Hey tzoid9, Just tried in on my 18 Type R and both windows went down. They didn't go up when I held the lock button

The ones on the side are fake unfortunately.

Something that adds to the cool factor of the car. Who cares if they are just for visual appeal. Don't decorate your tree in December!

tzoid,
Is your auto-up feature working on the passenger side? If not, reprogramming that might enable the remote-down feature.

thanks for thinking of me on your posting Unhingd ( love that name), but itís really no big deal for me. My golf clubs usually ride in that seat and unlike my lovely wife, thereís no b*tching from them if the windows are up or down. I just put both down with the switches in the car when I want them down. I just drive it in nice weather, saving it for the next guy when I sell it! I know thatís stupid, but I canít help myself!

Golf clubs fit in my coupe trunk. I simply remove the "woods" and place them in separately with grips inserted first toward the taillights. The bag and remaining clubs go in last. I should point out that mine is a Ping Hoofer carry bag, not one of the staff bag types.

My golf clubs are almost always in the trunk of my convertible. Stand bag, woods out. The woods fit across the back of the trunk, but not while in the bag.

Glad to hear from the golf-a-holics in the crowd. Probably with a stand bag and maneuvering of the woods, the coupeís trunk would fit a set. I have a large bag, almost a staff bag sized set up. Slipping them in the front seat is simple and easy for me. Regardless, nice hearing from you folks! Thanks!

With careful maneuvering, I can get two stand bags in the convertible trunk, with the woods in the passenger footwell, and a passenger in the passenger seat. Done it many times.

As the overly honest man said while on trial for murder: "Your honor, I'm a drug dealer, not a murderer," I will paraphrase: "tzoid, I'm an alcoholic, not a golf-a-holic."
To the bag carrying dilemma, my other bag (the female one), is rather large and takes up the available volume of the passenger area of my F-Type. Inasmuch as she insists on accompanying me to the course so as to ride around in the cart (the only exercise she gets), it was necessary that I find a method of conveying my golf clubs that did not entail taking up any of the space by SWMBO. We must all adapt to the circumstances at hand, and I envy your singular method.

After an unexpected trip to Germany and a surprisingly empty Autobahn...

If you forget to put a few extra pounds in the tyres and drive faster than 250 km/h then a warning comes up on the dash telling you that your tyre pressures are too low for sustained high speed driving.

Similarly, there's a 12V pump in the toolkit, found this out after I had already bought one.

Just to make the Aussies (and Yanks) jealous...

Love it!
And yes, very jealous, no way I can do that here in Oz without instant loss of car, loss of licence and then jail time.
The main thing I noticed was the lane discipline, where drivers in the "fast" lane saw you coming up from behind and then pulled over to the "slow" lane to let you go.
Absolutely no such thing here in Oz, instead they sit in the "fast" lane at 5, 10 or even more km/h under the pitifully slow 100 or 110 km/h speed limit, with nothing at all in the slow lane, and refuse to move to the slow lane. They either simply never use their mirrors and don't even know you are there, or they do know and decide to deliberately block you.
I usually wait about 10 seconds then if they don't move over I flatten the go pedal and "undertake", which I notice you never had to do and which I would not do on the Autobahn given the speed differential.

I have edited out the bits where people blocked me, happens here too, just not as often and other drivers generally stay out of the way. You have to be very careful when approaching a line of vehicles, one will more often than not choose exactly the wrong moment to commence an overtaking manoeuvre. Overtaking on the right is expensive on the Autobahn, very much frowned upon, as is running out of fuel and the Jag uses quite a bit at speed!

You should also consider calling the "fast" lane an overtaking lane, then its purpose is explicitly spelled out, it is for overtaking, if you're not doing that go back to the cruising lane. Last weekend I had to cede passage to a McLaren, a Ferrari and a Lambo. The McLaren was impressive!

coincidentally, one of my top 10 favorite takedowns of that insipid garbage of Ayn's is in the Economist letters to the editor, in the last few weeks. It is always the case of the immature to appreciate pretense before actual intelligence.

What a glorious treat. Lol

Agreed, it should be the overtaking lane.
Here in Oz the national road rule on every road with a posted speed limit of more than 80 km/h is "keep left unless overtaking".
We even have signs saying that on many roads.
Problem is, no-one takes any notice and I have never seen or heard of anyone ever being pulled over by Plod and fined for not obeying this rule.
