Hi all,

So basically I have ordered my car and am counting seconds to pick it up now (about 7-10 days to go). A friend was interested in three options and as he is not yet a member of the forum I have offered to help him with the decision.

As usual, your help is invaluable therefore would appreciate your thoughts - he will not buy on PCP and changes cars every 2 to 4 years.

Option 1 is pretty much the spec I chose myself:

Velar D240 HSE
Sliding Panoramic Roof
Santorini Black
Oyster Interior with extended leather
Privacy Glass
21 5 Split Spoke 5047
Front and rear premium mats

Option 2 (about £600 more I think than option 1):

Velar R-dynamic SE D240
Indus Silver
Black roof
Oyster interior
Sliding Pan Roof
Air suspension
21 10 spoke 1033
Privacy Glass
Metal Front treadplates
Configurable ambient lighting
Electrically adjustable steering wheel
Front and rear premium mats
Terrain Response 2
All terrain response

Option 3 (about £3k more than option 1):

Velar R-dynamic SE D240
Silicon Silver
Oyster with black interior
Black Roof
Sliding Pan Roof
Air Suspension
21 10 spoke 1033
Privacy Gadd
Configurable ambient light
Deployable side steps
Front and rear premium mats
Terrain response 2
All terrain response

My thinking is that option 2 you are paying for loads that are standard on HSE, but for option 2 and 3 you have r-dynamic.

Difficult one - what do you think?

Option 2 looks best to me but you'd want to add in extended leather.

HSE adds very little other than better seats, electric adjust steering, a few driver/park assists and the extended leather. There's a lot you won't get that is in your 2 and 3 including nice extras like the better looking alloys and air suspension.

I would go with option 2 and skip the electric steering wheel, because I find it pretty useless and expensive. You need very different drivers to make permanent use of it. Usually it's enough to adjust the seat.
