SVR & Lease Help

After 3.5 years of my first RRS (MY16 AB SDV6) and many more (albeit annoying minor fixable) issues than any car I’ve ever owned, we are doing the natural thing and getting another JLR product despite hearing many horror stories from V8 S/C engine owners recently. That aside, a few things I could do with some help with:

1) I really really resent the idea of paying £4.5 or £6k for colour upgrades, I’m ordering santorini black - has anyone considered a wrap or spray - one that doesn’t make me look like a footballer (I don’t want the Est Blue and preference would have been the Carpathian gray I have on my current car - best colour I’ve ever had - but not an option I’m told).

2) wheels - are 22s worth the 2k uplift, I can spray the 21s black for £200.

3) anyone used the puncture repair kit, I assume it doesn’t work, but I also call out LRA if I get a flat so assume a reduced section alloy is something they carry to get the car home. I’ve had two flats in the last year so will miss the full sized spare.

4) Residuals and the ball ache of trading out of my current RRS means I’m headed for the lease route. It works out much cheaper than PCP over three years assuming no residual at the end of the PCP. Any experiences here that I should worry about - just seems like a no brainer looking at the figures.

5) Assuming I go for lease, I’ve got the choice of private sale on current car or return to BMW Finance. Any views of whether it’s worth bothering to try to find a private sale - i’d be happy with CAP book trade in value despite it being in new like condition (I have it detailed annually and has full LR warranty for another 6 months) but car wow and lease company want way under CAP.


Thanks!

If you are opting for a lease, can you have it wrapped ?
Think i'd keep the 21s
Don't know about puncture repair kit, i would, same as you, call LR assist
Have no experience with leasing, just got to accept you are renting rather than owning
If it were me, and i was happy with the PCP settlement , i would do that rather than potential for loads of aggro trying to sell privately

Thanks that’s helpful.

Good question re the wrap, I need to work that out, I would assume I’d have to remove it before the term is up - it’s just the colour change with the DVLA that may be difficult as a non owner.

I don't believe LRA carry numerous spare wheels with them, if they can't fix it, it will be a flat bed and to the garage, not home

I’m sure you don’t have to inform the Dvla of a colour change when you wrap it,their is a guy up the road from me with a maclaren & every time I see it it’s a different colour,if you have to inform Dvla he will be constantly sending his log book off. Andy.

That's correct - when wraps first came out the DVLA did NOT need to be notified however, they recently changed this and now a full colour change wrap needs to be notified so that you get an updated V5 doc.

Ball ache...

Just out of curiosity and interest can I ask what these horror stories are, as I assume we are referring to the 5.0L V8 S/C engine.

Cheers
