Hey guys.. ordered a P380 R-dynamic in Narvik, blacked out with Eclipse interior and decent amount of the options back at the end of June. I was just updated that it should be at the dealer on the 13th today. So pumped! Live in NYC if anyone else is in the area.

Pics from the rendering of my build. Let me know your thoughts! May wrap it soon after arriving in a matte dark grey or black to keep it protected and make it unique:

Thanks. Main ones outside of the visuals were the terrain 2, drive pro, park assist & 360 for the wife (have a tight space to maneuver into around concrete pillars in our building's garage), HUD.. also some minors like illuminated scuffplate, premium mats etc

Kinda wishing I upgraded seats after not knowing about the lumbar support (or lack there of).. also would go back and do extended leather for dash after seeing at dealer. Oh well lol

I wish I had gone for the upgraded seats as well, wife would have loved the massage feature. But couldn't justify the £4k when I could have better options instead. Sounds like you got all the good stuff anyway. Look forward to seeing the real life photos.

@velofixed - I went back and forth a few times! I do like some of the contrast, but as mentioned I'm probably going to wrap it in a matte finish that will contrast slightly with the black pack. Seeing it fully blacked out may change decision to color wrap though :)

@Omar1 - That's where I landed too... I added the cooled seats option as well, but I've only sat in one for a ~15 min test drive so I have no idea how these seats will do on a long journey. I do love my lumbar support haha

Just confirmed pickup for 10/17, so will make sure to get some good shots to post for everyone.

Hah thanks - looks like we'll be (almost) twins :p

I think I'm going to wrap it with Xpel Stealth and the A/B/C pillars/roof in their Xpel Ultimate to retain some contrast.

These are Marc's (mge.92) pics for reference which you might've seen already. Since he didn't have a Narvik base, I think mine will come out a bit darker matte:

P380NarvikEclipse, that's a beautiful spec! Awesome choice.

For anyone wondering, I had the opportunity to get up close and personal with one spec'd in Narvik black with the black pack and gloss black 7-spoke 22's at a launch event last night, and I can confirm it looks absolutely badass. Pictures don't do it justice.

In fact, I'm actually on the fence about now adding the black pack/wheels after having seen it.

You won't be sorry!

Very happy to hear this. I was a little worried I'd want more contrast once in person, but can't wait to pick it up next Tuesday. Will share pics then &#x1f44d-1f3fc;

Thanks! Those are the 20" wheels. Supposed to pick up tomorrow barring any unforeseen issues and will take some in-person pics. They're doing all the service action items today, so fingers crossed that all is well.

Fantastic. Those particular wheels look DOPE in 20" form. I think you've solidified my choice. Hope you get to pick up the rig today!! Post pics when you can. CONGRATULATIONS!!

Why yes it did! Literally just got back from the dealer, and I'm so thrilled with the way it came out. Here's some iPhone pics, and I'll try to get some proper pics in the coming week or so:

Thanks! Glad you like. Have been very happy with the ride so far. I'm still contemplating the wrap job.

Re: blurring. I go back and forth on whether it's worth it... the Driver's Privacy Protection Act passed in 1994 here making it so it's illegal to look up license plates' personal info like address and name unless you're law enforcement etc. Plus, I guess I'm just not too paranoid, and am lucky to park in a private high rise garage with security. If someone wanted to track me down, it'd be more likely from driving around with my plate exposed IMO.

Here's a slightly snarky article on the topic :lol: : https://jalopnik.com/why-do-we-always-blur-license-plates-on-the-internet-1691298199

And here's the official DMV site stating only police officers can look up personal info under "how do I find a person by their license plate": https://www.dmv.org/license-plate-faqs.php
