Critique my itinerary

Hi all, 3 of us (experienced snow/ice drivers) are coming to Iceland end of March 2024. We are renting a car, we know roads can be bad, so we do NOT want to push our time or be in a hurry. Looking for leisurely, allowing for the unexpected. Can you critique my itinerary? Am I spending too much time in places? Should I allow more time in others? Also, I'd love hotel recommendations (budget friendly for 3 late 30's/early 40's). Primary goal: Northern Lights!! But I have a lot of the sites on each drive listed.

Thank you so very much,

If your primary goal is to see the Northern lights, Iceland is not the best place to go to in the first place. And end of March is very late.
