The bright blue car is an RR Sport, in Velocity ultra metallic paint, a £3,570 extra!. Looked a bit gaudy I thought.

DS infotainment somewhat eons ahead of my old Jeep, will do for me. Seems to play all the tunes on my iphone whilst its in my pocket without any problem. I drove past a Kodiaq yesterday, they look very boring - even more sedate colour palette than LR.

Wow. £3,570 just for paint?!? :shock: Somebody will pay for it, though. Footballers, etc...

Completely agree on the Kodiaq colour options; Petrol Blue is about as interesting as it gets. It was fairly boring and predictable to drive, as well, although some consistency from the DSG box was a welcome departure from my DS auto.

HamsterWheel, the car looks well smart.

Are the wheels part of the graphite pack or were they just an extra on themselves?
On order:

The wheels are just an extra - £325. I think they make such a difference.

Steve - had a loaner Ewok in what looks like the very same colour earlier this week with all the trim elements and wheels being gloss black for a real contrast - it's certainly most striking, my wife loved the colour, I didn't! For me a bit too 'shouty' and I admit to feeling a bit of a wally driving it :oops:

Was there any other add ins colour wise, including the lettering on the body work?

Any other photos would be welcome, really smart looking car

Now, only extras are as per my signature below. For some reason the combination of Byron Blue, the blacked out rear windows and the grey wheels just click. It's what they're using on all the Press fleet Velars.
Too filthy with all the road grime to take any more pics now!
