New arrival next week

Post by Scuba » Wed Oct 09, 2019 7:11 pm

Picking up a 20MY R-dynamic Eiger grey P250 on Tuesday to replace my 17MY r-sport Santorini D180.
Obviously very excited after a quick turnaround of 2 weeks from order. :D

Dealer managed to find a similar model, shipped iit over and doing some retrofitting for me to get the spec I want. Painting alloys, retrofitting black pack and even painting my callipers yellow.

Is there anything I need to look out for or test before I drive away from the dealership? Any known issues with the new model year as I haven’t seen that many from scouting the forum? Infotainment revision number etc? Anything really to stop me having to pop back in?

Cheers

Hi scuba, I'm also waiting for my new MY 20 P250 S. Latest estimated delivery is now mid-November.

No issues that I am aware of have emerged so far on the facelifted XE. The latest Infotainment version is S19B. There is a thread about it that I started a few weeks ago.

Congrats and best of luck with your new cat.

Hi scuba,
Enjoy your new Xe, I collect mine 2 months ago and everything was A1 on handover, however my apple car play stopped working, but I soon figured it out, if your phone is not unlocked, apple car play won’t play! Just a useless tip!

Thanks both, glad to hear no stand out issues.

I must say I haven’t seen many of the new shape on the roads around the midlands yet. Still seem quite rare.

Had ours for a few months, no issues except the occasional bluetooth dropout, and every so often it wont find the USB on startup. Yellow calipers should look great on a grey car. If you are lucky it will have the split fold rear seat optioned. Still kicking myself for that oversight, I got pretty much everything else...

Yeah I have split fold seats. It’s the SE model I’ve gone for.

Options I wanted:

Black 18” wheels (dealer is powder coating the templars for me)

Black pack (dealer is retrofitting, apparently the window surrounds are a ball ache though to replace, but I insisted)

Split rear seats
Heated front seats
Touch pro duo

Options I’m getting which I wasn’t overly fussed on:

Rear heated seats,
Clear view mirror,
Mud flaps (already fitted to show room car).

The retrofitted retailer options also means the RRP is still sub £40k so miss the higher road tax banding.

One thing I’m not getting but wanted was the space saver...but may get one and a new floor at a later date.

Managed to get the painted callipers thrown in too.
