It’s unreal! Surely someone can make a decision and stick with it.
I get that they want an “exclusive SVR” colour... so why not pick that months ago and have it on the configurator?
Part of me would rather have Eiger Grey than my confirmed Corris Grey, as I like the slightly lighter shade. My current SQ5 is a really dark grey, so I’d quite like something a bit lighter to differentiate. I’m not fussed either way though... but everything seems to suggest that Corris will become Eiger before any are built.

Another example of what a shambles this release has been.

I keep abreast of most JLR launches, and have bought a few of the first models off the production line since 2013, but it is staggering how this one will have taken almost a year from the first reveal to customer deliveries - and there still seems to be some tweaking over launch colours still!
It’ll be Sod’s law that I’ll end up with a Corris car weeks before they start rolling out an exclusive SVR grey which I would have preferred! Certainly not going to delay my order any further though as can’t wait to get behind the wheel!

This is why I have a Merc on order. Having read this, I feel that my decision has been vindicated.

Steve C - quick question (bit off-topic, sorry): Why the C class estate and not the GLC if it was in preference to an F-Pace?

Good point Matteus.

It was partly down to a change in situation which came at the same time as me getting fed up with waiting for the SVR - my OH decided she wanted to hang onto the family car for a while longer, meaning we no longer needed an F-Pace type car. So given the 250kg weight advantage and lower centre of gravity compared to the GLC, the Estate was a good choice :) I needed some practicality otherwise it would have been the coupe, but life's full of compromises...

Today I spoke with Jaguar HQ again.
They advised that if I have a confirmed order for Corris Grey, then I would be getting a Corris Grey car.
The substitute will be Eiger Grey, but there is currently no specified date when that will change.

I was told to expect a Corris Grey car in April!

I have been given a build date of 1 March for pick up on 27 March - last date for spec changes is 30 Jan so Need to finalise colour before then. Black, grey or silver - I keep changing my mind!

Hopefully it will come before JLR have sacked so many people, that there's an insufficient number left to build it ..... :mrgreen:

Not sure if many are aware but I've added the "Smartphone Pack" to my SVR order. It's not on the configurator as has only just been launched but essentially gives you Apple Car Play via iPhones and the equivalent for Android. It's a £200 option but for me, is worth it (having had InControl Apps on previous JLR cars I've found it useless).

Annoyingly still you have to have your phone plugged in for it to work but it makes the infotainment system so much more familiar (Apple maps, Apple Music can use Siri for SMS etc on the go.

I thought that Apple Car Play (and Android version) came as standard with the latest software?
