    Technically you are correct it has always been possible to reclaim VED. SORN'ing a car has always resulted in an automatic refund and if you sold a car in the old days you were quite within your rights to take the disc off the screen post it to Swansea and ask for a refund of whole months, though it was far more common to sell the car as as includes "X months tax". If sold into the trade the first thing the trader would do would always be to claim back the remaining tax so as not to waste money while it sat on the forecourt.
    The change with the abolition of tax discs is that now on change of ownership, or disposal into the trade, the DVLA now automatically cancel the VED and send the former keeper a cheque for the the balance of remaining full months ( unless monthly DD when they just cancel the DD) pretty much the same as if you SORN it.

    Probably worked out by an account* and and double checked by a solicitor - they are both use to running multiple concurrent charging.

    If the quicker performance is important to you then the upgrade from LR AWD to P- seemed good value (to me, I upgraded).

    Range of the P- will be exactly the same as LR AWD. It's only the bigger wheels of the P+ that cost a little range over the aero 18s.
    Physically, the cars are the same. But the Performance model unleashes the full power potential adding a cool 100 hp over the LR AWD, which is a bargain for the £1500 cost difference, presuming you want performance. P+ gives you track mode (less conservative stability control) and a higher speed limiter, plus the bigger wheels, lower suspension, upgraded brakes and a few bits of cosmetic trim.

    Unless you need a towbar fitted, I would upgrade to the P- otherwise you are very likely to lose out on resale (unless you are planning to keep it for a very long time).

    I thought P- also did track mode?

    Pretty sure track mode is one of the features of the P+ package
