I have a FE Corris Grey, with Black interior, non-performance seats, and 20Ē wheels. I recall a reviewer stating that his blue jeans left stains on the white seats of the I-Pace he was reviewing. At times, Iíve regretted not getting 22Ē with summer performance tires, but the 20Ē are still great and do provide a more wife compliant ride. My other toy has low profile tires and wife hates the ride. The grey does blend in with the other majority of silver/black/grey vehicles on the road, which is perfectly fine for me, especially the times when my right foot gets a little over active. The front half of the dash is full leather wrapped with deviated stitching. The heated front window is great, especially useful to help clear off morning dew. The imbedded wires in the glass are not a problem for me, either during the day or at night. On the other hand, I typically wear polarized sunglasses during the day, which may mitigate the starry glare some readers have complained of. Polarized glasses adversely impact the readability of the HUD. Iíve only used the assisted steering with ACC a few times, but I simply prefer to drive without it activated. Note, Iíve rarely used the cruise control feature on my cars through my entire life.
Must haves: air suspension, adaptive dynamic ride suspension, powered lift gate, HUD, Premium lighting, 4 zone climate, suedecloth headliner, Meridian sound, cold package.
I also purchased wheel and tire, as well as, dent, glass, interior insurance. The cost of the latter was about twice what it would cost a pointless dent professional to remove 1 or 2 door dings, so I thought it was worth the cost. So far (knock on wood), I havenít needed to use either insurance policy.
