Dynamic Mode v Sport Mode query

Quick query, I understand (and its quite noticeable) the difference when you change from comfort mode to dynamic mode - it changes various settings INCLUDING (as I understand it, the gear change up points - for faster acceleration). My queries are these - 1. IF you are already in dynamic mode does a...

Re: New Member - Order placed

Hi Nickp, Im sure you'll be very happy with your Velar when you get it. You've gone for the same color combo as me (outside and inside) - in particular, I think the interior look in the RDynamic models is vastly improved by changing the headlining color from the default Ebony, to Light Oyster (like ...

Re: Suggested Order

Hi, I have a P300 RDynamic HSE - My thoughts are as follows:- The ONLY reason anyone would chose diesel over petrol is fuel cost - if that is not an issue - the petrol engine is just so much smoother - so defin go petrol. IF however you can stretch your budget to P300 (rather than P250) - then apart...

Re: D300? SVA? Talk me out of it? Or don't.

You should test drive the P300 in dynamic mode and sport setting ....quiet smooth and very powerful (dynamic mode almost entirely eliminates the turbo lag) .... dont write it off just because its a 4cylinder - Ive got one and I love it !!
Cheers

Re: Hello!

Welcome - I see you made the same choice as me, to opt for the light (oyster) headlining, rather than the ebony that comes standard with all RDynamic models - I have that exact internal color combo, HSE light oyster/ebony seats and light headlining and I really think its the best color combination o...

Re: D180 or P250

Hi,
its really a diesel v petrol argument - I prefer petrol and you will find the P250 much smoother and more powerful - BUT you will pay a price at the fuel pump for that - IF you can live with that (like me) - then I think petrol is a no brainer
Just my opinion.
