Welcome lumbob. Nothing wrong with 16" wheels. If anything, they should give you a smoother ride than 17 or 18 inch rims...IMHO
Enjoy Wednesday :)

Welcome lumbob

Don't worry about the es trim, the car will look great in passion red.

Also picking mine up on Wednesday too, was originally due the week after next so looks like deliveries have improved :)

You're not the only one, I've gone for ES trim too. I'm on a budget and personally couldn't justify the SE difference in price for a handful of extras. I put the money towards some things I really wanted like the driver display and full leather. That's one of the nicest things about the V40 options, it's set up to cater for individual taste.
Although I went for the 17" Mannan Alloys, having seen both 16" and 17" wheels in the 'flesh', I couldn't discern the difference in size, I'm not sure they are worth the £500 premium - that said there seems to me to be a marked difference between 17" and 18"...

Passion Red is a good choice too.
