MINI ordered please help

Hello, I am new to the forum, below car is for my sister actually but I configured it. I really like the car and have a bit more time to change the configuration as wanted, so please help me out.

Here are the specs for her 5 door MINI:

Euro Spec Mini Cooper with Chilli Package
MINI visual boost (no navigation)
Truffle punched leather

My questions are as follows:

1) does she get a better sound system with the MINI Visual Boost and the Chilli package. Dealer says it is a bit better than standard but less good than HK system?

2) does it matter that truffle leather also has brushed leather inserts, it is not full leather, will that get dirty...had no clue it had partly brushed leather

3) will there be new leather colors introduced/inserts for the dash? MINI configurator for Germany as well as UK is mostly down, I assume they are making changes.

4) Now the tricky one, if she takes PIANO LACK (already ordered) then she does not get the LED strip in the doors (I assume that is the only LED strip edition). Does she get the LED strip with MINI YOURS FIBER alloy inserts?
Are there LED strips on the front console

5) Is the ring around the visual boost (6,5" screen) one ambient light line or is it broken down with space in between. Videos of the mini boost online show that the ring around the screen is broken down, and on some of the photos it is fully lighten up (one line)

MINI is already ordered but there is still some small room for changes before it reaches production.

I also must add that the car is great. I have a much bigger new car right now and need to figure out a way to buy a bigger car for the family and have the MINI as my daily ride. It is fairly complex to do, but as I am sooooo impressed with the way the MINI drives and the pleasure that I want one too now.

Thanks a lot!

1yes an extra pair of speakers 6 rather than 4 . Sounded fine to me.
4 no if you go piano black no led strips but still mood lighting in the door handles lower dash etc. I like it.

5 the ring is a whole series of leds that light up As one or in bits according to what you set it for. Hope this helps no idea about the others!
I too would go for the fibre alloy over piano black. Pb shows every finger it but if you can afford it the extra mood lights look v nice.
Your first pic of the led ring is most representatives of real life the other two show it with nothing but some reflections it's truly lovely and gives a continuous light blue for phone green for eco it can be a rev counter or if you alter the air con it goes blue for cold r r red for warmer but I'm spoiling the surprise wait and see its fab.
Ps you won't regret the colour choice.I always turn to look at mine and get that flutter!
That's lovely rotten bend. Wish it had been available when I ordered mine.well worth the extra imo.classy and the led strips look great.
