHS and 3 days .
As for the off road experience in Solihull, its fantastic. And you will be amazed at what the Velar can do with ease. Only a couple of paths of the off road tracks not done, and thats only down to height clearance. The only mud my Velar is likely to see, is from a badly repaired car park, but when the snow comes, I'll have 100% confidence that it will get me out and home again.
Very impressive experience day and an amazing car.
Also got an email last week for a complimentary half day experience. I’ve not taken delivery of the car yet so wondered if this was just a marketing ploy or them sending emails months in advance?
