Wow, some amazing configurations! Thanks a lot for sharing everyone. Lots to consider...

Still disappointing to lose Carpathian Grey, but in line with suggestion will ask the dealer about the possibility of a stock option! Nothing ventured nothing gained!

I'm in the same situation having been told Carpathian Grey discontinued, after a lot of consideration settled for Byron Blue with Black Pack and Black Gloss 20in Wheels. I don't know whether you all know but Adaptive Dynamics is no longer standard for MY19 Velars its an £800.00 option.
There has been some changes to the option packs too.

Hi Guys, I think the 2 best colors for Velar are Carpathian and Aruba. I was almost ordering Aruba as it looks so amazing, depends on light it looks white, silver or gold, pictures cannot give justice to Aruba. I think that Aruba should have a Black Pack as the gray grill does not look so good with this color.
Eventually I ordered the Carpathian but if that wouldn't be an option I would definitely go for Aruba
I think corris is also nice but every second velar is in corris and actually there are a lot of light gray cars on the streets. But it really depends on personal taste. I don't think there's a bad color offered for Velar

What's funny you can still choose Carpathian in online configuration

I really wanted carpathian grey but settled for a Velar on the dealer lot. I’m so dang impatient.

I think carp grey is best looking color for this car but am happy with my sant black - all personal preference.

Don’t understand why they would remove such a great color choice.

This came into my dealership and I was sold on the combination, now sitting outside and getting plenty of positive comments.

Colour is Aruba, R-Dynamic, Black Contrast Roof, Privacy Glass and Satin Dark Grey 10 Spoke.

Aruba is one of those colours you need to see first hand, can have a faint gold tint in certain lights, other times it looks almost silver.

My Aruba outside in bright sunlight to show how this can change the colour a couple of shades between very light gold to light silver.

Some lovely colour options I had never seen before in different light conditions. Aruba is quite good. Carpathian Grey is way too dark for the Contrast roof to show to full effect. But nice in an all-too-British sort of way. We love our greys. Santorini Black can look so good with big alloys and the R-dynamic trim.

They should have a good on any new Corris Grey orders. Lol.
