Hi. :)

I was just wondering if any of you who have received your cars have any regrets about the color choice?

I'm about to go 'sunset copper' but I'm a little afraid that I will regret it... it's possible that I'm just feeling this way because I've seen too many pictures of it in that color, but who knows :)

I would love to hear which color you chose and how you feel about it after living with it for a bit :D

Same here...

We just ordered allure with artense colour. But have second thoughts the whole week. Should i change it to black or pearl. But there are too many pearl white cars out there. Black hides black elements.

I have seen one in artense today and it looked good even with no allure and LED, no roof bars (which we ordered). My old car is red, so copper and red are out. Amazonit too green.

I wanted platinum, but that colour is on GT line and up. So there was only artense and black.

Now i'm wondering why i didn't take GT line, which was "only" 700EUR more expensive.
So i understand your thoughts.

I went for the pearlescent white with diamond black roof. At the time of ordering I was unsure what the pearl white would look like- it looks way too 'cream' the way it's represented in the brochure. Any how got the car on Thursday and a really big plus has been the colour combo I chose.....it's stunning. The pearl white has real depth to it and has a subtle glitter in the sun, and the black roof glitters a little too. Over the moon!

Yeah, It's kinda hard choosing, especially when it's a car we wanna keep for a good while... I'm thinking about getting the amazonite (just to have something funky, yet neutral) but the wifey really likes the Sunset copper so yeah.... :p

- I bet your car will look very nice in the artense ^^it's a nice color! :)))

I really love the 'storm trooper' edition you got there... it's a combo I could go for myself, but I just have had white cars the past 5-7 years, so I kinda wanna do something else :D

Storm trooper haha I like it! Never had a white car myself so fancied one and it really suits the car. Having said that I reckon white will have had its day in a few years though as there's so many....

White is great, especially with contrasts like a black roof ... and also fairly easy to keep looking clean (unlike black) :p

Well I've got the Sunset Copper and absolutely love it. It's slightly darker than in the adverts but in the sunshine it's fabulous and it gets a lot of very favourable comments.

Yeah, it do look nice in the real world - it was the first one I saw, but I have actually only seen it in showrooms (not in natural light) - so maybe that's something I should do :p

And your car is absolutely lovely! :D

I went for the red, one of the nicest red`s i have seen with an awesome shine in the light with the high gloss coat and a rich deep color due to the gold fleck. I think it really sets it off with the black, but hey that`s just my opinion.

If you wont have a panoramatic roof than I would definitely advice to order black diamond roof. :thumb:

If I get the allure version (still in debate if the GT is a better value for me) - then I'll get the black roof/mirrors !! :D

Btw... do you have the standard trim on your seats? ... how is the allure "standard" fabric - do you maybe have a picture ? :p

When I first contacted my dealer I wanted the red. But after seeing one in real life, I thought the colour was not deep enough. Too blend for my taste compared to the Candy Red Focus I have today. Also a retired old guy bought the red car at the dealer, so it turned me off to have a red SUV. After that, I noticed that all red SUV's around me was owned by old people. So I changed my order to Platinum Grey. No regrets.

Like others have commented, I found the Sunset Copper much darker in real life.. and as bassetlady says, it does have a lovely sparkle on a sunny day.

I find it quite a dignified colour, without being over the top.. so no regrets from me.

I was parked next to an Amazonite Grey 3008 the other day (which was my second preference) and thought to myself I definitely made the right choice :)

And what's wrong with old people? If you are after a colour that no old people own then I suggest you forget a SUV as they are preferred by older people because they're easier to get in and out of. In fact you could possibly find that old people prefer to avoid brighter colours and go for something like Platinum Grey :)

I actually really like the interior of my Allure, it looks very smart and the faux leather on it can easily be passed off as leather. In fact someone asked me if it was real leather the other day and before I answered they said how classy it looked

I will go out and photo my seats for you if you can give me a few minutes to get dressed! (Well I am on holiday:lol:)

:lol: Nothing. I just don't want to look like my father at my age :p He drives a red X-trail.

Might be true in England, but in Norway the compact SUV's are taking over as family cars for the younger generations.
