Hi all , looking to order my 3.0 d v6 S F-pace very soon but stuck on colour combo for body / wheels, I'm very indecisive :roll: I think I'm going for Storm Grey but unsure on wheels. I'm definitely going for 22's but which ones ? I loved the black helix at the dealers but they were on white and rodium vehicles , I'm not sure if the lighter colour wheels will be better looking on the darker car, I would appreciate your opinions on this as you guys have seen lots more pics than me and made similar decisions.
I'm also going for space saver wheel , covered cup holder , privacy glass and the Taurus / jet leather combo for interior.

Thanks everyone.

Hi Gary,
So many opinions on wheels, stick with 22"s though I prefer silver personally against a darker colour.
Are you adding black pack?

I think dark colours together look good. A few of the wheel designs for me are uninspiring and black against dark grey will be a nice enough contrast. Other light wheels with grey contrasts would look ok.
See if you can find the exact combos in other pics.

I was not going to add the black pack as I feel it's a lot of money and I've nothing against the chrome but I do like it

I'm a fan of non-black pack on a darker coloured S as the satin silver elements are part of the S-spec.

BUT, make sure you've seen the silver rear valance of the S in the flesh in your colour and you like it. Some view it as rather Vauxhall Mokka/ Nissan Qashqai' ish.

It's growing on me but I am considering blackening it or even some kind of carbon fibre

My storm grey + black pack with 22" silver helix has been built and should be with me in the next couple of weeks. If you can hang fire a little while I'll post pics up ones I have my hands on it

Nope, hence the black pack, which is rear valance, window surrounds, bottom of the door strip and Jaguar side vents in black. I know what you mean £675 seems a lot, but the overall effect is excellent, I wasn't going to until I saw two different variants

Paul having seen a DSB with sliver at the weekend in Oswestry it looked very nice, but I beg to differ that it will work on all dark colours, yes with DSB or BRG but I think it would be lost on my Storm Grey and I think the back panel would clash with SG...... But I am coming round to the idea on IRR with silver D helix 22's......

Agreed. on re-reading what I should have written is that "I'm a fan of non-black pack on CERTAIN darker coloured S's as the satin silver elements are part of the S-spec." DSB and perhaps British Racing Green compliment the satin silver whilst Ammonite and Storm Grey suit the contrast the black pack allows. Black I've never decided on.

Now I know that the rear valance is not black on all S models I do agree that when playing with the configurator the rear valance looks IMO better in black. I'm a annoyed at the dealer telling me it was black on all the models. I see there is an option to only change the vents to black but not one just for the rear valance. Not sure I want to add another £675 to the total as the 22" wheels and storm grey paint have already pushed my price higher than I was expecting.

Personally if you intend to got with a darker colour like storm I would avoid black pack and black rims, it's the silver accessories which lift the design in the same way as a black pack does for light paint colours.

Grey with black pack and silver wheels looks lovely
