So: originally I was going to go with a MCS Deep Blue, after seeing it in person at the F56 launch.

Now I have seen Moonwalk Grey, and really like that colour.

I don't know which one to go for now ...

Factors that influenced my colour choice included
  • heating on a hot day
  • showing up dirt
  • needing to be kept perfect to look good
  • being already common on the roads
  • visibility and safety
  • not standing out and attracting attention
It was almost a process of elimination...

Always a difficult decision to make. I find that that cars always look different in the showroom to what they actually look like on the road. Having said that, as the new models are presently as scarce as hens teeth, if you were to wait to make a fair comparison before placing your order, you may be waiting a long time !!
Don't judge your colour choice on how you think others may regard it as, at the end of the day, it's your choice not theirs (this advice comes from a man who drives VO !! - from reaction so far it's a love hate colour - fortunately I love it ). The last four cars I owned were all black so, although black was always on my list, I thought this time I'd have a complete change.
At the end of the day we all have our reasons for the colour we choose, so go for your gut feeling and you won't be disappointed.
So Volcanic Orange it is then - there you are decision made !!

Personally, I think midnight black is lovely. But then so is the white silver, the volcanic orange, the British racing green, & the blazing red.

Confused? You will be after the next episode of Soap!

Is it true that you only become a mod if you select VO colours?!!!

I went for Deep Blue after seeing some amazing pics of a Deep Blue in action, lovely look and the colour changes in different conditions. It's always a difficult decision - good luck!

Going back to the question from Sydney

Blue on one side

Moonwalk grey on the other

Easy peasy dilemma

Volcanic Orange of course smack bang in the middle

:D

And just think about it - orange amongst Sydney's backdrops...

I can see it now...

;)

I liked the Deep Blue from seeing the pictures on the website, but after seeing it at launch and visiting it again at rush cutters bay, I changed my mind, I think its too dark, I changed to Blazing Red, with White roof, mirrors, stripes and wheels.

White has now taken over from silver as the most popular colour in the UK, so I thought I'd follow the crowd. I think I started the trend in 2004 however :
