Well that was unexpected!

Thank you to Parky-SPP Microbe MBlackhurst for pointing me to Motorfinity.

I ended up ordering an R 20 years, built last week, delivery approx. March, great spec.

I hadn't even entertained the idea of a 20 years model, but the discount made it first choice.

My first Lapiz Blue!

Thanks again people ☺️

Great choice and the best colour!  What's the full extras spec., it would be a bit ironic if it's my cancelled order, given that we're near neighbours!  Mine was lapiz, akra, sunroof, rear camera and dcc.

Haha - it's possible!

 

The factory options on mine are -

 

Head up Display
Rear view camera
Dynamic chassis control (DCC)
Akrapovic titanium sport exhaust system
Black door mirrors with integrated indicators
Electric sliding/tilting panoramic glass sunroof with integrated roller blind
Premium metallic - Lapiz blue
19" Estoril black alloy wheel with anti theft wheel bolts

 

Ironically I think I saw your last Lapiz Blue before you 😜 - the delivery driver had 2 cars on 2 trailers - he pulled up opposite my house to switch the trailers around. Obviously I had a good look at the R on the trailer! He then hooked up & took yours around the corner!

Re. the R20, mine didn't have HUD so it might be a different one.  (Any chance you could PM me your price if you don't mind - I fully understand if you don't want to.)

If you go on the website which is public it gives you an idea on prices but the only one they have is a stock vehicle which may or may not have extras...the savings are worth it if you are eligible.

 

Some of the savings on other vehicles are vehicles are average and they have some great deals on brands i am looking at which i know carwow and dealers can't match.

 

I know a few who have bought and from the reviews if you are eligible it's a no brainer.

Cheers - and thanks again for the Motorfinity heads up! I hadn't even considered a 20 Year edition. 

I saved about 8.5K off list, so that made the decision for me 🙂

Apart from the HK its the same spec as my R20, which is fabulous! I particularly like the HUD and the Akra

 

Im sure you will be pleased when it arrives 🤩
