I am a Dream Edition reservation holder and like everyone else was told to finalize my order.
I have tried talking to my sales advisor as well as a different sales rep over the phone to get some concrete answers regarding certain features that are important to me. Wondering if anyone here has had better luck.

I want to know if the Dream :
1. Has HUD
2. I know it has soft close doors but Is there a closing and/or opening mechanism similar to Tesla and EQS or Rolls Royce where you push a button or pedal and door(s) close?
3. Rear passenger windows- will there be a sun/privacy screen and if yes, is it manual or motorized?
4. Google earth or similar satellite navigation mode?
5. Is the destination entry in the navigation mode "destination ready" for example in a tesla you can just say drive to Starbucks or any destination instead of saying the street address of the place. I understand Dream has Alexa so if would see. It should have this.
6. Homelink or garage door opener GPS based like in tesla with auto open and close feature?
7. Mood or ambient lighting?
8. Any type of cabin sound modes for generating artifical sounds for acceleration etc?
9. Does anyone know from any conversation if the interior cabin noise on the highway is more or less than a Tesla ? How about compared to a S class?

Probably have a few more but any comments would be greatly appreciated! I am going to try getting to the Palm Beach studio next week and try to get some answers hopefully the event next week will give me these too!

Thanks!

I have answers to a few of the questions:
1. Has HUD
No

2. I know it has soft close doors but Is there a closing and/or opening mechanism similar to Tesla and EQS or Rolls Royce where you push a button or pedal and door(s) close?
No. But rumors say it may come later or mechanism may be installed and enabled later.

3. Rear passenger windows- will there be a sun/privacy screen and if yes, is it manual or motorized?
Yes - motorized. After closing window with switch, engaging switch again causes shade to go up. Depressing switch causes shade to go down. Second press causes window to go down.

A few more answers:

4. Satellite images on screen . . . I've seen no indication thus far. I spoke with Zak Edson, Lucid's head of Retail Operations, about this and he said it might come with a later update. This was some months ago, so things might have changed.

6. Homelink . . . There's a Homelink icon on the screen, but I don't know if it geolocates for automatic operation.

7. Mood or ambient lighting . . . Yes, and with a good bit of color and intensity control.

9. Interior cabin noise . . . Lucid abandoned its earlier plans to use acoustic glass. Edson told me this was because they benchmarked the car against the Mercedes S Class for NVH, and the Air bettered the Mercedes metrics. (This would have been against the outgoing ICE S Class, as the new EQS and its ICE counterpart are not yet available.) We just bought a Tesla Model S Plaid that is considerably quieter inside than the 2015 Model S it replaced, yet wind and tire noise is still noticeable. Tesla claimed it will have active noise cancellation but subsequently said it will come with a later software update. As I haven't yet been in an Air outside a Design Studio, I can't compare them directly for noise.

As I've got to pick someone up at the Miami airport today, we're making our fourth swing by the Lucid Design Studio there. I'll see if I can wrangle any more information about these and other questions from one of the sales reps.

Thank you and yes it would be great if they share any new or additional info!

I visited the Miami Design Studio again today. Sorry, guys, but no new information on anything. The sales rep to whom I spoke said they are not being told anything at this point that is not being made public by Lucid. They had heard the same thing my Delivery Advisor told me: Dream Edition production would start in 2-4 months.

Thanks for the feedback, disappointing that they are being so tight lipped even with Dream reservation holders and yet are pushing us to convert to an order. I can somewhat get the no test drives part but not even having a complete spec and equipment/options list is unheard of.
Also confused by the delivery timing information. On one side they keep reiterating "deliveries will be by the end of the year" and then also "production will start in 2-4 months". Which one is it?! 2 and even 3 months would still be barely by year end but 4 months would clearly be 2022!

Regarding deliveries, I think they're hoping and hedging at the same time. But it is definitely frustrating.
