I have a deposit placed for a First Edition in Photon Red, but I hate the Gloss Charcoal Veneer that is the only 'finisher' available on this model (I would be happy with Gloss Black, Monogram Aluminum or Aluminum Weave, but they are not options on the FE). Does anybody know any workarounds to either get this changed pre delivery or as an after delivery fix. I guess that finding any solution is highly unlikely and I will have to just 'put up with it', but as I dislike it so much I thought it worth asking.

Thanks

Andy

I would think it highly likely that you could get your dealerto fit different trim after you have taken delivery but the parts ae likely to be expensive!. After a year or so there will no doubt be some cars written off and you should be able to get the parts from a breaker. There is a well established network of supply and I would start by asking my local Jaguar resoration specialist to put an eqnquiry out.

This is the only reason I didn't went for the FE. I realy dislike the ash veneer look. Now went for a HSE spec with most of all the options from the FE.....

I read in another topic that somebody got homelink as extra on the FE. So maybe ask your dealer? It could also be a possibility to wrap the ash veneer elements in glossblack.

Every time I saw a Red FE with the Gloss Charcoal Veneer it's like a pain for my eyes.
If they actually had a red I might have been tempted, but the Photon 'Orange' does not look good to me at all.

I don't mind the wood veneer but I can understand why some would prefer something a little more modern in an EV.

When I got my Model S I opted for gloss black finisher because "fake wood makes as much sense in a Tesla as it does on the bridge of the USS Enterprise" (quoting myself here, yikes). But this is a Jag.. I can't help but feeling it does make sense this time.. I might wrap the outside (none of the FE colors really work for me) but I think I'll leave the interior of my FE as-is.
