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 from the extra power - in RDynamic model the P300 gets the twin exhaust finishers included (but the P250 doesnt) - I think they signficantly improve the sporty look of the car.
You definitely need glass in the roof - I have sliding panoramic but to be honest never open it - so fixed is good enough.
Also - RDynamic models get the ebony headlining automatically BUT you can chose to change it (at no cost) back to light oyster - I suggest you look at models with ebony headlining vs. light oyster headlining ..... I think the light color makes the interior feel much lighter and brighter, more so than just the glass roof.
I have heads up ... its good.... but a very costly add on and not essential.
Also if you go P300 you can then also option in air suspension, which improves ride AND gives you height adjustment features too.
Hope this helps.
Cheers
Just a thought...if like me you like your car with lower end pull - with the Diesel you get a lot of low end power - I've not driven the Petrol & to be honest was put off by the 4 cylinder over the 6 for the D300 - I've been petrol all my life(50 Years old) but have to say I love my GLC V6 Diesel engine...and the Velar has more Maximum torque (Nm/rpm) 700/1,500-1,750 than my present GLC.
FYI the Petrol above has 400/1,500-4,500 - but is quicker to 62MPH ;)

Hugely rate the fixed pan roof (better than the sliding due to the bar in the middle of the sliding roof when closed). Warms the car on sunny winter days and as summer is limited in the UK, I would not worry about it. Plus you can always pre cool the car.

I also wouldn’t buy the velar without privacy glass, as it looks much less sleek without it, in my opinion.

After test driving (and falling in love) with an SE spec the last 36 hrs.... I’d say panoramic roof is a must. It just makes the interior look incredible!

IMHO the heads up display I can live with out. I prefer the Kaikoura stone to the Byron Blue but your spec pics look beautiful!

The Velar I had on test was on 22inch and looked stunning but I’ll go 20/21 on my order to save cash, be slight more comfortable and save cash.

Ultimately, enjoy! What over discovered this week is it’s a beautiful car and people love it regardless of the spec outside.

As a owner of Velar in Kaikoura stone I can confirm it's a great choice. Looks very classy and it's very easy to maintain. You won't regret it.

You got any pictures of Kaikoura Stone? I just can’t put my finger on if it looks more brown or gold

I picked up my P250 R Dynamic HSE last wednesday , its byron blue and i think looks stunning . Personally I didnt want the black pack , seems everyone else does , but I love the copper highlights . I went for black roof pano roof , lets so much light in . I stuck with the 21" wheels , .my must haves were HUD and heated steering wheel . I put other bits and bobs on but not sure if I would have bothered if I didnt get such a good deal .

Pano glass roof increases the greenhouse effect in my opinion , a solar panel might be more useful!
