I had a RR Sport prior to this and wanted to down size a little so, after looking at all the alternative, decided on the P250 R Dynamic HSE. I had asked about the hybrid but was advised that it wasn’t due out till 2021. So I handed the dealer the keys to my sport and was told that I should have the P250 some time in June. That was March 20th. A few days later lockdown was announced and obviously June delivery went out the window.
A few weeks I was browsing through the LR site one day and noticed that they had launched the PHEV version. I contacted Stratstone in Cardiff where I’d ordered my p250 from askingif I could swap it to a P300e. Eventually we agreed but they couldn’t give me a delivery as LR was shut. Once they had reopened I had a provisional date of mid Septembe, that was recently updated to the 7th.

I had a bit of a senior moment when ordering and specd it quite a bit. Summary below:-
Auto High Beam Assist (AHBA)
20" Style 5079, 5 split-spoke, Gloss Black
Gradated Linear Dark Aluminium trim finisher
16-way heated and cooled electric memory front seats with heated rear seats
Two-zone Climate Control with Second Row Vents and Temperature Control
Advanced Tow Assist
Firenze Red
360o Surround Camera
Ebony Morzine headlining
Heated steering wheel
Electrically adjustable steering column Black contrast roof
Deep Garnet/Ebony perforated Windsor leather seats with Deep Garnet/Ebony interior
Privacy glass
Detachable tow bar
MeridianTM Surround Sound System Fixed Panoramic roof.

i have to say that to date the dealer has been very good in terms of communication. Can’t wait to get behind the wheel now.

If you don't ask you won't get. Sometimes you don't get even if you do ask 🤔

I've asked for an umbrella for the last four car purchases but never got one, apparently the latest dealer doesn't stock them - did get a free load liner though.

I got a Range Rover umbrella, a Jaguar umbrella, side steps supplied & fitted half price, free fitting on Jaguar front mud flaps and a piece of chocolate birthday cake from the lovely young lady in the workshop office 😀 you just have to ask (or have the dealer directors mobile number on speed dial) 👍

Excellent spec you’ve chosen. I'm finding the relatively short wait for my brand new Evoque blooming frustrating.

Should I expect a free item them when I collect my new First Edition hopefully next week? Umbrellas seem to be mentioned a lot here!

I saw a video of someone collecting their new Evoque and receiving a black folder with the two key fobs held in them, along with a leather fob.

Thanks.

Oh that’s exciting, thought that was just a specific dealer thing.
