Could be. I did get a survey call from JLR 6 months ago. The only things they asked about were paddle shift and sport mode. Wanted to know if I used it and how often. I took that to mean they were considering removing it.
Look at your build sheet, it will say if it has it or not. If you don't have the build sheet ask your dealer for it.
You did mean paddle shift and not peddle shift right?
Seriously? You would turn back a new rig just because of an option that is totally useless other than bragging rights and "cool factor"? If it is available in other markets then it can obviously be added.
The MY16 for Italian market owners manual don't make any difference between diesel vs. gasoline where it explains how to enable the paddles in Sport mode only, hence they should be there.
I suspect the RRSport could be the recipient of this mod since it has the joy stick shifter.
I've used them once on my neighbour's AB L just to say I did. Let's be real, the L405 is not a sports car, you are not going to be drag racing with it and there is no need to be revving it out like some ridiculous Civic. This applies even more so to a diesel. Yes the diesel is very peppy and most folks will never know it's not a petrol. But common, paddle shifters on a rig like this are nothing more than a gimmick... in my opinion. Put it in drive, set the climate control on auto and relax.
What's the obsession with paddle shifters? Biggest gimmick ever. Amazing what some consumers value in a car. Listen, unless you have a double-clutch box and a 400+ hp engine to boot, along with a highly tuned suspension, a curb weight under 3000 lb., and you track, they're completely useless!
sorry but if your passing prowess depends on flappy paddles then you have no business with a drivers license. if you are cutting your passing distance that close your issues are not with two little pieces of plastic on the back of the steering wheel.
