Hi all,
I have just pull the trigger on the F-Pace SVR and I'm exited. I currently drive a C43 AMG Coupe (I should be C63S, I know, but winters here can be harsh I do need AWD) but I knew that I will be needing something much more practical next year. I did my research and based on many reviews and figured I should test drive F-Pace SVR so I can possibly order one to be delivered in 2024 before they shut down the production. I test drove the car I immediate fell in love with how it drives and feels like a much lighter car but you guys know it all already.
I went inside to spec a car and the dealer told me that few of the options cannot be chosen anymore. But I was shown a 2022 SVR they had on the floor. It was absolutely fully loaded I mean every single option, the SV special paint "deep desire red", but since it was 2022 car and it was registered with the dealership in December 22 so the 5 year warranty clock already started. The sticker price was crazy high PLN 727k (roughly $173k - however no additional dealer mark-up - it was as it is in the catalogue - NOTE luxury cars are all crazy expensive here. the only "mark up" is the taxes ~19% import tax already payed by dealer and 23% VAT right after sale, -from the rest he will obviously have to pay income tax, but that is another story).
I half-jokingly said that should be way cheaper because of the warranty already running and if it was I am willing to wire the money for the car today. And I got a PLN 50k ($12K) discount right off the bat and I've realized that they really need to sell that car, so after 4h of negotiating I manage to get it down to PLN599k ($142k), which is such a good deal that I went with immediately, even though I was planning to buy it next year. It is getting ready to be PPFed now and I am picking it up by the end of the month. I am extremely exited:) I guess I won't be needing my C43 anymore. Any tips for new owner other than to check and change oil more often then ever before in my life? ;)

Thanks for all the warm replies.
I am getting the car to be PPFed right now. The detaling guys suggested using a matte transparent wrap instead of gloss one. (Gloss one on gloss black elements - the rest matte). They claim that it will look amazing and matte will help define all the lines and shapes in body work. However I am not sure if I want to risk losing the nice look the car already have.
I do think that matte black cars look bit plasticy but this “deep desire red” may be nice and even more unique.
Any suggestions what should I go for?
I went with matte pff. Thanks for the good recommendation. It made the car even better if I may say so myself. Here is the final result (the badges will come back after the PPF settles in)
