Today on the way into work the DSC system failed. Wouldnt have been a huge problem had i not been pulling out of a road at the time and it locked the steering :eek: ended up with a huge fookin gash in the alloy and had to take the car to the dealer as it was stuck in reduced performance mode and wouldnt go above 30. Tried restarting but no good. After an hour at the dealer they reset it (and have ordered another alloy) but told me to keep my eye on it.

Honestly with that, the fact that the sill plates dont illuminate and the ipod doesnt shut off properly im getting the feeling being an early adopter can sometimes be foolish

Stiill the looks on the way home made up for it :lol:

once it got hooked up to the computer you could see what happened. The DSC malfunctioned and assumed I was loosing the rear end (at 15mph at the most! :roll: ) so it applied the brakes to the front left wheel and when it totally stopped it the back end DID start to move to it applied the brakes hard to the front right. The effect of these two braking decisions meant that the steering just kinda stopped and.... hello kerb!

at least they are getting me a new wheel and i will be monitoring the DSC after they reset it. I will be contacting Jaguar for recompence though
