Now that's a great combo and I like the interior.
Good work.

Those 18 way seats look great Nubbin. Have gone for the 18-way Mem Pack on mine, so hopefully get the same. Unfortunately my budget didn't extend to the S, so I couldn't get the Ebony/Light Oyster in that arrangement (Ebony inside/Oyster outside) otherwise I would have gone with that The R-Sport option unfortunately has the colours reversed with the Oyster on the cushion/backrest which I want to avoid. (by the way is that satin chrome around the seat switches or just the light?)

Hi Mike, thanks for the positive comments - it is indeed satin chrome finish on the switches. They look really nice too. Hopefully your seats will be the same, but if not and you are interested I bought some stick-on versions from China before I even ordered the car, which are now surplus to requirements. £25 + p+p , cost me £50 :D
You're welcome, that colour combo looks fantastic. I've gone for the Corris Grey (struggled to justify the extra £1K for Carpathian although I have to say it looks superb especially with the black pack - a couple guys grey ones with black convinced me to add the black pack (in lieu of an electric tow-bar ("downgraded" to manual one) and reclining rear seats !)

I'll let you know in December if my seat itches came with the Satin Chrome or if they somehow managed to reserve those for just the S model ones (which would seem strange meaning that they would have to have two different sets off switches.

How does the cushion extension work? Does it just kind of "unroll" as it looks like there isn't any other way for it to extend.

I'm actually intrigued to see what difference there is between the 18-way mem seats and the standard R-Sport electric one (which I think are 10 way by default (assuming one upgrades to electric as the standard ones are 8-way manual adjustment I think) ) - Bolster adjustment, Cushion Extension and 4-way Lumber adjustment I think !

Not sure about the seat bolster, not tried it yet! I wondered about the reclining rears but we won't have passengers very often, but we did go for the remote seat release and the plastic boot liner, which is really good. The rear climate looks good but again we didn't need it. Did you go for InTouch Pro?

The squab extension does unroll. It's excellent. As are the side bolsters. The 18 way seats were the most comfortable seats I've ever had by a mile. Miss them.
Two 3.0D F-pace S gone but not forgotten.

Agreed! My wife absolutely loves the seat comfort. The interior is a very nice place to spend time. I need to start driving it properly!

Amazing combo......I’m in a sticky position trying to decide between Corris Grey, and Carpathian....🤔

Gaz, Carpathian looks really great on the configurator, it was the colour I first wanted (back when it was called Storm Grey), but you really need to see it with your own eyes. It looks best in bright sunshine, but under almost any other light conditions it just looks black. I'm not saying there is anything wrong with black, but Carpathian Grey is a very expensive way of getting a 'black' looking car!

After seeing it with my own eyes, I decided on the slightly lighter Corris Grey (or Ammonite, as that shade was then called). I'm so glad I did, because it really suits the car under almost any lighting/weather conditions, in daylight or at night. And it hides the road grime particularly well, still looks good even when it's fairly dirty.

Love it. I’d have taken those seats if available. I so so nearly went Storm Grey also but budget was pushed so left it.
Very nice
Only a wheel size away from what I’d pick right now :)
