Beautiful! Congrats!
The only thing that bugs me about the new SVR is the exhaust pipes being worked into the bumper like that. It was such a sporty look on the prior models and now it's very e-class. Otherwise I love the CF hood and everything else.

Congrats! If I recall this is your third SVR now?

Yes indeed. I briefly had a black one, then a blue '16, and now this blue '18.

This one was ordered in late October '17, so I waited a little over 5 months.

Congrats on the truck. Beautiful color combo.. Does the exhaust sound any different to you as you have had the other years?
Also curious if you feel any power difference ?
Should be picking up new truck this week myself.

I also have an 18. Overall the vehicle is much better but I find the exhaust too tame now. It's still sporty at high rpms but at low to mid rpms is much quieter. Okay before maybe it was a bit childish but that was the charm. I think they tamed it too much. I'm curious if there is a way to disable the valve all together.

Very nice SVR! Haven’t seen one with the exposed carbon fiber hood on the streets yet.

Stock door sills are in aluminum with "Range Rover" text, not illuminated.

That's a good summary of the situation. It's definitely quieter than the previous version and more difficult to get crackles. However I am OK with it, as the previous version was a bit gimmicky and had a muffled sound. When I do hear crackles in the '18 they have a sharper sound that I prefer. I just wish there was more of it.

The heads-up display is markedly improved. More info, and a better color (whitish vs. amber) makes it more visible.
