Mike72 thanks for that. Any pics of your F-Pace? Delighted to hear you are enjoying it and appreciate the tips on the detailing. I think I'm almost certainly going to follow that.

BrianA - be sure to post your pics! Envious of you. Sounds like a beautiful spec. All the very best with it!

Cabbage,

No pics.....as I don't have it yet :-( Delivery only in December (by necessity as current lease only goes back then !)

Once I have it you can be sure that some pic's will be forthcoming !

Regards,
Mike

Mike72 - I was in the same position but dealer offered to part cover the early handback on my Mercedes which was 95% ofoutstanding payments. It swayed me to order for September delivery.

Cabbageman - Thanks, only a week to go! Hopefully I'll get some pics up asap. I know the old Caesium blue First Edition delate divides opinion on here, but for me the colour was the only one in the running after a string of silver and metallic greys over the past few years.

So... car is built and got a lovely vid of it at the dealer.

Problem is... they have built it with white interior, when I spec'd black!!

Do I have choices? Been waiting over 10 weeks for this and none too pleased

Doah! I'm the idiot... Just checked order form and it does say 'Oyster'. No idea how it got in there. Alas my bad for not spotting before pushing the button.

:lol: . . oops! . . . ah well, it's not such a bad thing, you'll probably come around to realising that the lighter headlining makes for a far more pleasant interior, so the mistake could work out to be serendipitous after all ;) . . . enjoy the car!

Personally I prefer the light headlining, it's what I have on mine :)

Unlucky (or lucky depending on how you come to like it (or not!)). I literally spent hours poring over my order and I also asked for the VISTA print of the order to make sure - it's quite bizarre how things listed on the dealers order are listed completely differently (or not at all) on the VISTA form (which is what the factory use to build the car)

I picked up at the last minute that the seats where the Black/Oyster two-tone ones, when I wanted all black.......I will be disappointed if the two-tones had appeared when I open the door at handover/delivery.
