I just drove a Mineral White 40 M Sport out of Partridge BMW (Hampshire) - Wife loved it, so placed an order for a 50, now due May. Got Comfort+ and Visibility packs. I found the ride quite fidgety but it was on 22"s not 21"s and the 40 doesn't have air suspension, so I'm hoping for an improvement to Range Rover levels.

As for the demonstrators, limited supply I think. Doubt you will find a dealer with more than 1.

how about sky lounge and technology+ ? I'm definitely getting sky lounge but not sure about technology+, £5k is a big price for B&W and an inside camera

Also - everyone seems to order M sport, I'm probably the only one thinking Sport looks better than M sport, at least in alpine white...

@occam - You are not the only one who thinks the 'plain' Sport is better looking than the M Sport. I had come to that conclusion using the configurator, but to be honest I simply forgot when placing the order - the dealer simply defaulted to M Sport, and I didn't question it. Thank you for reminding me!

As for the Sky Lounge -- £3,500 for a albeit fancy sunroof, is too expensive, although you could argue on a £100k+ car who cares? Tech+ -- I don't need/what an inside camera (although I would pay for dash cams) and I'm not enough into my music to spend £5k!!

10 UK demonstrators were recalled and so struggling to find one near me! I ordered sport and then changed to M sport so was very torn on the decision!

I had a Msport 40 for a day with 22" wheels found the ride superb - but I'm coming up from a i3S - Last Range Rover I drove was in 1976 no experience of todays tech
My Msport 50 I've specified 22" Comfort +, Visibilty, Technology, Sky Lounge, Clear and bold, Titan Bronze and Tow bar - arriving December 6th

If you dont want the B+W you can specify 5DN well worth it
