I've been told that ceramic tint, rather than UV (smoked) tint keeps heat from the sun out better. I've always had UV tint so I can't verify that. The next car I buy gets a layer of both, and clear ceramic on the windshield.

I didn't order the HUD on my configuration, nor did I order they 18 way performance seats. I think I would order the same car with the HUD and possibly the 18 way heated/cooled seats. The seats are a toss up as I'm comfortable with the standard 10 way seats.

The best part of heated glass is melting ice. If you always park in a garage, it is a pointless feature IMO. FMVSS requires defogging systems to work quickly now, hence why cars now run the AC when you turn on the defrost. It is to meet the time requirement to defog a windshield. AC air is very low humidity so it dries fog quicker.

But... Until somebody told me there were wires in the glass, I never saw them. Now I can't unsee them when parked. When driving though, I am looking so far ahead the wires are not in focus. One thing I can say about the Jaguar windshield is that it is VERY straight. No waviness that I've seen in other cars.

I personally like the heated glass because sometimes I do want to melt the ice in a hurry when the garden hose is frozen and I parked outside. Or I wake up at a hotel parked in the open with ice on the car.

Oddly enough, I'd order the 22" rims then buy a set of 18's for daily use from an aftermarket vendor. Put track tires on the 22's and Runflat All Seasons on the 18's. OEM 22's are about $450 to $1100 each when ordered at purchase and are guaranteed to fit, and come with good starter rubber for track days. Can't beat the price, that's less than 1/2 of what it will cost you to buy them from JLR, and about the same as rims/tires not really designed for your car's dimensions.

Got an FE in Photon here. I might not choose Photon Red if I redid it, just because it attracts bad attention. Then again, it attracts good attention too. Guys photographing the car at Fry's. So not sure. Heated windshield? I love it. I might try the different seats and see if I like them, but that's not a big deal as I really like the standard FE seats. Oh, I'd wait a few months then get the car for less.

As for wheels, I'd stick with the 20s it came with. I may still pick up 18s for a better ride, not that the ride is bad but 18s would make it better for little handling tradeoff in the real world.

I have almost the exact same combo (minus the black exterior pack) plus the cold weather pack, cabin air ionization, Adaptive Dynamics/AdSR, HUD, configurable ambient lighting, activity key and aluminum monogram finisher. If I were to order again I would probably skip the 4-zone climate (as I drive with no rear passengers 95% of the time) and the configurable ambient lighting. I love the Blue/Tan combo and prefer the ebony morzine headliner to the suede option. I will never get a light headliner again after the stains I got in my previous car. I use the activity key more than I thought I would cos the "smart key" is such a brick! And of course I will never order a car without a HUD again

If you had 22's I would consider going down to 20s. I went with the black 20's and think it was the perfect choice. The 22s looks awesome but I've gotten sooo many complements on the black 20's and I feel their ride quality is better and tire life will certainly be better. Can't say if the 22's will affect range but wouldn't be surprised if they did. I'm super happy with the black 20s. I do wish I had the upgraded seats though. The 10 way seats are just ok but felt that the 18 way seats were more comfy and had lumbar support that I could adjust. That's the one thing I'd go back and get that I don't have.

Silicon silver

I went for a silicon silver SE and am surprised how few people have talked about that as a favored color as I think it looks lovely and a number of passers by have stopped me to in the street to say as much. I added the black exterior pack and black 20"wheels though I do have buyer's remorse about the wheels as I think I would now have preferred wheels with some amount of silver in them like the 5068 or 5070. A shame the carbon insert wheels only come in 22" as I don't regret having 20's. Other than that I went for the 10 way heated memory seats though I probably would have preferred the 18 way with its additional settings for more adjustable comfort. I also went for privacy glass and meridian surround system which I don't regret at all. I have no idea if I would have been better off with the matrix LED headlights and the premium LED's are just fine with me and I didn't have to pay the extra cost. I have the oyster interior which I far prefer to the previous many cars I have had with black. It makes the car feel might airier and I haven't had any staining problems even though both my kids and I wear jeans more often than not. I did get the seats coated with some sort of protection though when I had the car ceramic coated so maybe that helped. I couldn't justify the cost of the HUD, and since I have never had it on other cars I don't miss it, but maybe one day when it comes as standard it will become on of those things that I wonder how I ever did without it. Who knows? Other than that I took the ionisation pack which now seems a waste of money as I have no idea if it does anything and as far as I can tell outside smells still permeate the vehicle just like they have done with every other car I have owned. Air and active suspension are a must as far as I am concerned, ditto the 360 degree camera, and no remorse with those at all.
All in all I absolutely love driving the car and I like the way it looks, but as so many people have said the infotainment not only takes a helluva lot of getting used to but is more on the "sucks" side of the slider than a "win"

Thanks for the feedback and from the pic that color looks awesome. I'm going to see if I can find one in that color. I agree with you on the oyster interior just wonder why I have so much jean staining even with the protection the dealer installed. Maybe their product, Smartshield isn't good.

my salesman shared light interior would show stains. I shared my experience of ride loss with larger wheels / less sidewall (on Acura RDX loaner when my 2007 RDX was new), which he confirmed with his testing.
I bought for 98% of the driving time. Basic luxury S with black leather, very tasteful interior. I bought from dealer inventory (another backed off a lease) and lucky to get optioned just enough with heated seats and best stereo. Performance seat noticeable 2% of the driving time. Donated the saved bobble option money to charity.

Color? Anything you like. Tickets are expensive and White blends in well at speed and is cooler. Red for 10 years was enough

Thankful I can own a fast, comfortable, quiet, unique (non-Tesla in CA) luxury car (my first at 59y.o.) and drive like there is no tomorrow 2% of the time. Regen works great and the planet thanks us for going electric
