Any thoughts /opinions greatfully received!

With the deadline approaching next Friday (16th) for locking down my order, I'm 99% there with what I'm happy with.

I've switched from a Prestige to an R-Sport with black pack and am set on 20 inch Blades which I saw the other week on an F-Pace and look fantastic.

My final dilemma now is colour as I'm really torn. My order is currently set as Rhodium Silve, but I am sorely tempted by Italian Racing Red. Both configurations look good to me, so It may end up with the flip of a coin mid-week before my final call to the dealer.

Any thoughts?

P.S. At the dealers this morning, there were several f-pace's in the yard which had bonnet/front bumper misalignments. I raised this with the dealer and he said they knew; the issues would be sorted before handover - a quick fix he said - and that they were getting fewer through with this issue now. Seemed like an honest answer and it let me point out that I wouldn't be accepting a car if my bonnet hadn't been sorted before hand.

yes, out of those 2 choices, I'd go IRR + black pack + black wheels

IRR. Silver is yesteryear. You will get a better reflective finish on IRR. Ultimately, go with your heart.

IRR with Black pack and Black wheels really stands out, look on here for people who have posted there Fpace with this colour combination. Stunning.

Was at the dealers yesterday and saw both cars next to each other, the silver really doesn't do it for me.

I've saw both at the dealer both inside the showroom and outside in the sun, when weather is dull or its dark I think Silver looks best but when it's sunny IIR is stunning, truly stunning.

I have a few more days left to annoy you but Oyster headliner??? Pano roof with jet headliner is great! The colour from seats carpets dash all flow. The cabin is flooded with light so it's not oppressive. Salesman talked me out of jet on my Evoque. I drove my secretary's BMW with black headliner (no panoroof) and felt oyster was wrong decision. Managed to change the Evoque and loved the darker less distracting colour.....so ordered same on the FP. Amongst many, it's one of my favourite options!

Agree with Carl. Always had light coloured headlining with black leather in previous cars. Did the same with Evoque that had full pano and thought hmmm really should have gone for black. With the FP have gone for black headlining with the pano and it's the right choice IMO.

As we say on these posts it's personal opinion, after driving three coal hole Audi's in a row, black leather black headlining etc how refreshing in my Storm grey with black leather to have oyster and fixed pano brightens the car no end and I think black rather than oyster would have made it feel German again... But we pays our money and makes our choice etc.. As long as we are all happy with what we decided, I am as are Carl JLR etc, however I know I am right............ Just kidding :D

I have just realised that all those south of Watford gap won't understand the reference to a coal hole, it's a northern cultural reference to a coal cellar again something none of u darn sarf will be acquainted with, it means it's dark and unpleasent aka inside many a German car :shock: :lol: :D now where's my tin hat.....

My mother was born n bred in Toxteth Liverpool, I had many a happy visit as a child experiencing coal hole of my Nans tenement building darkness and the smell. The lock ins and fights in my uncles pub, thefts and cars set on fire in the streets!!!! Actually thinking of the latter for my FP!! That's actually one thing they haven't suffered thank goodness!!!

Michael Palin: Ahh.. Very passable, this, very passable.

Graham Chapman: Nothing like a good glass of Chateau de Chassilier wine, ay Gessiah?

Terry Gilliam: You're right there Obediah.

Eric Idle: Who'd a thought thirty years ago we'd all be sittin' here drinking Chateau de Chassilier wine?

MP: Aye. In them days, we'd a' been glad to have the price of a cup o' tea.

GC: A cup ' COLD tea.

EI: Without milk or sugar.

TG: OR tea!

MP: In a filthy, cracked cup.

EI: We never used to have a cup. We used to have to drink out of a rolled up newspaper.

GC: The best WE could manage was to suck on a piece of damp cloth.

TG: But you know, we were happy in those days, though we were poor.

MP: Aye. BECAUSE we were poor. My old Dad used to say to me, "Money doesn't buy you happiness."

EI: 'E was right. I was happier then and I had NOTHIN'. We used to live in this tiiiny old house, with greaaaaat big holes in the roof.

GC: House? You were lucky to have a HOUSE! We used to live in one room, all hundred and twenty-six of us, no furniture. Half the floor was missing; we were all huddled together in one corner for fear of FALLING!

TG: You were lucky to have a ROOM! *We* used to have to live in a corridor!

MP: Ohhhh we used to DREAM of livin' in a corridor! Woulda' been a palace to us. We used to live in an old water tank on a rubbish tip. We got woken up every morning by having a load of rotting fish dumped all over us! House!? Hmph.

EI: Well when I say "house" it was only a hole in the ground covered by a piece of tarpolin, but it was a house to US.

GC: We were evicted from *our* hole in the ground; we had to go and live in a lake!

TG: You were lucky to have a LAKE! There were a hundred and sixty of us living in a small shoebox in the middle of the road.

MP: Cardboard box?

TG: Aye.

MP: You were lucky. We lived for three months in a brown paper bag in a septic tank. We used to have to get up at six o'clock in the morning, clean the bag, eat a crust of stale bread, go to work down mill for fourteen hours a day week in-week out. When we got home, out Dad would thrash us to sleep with his belt!

GC: Luxury. We used to have to get out of the lake at three o'clock in the morning, clean the lake, eat a handful of hot gravel, go to work at the mill every day for tuppence a month, come home, and Dad would beat us around the head and neck with a broken bottle, if we were LUCKY!

TG: Well we had it tough. We used to have to get up out of the shoebox at twelve o'clock at night, and LICK the road clean with our tongues. We had half a handful of freezing cold gravel, worked twenty-four hours a day at the mill for fourpence every six years, and when we got home, our Dad would slice us in two with a bread knife.

EI: Right. I had to get up in the morning at ten o'clock at night, half an hour before I went to bed, (pause for laughter), eat a lump of cold poison, work twenty-nine hours a day down mill, and pay mill owner for permission to come to work, and when we got home, our Dad would kill us, and dance about on our graves singing "Hallelujah."

MP: But you try and tell the young people today that... and they won't believe ya'.

ALL: Nope, nope..
