Here are a few pics, still awaiting wash and PPF on the nose so not yet driven it but hoping to this weekend:

Oh, the high ride height in earlier pic was transport mode.



Pretty car. Well done. Love it.
Thanks, I’m please how it turned out, let’s see how it drives... just sold a GR Yaris and Panamera ST GTS to make way for it, both mega cars in there own right, but I think this is the way forward and then try and have something alongside for sunny days and track days

Fur coat, no knickers, a.k.a. Cheshire spec.

To some, the 21” wheels are irresistible, so it’s understandable IMHO.
The back and silver 20s look good on the configurator but, as pointed out above, the black bits are blanks and look a bit cheap in the flesh. Still going for them though due to cost and dire local roads...

Yeah, I looked at a lot of cars on Autotrader to see what they actually look like. Different angles etc. Just too much black aero in them so felt the 21s were essential looks wise.

On a different note, had a go in one of Porsche's press Taycans on Monday (thank you Steve Cropley). It was on standard suspension - none of the fancy bits. Very impressed by the ride and handling. Sometimes less is more.....

I saw them load this yesterday as I was there picking up my Cayenne S. Its behind your car in the photos so you cant see it.

It looked lovely and Neptune looks great. They haven't even got a demo yet and you beat Portsmouth to it. great stuff!

Ha, well you’ve seen it before me! I think it came through just before the impact of supply chain issue hit orders, so a bit lucky.. good team down Portsmouth aren't they

It's suggested September-ish is our cut off for spec.

It's nice to see real world deliveries. I'm looking forward to seeing one of these in Person.

Tonbridge said they'd be getting one in later this month/early next month.

Have you driven one with the “fancy bits “ by way of comparison ?

Just for info, the standard 8 way seats + memory package was what we were going for.

This doesn't include electric steering wheel adjustment or mirror adjustment linked to the memory package as far as I can make out.

You need a seat upgrade to add both these "features".

Happy to be corrected, it was one of the reasons we went with a seat upgrade.

I was looking at this also.

I'm waiting on a electrical survey of my house to see if what looks like a three phase incoming power is actually three phase. I was a little excited at the thought of having a 22kw ability to charge at home but then noticed it's another £1200 option on the car

However, if I do have three phase but don't go with the option of the 22kw AC, I'd still be charging at home at 11KW, which is just dandy.

I'm more inclined to option the 150KW DC option for £294 just to future proof the car in case that becomes a "thing". I'm less concerned about fast charging at home than I am fast charging when on a journey.

The thing about home charging is it doesn't need to be fast. You need fast charging when out and about as you don't want to wait, and are used to quick fuel stops. But at home, you normally charge over night and 99% of the time that's going to replenish what you used during the day. I have a 3 phase supply and I honesly wouldn't bother with this having run a Tesla M3P for the last 2 years.

You've gone for lane change + adaptive cruise...why not just go for the Innodrive option, which is essentially the same as the standard Tesla autopilot. Only £2k or so, so was a no brainer for me.

Someone else posted their spec with black alu sills, which are a NCO. Totally missed this and given I've blacked everything else, it makes sense.
