J. Dub's Build... An emblemless lifted White Evoque dynamic coupe w/ black roof

Here is my last finished Custom Build:Custom Lexus
Here is a build I was forced to abandon:Custom Prowler
Here is my old Daily Driver Build:Custom Insight
Here is my latest Daily Driver Build:Custom 335i

I'm here because I wanted a vehicle that is awd, 2-door, glass roof, heated and cooled seats, contains "drama features" such as side mirrors that fold out upon unlocking the car, interior lights that fade out like a movie theater upon starting, a steering wheel that retracts when exiting, and comes forward when starting the car, headlights that move up & down in attempts to find a center line upon starting the vehicle and adapt to turns in the road, along with 0-60 in under 4. The only vehicle that seems to match that criteria is the new 2016 Jaguar F-type. But it's far too expensive for my current budget. And it's too low to the ground... I require an AWD or 4WD vehicle.
So I started looking for other vehicles with glass roofs but with actual ground clearance. And that pointed me to the 2014+ Jeep SRT. Huge glass roof. Problem is they're all over the streets where I live. Everyone has one here in my state. Plus it's a 4-door and I find 2-doors much more tasteful. I was also pointed to a Jeep Wrangler with the custom glass JeeTop. But sadly, Jeep Wranglers are also a dime a dozen here in the states. And I prefer to stand out in the crowd on the road.

So here I am w/ a 2014 2-door Evoque Dynamic. I've finally found the car that fits my budget and has things on it I like. I admit I wanted to purchase the redesigned MY16+ dynamic but YET AGAIN here in the states we get neutered by an oversea car company. And we don't get the option of a Dynamic coupe hardtop here in the states. I also LOVE the sports seats that the UK dynamics had the option of getting. I think they're recaro's. Sadly we didn't get those seats here in the states either. So I was stuck with hunting for a 2012-2015. After searching for 4.5 months I found a 14 dynamic coupe with 20,021 miles on her and almost all the options I wanted. Problem was she was 758 miles north east of where I live. It turned out dynamic coupes are rare here in the states.
Sadly, despite this engine being a ford ecoboost motor and having a HUGE tuning scene here in the states... I have found NO ONE that will tune the engine on these evoque's.
Another thing I wished my evoque came with aside from the MY16 headlights, tail lights, massage seats, & 10.3" intouch headunit was the black pack & the adaptive cruise control. I also wish cooled seats was available on the dynamic but, sadly, that was only on the pure or tech trim. Which I find strange but we all know LR logic is strange. I digress.
As far as my Evoque. I was surprised by how firm the ride is. Admittedly, there is still an enchantment I have with this vehicle. The interior and exterior are stunning, bar none. The suspension is perhaps something I will address much later in the future. But by that point I will be holding my breath that LR NA brings 2017 dynamic coupes to our shorelines that are NOT convertibles. And if they do, I will sell my queen and move to a new one.

:Onwards to the actual build:


Convenience/Coded:
-Auto open trunk/boot module that lifts itself open & closed via remote or dash button
-Side mirrors fold on lock/unlock
-Waze auto launch via llama on cell (hacked Arnold voice-when phone detects going over 10mph, it launches)

Interior:
-20% tint front side windows (match the rear windows) needs to be redone as my installer left many bubbles in it
-Rubber all weather floor mats F&R
-5k white LED interior lamps above rear seat
-Red LED under dash / footwell lamps
-Removed warning stickers on visors
-Gloss black all the alum trim pieces on dash and center console
-Flat bottom, flat top, perforated leather sides / smooth U&L heated steering wheel

Exterior:
-LRC867 paint code for Fuji White (for my records)
LRC820 paint code for Santorini Black pearl metallic (for my records)
-Removed/shaved all exterior badges
-Filled & shaved front bumper holes
-Removed all stickers on door jambs
-Painted (high temp) exhaust tips santorini black
-Painted (high temp) rotor hats gloss black
-Painted (high temp) brake calipers gloss black
-Painted factory 20" wheels santorini black
-Black tire stems & black lug nut covers
-Painted the silver trim on front bumper santorini black
-Painted the fog lights upper and lower chrome, santorini black
-Painted the fog light area surround santorini black
-Painted the exhaust silver surround santorini black

Exterior Lighting:
-MY16 black pack tail lights
-MY16 black pack headlights
-T10 cree 50w projector LED's as reverse light
-Off road LED light bar behind front grill (30")

Security:
-F&R DDPai mini 2 dashcams
-Magnetic holster mounted under steering wheel for my CC
-Whelen PA system

Engine/Trans:
-Latest Trans flash update from LR NA
-Removed engine cover (for better under hood temps)

Suspension:
-H&R 30mm lift kit (1.2")
-Try and find longer dynamic shocks (doubt it-maybe bilstein)
-Fabricate a way to lower the shocks mounting eyelet so the shocks still think there is no lift and will not bottom out if, in case, I cannot find longer magnetic dynamic shocks

Maintenance/Fix:
-Clean/condition all rubber weather seals
-Clean & wipe all interior felt w/ tape
-Eventually an injector cleaning and walnut blasting will be needed
-Find two more screws for license plate w/ black covers

I got the previous owners maintenance records by calling his dealership and asking for them. Looks like he had the Evoque serviced at 10k and @ 20k miles on the odometer.
-I ordered cabin filter, air filter, oil filter, and oil on 9/21/16
-I will be sending oil analysis to blackstone to see how the engine is doing
-I will be cleaning the felt, the window rubber trim, and all rubber trim along with conditioning it this weekend

Future mods:
-Lower the driver seat 2" to see under rearview mirror
-Mirror android on the HeadUnit and control android from headunit
-A spare to match the taller tires Maybe even wide enough so I won't need spare wheel middle floor holder?
-Hide-a-plate rear plate
-PA system
-Code brighter angel eyes (not yet figured out how)
-Code 7 blink one touch turnsignals (not yet figured out how)
-Code more aggressive headlight AHL (not yet figured out how)
-Figure out how to get the DRL's to stay on at full brightness after unlocking car
-Install FlashLogic Remote Start / keyless entry from cell phone (literally leave key at home)

Wish I had mods:
-Easy exit / entry with steering wheel moving out of the way. Currently, the easy exit doesn't work cause my seat is already as far back as it will go.
-Adaptive cruise control
-22x11 +20 wheels gloss black Rohanna RC22's
-305/35R22 tires
-10" headunit out of the 2017 evoque
-Heated & cooled sporster seats from UK with massage
-V8 out of the RR Sport SVR

Hi Doody, I see you're in the states... Yet again we get screwed by LR NA not bringing in a coupe Dynamic evoque hardtop. Sad.

Checked out your BMW and Prowler links. Very cool. You don't mess around. Maybe add a chrome Jag hood ornament to your Evo... ha ha ha...

Cars looking great, but can't see any modified pics. Those seats look a bargain. I have the sport seats in mine and love them.

My previous weekend car was a highly modified m3. Had a modded 335d also prior to this.
