I'm glad you have posted the picture of it in the flesh. It reminds me of my China Blue Vauxhall Cavalier from back in '85.

I cannot believe that some berk in design has ordered that Loire Blue and Galway Green are to be dropped from the MY18 Colour palette. Unbelievable!!

Enjoy the car..

I’m guessing that you’re referring to Aintree Green Badgerface but anyway you’re quite correct. My dealer has was livid when he heard that Aintree Green was no longer available and recently told me he’d had two potential customers walk away when they heard about it. No Aintree Green no DS was what they said.

Yes you're quite right Chippy - Galway was its predecessor. I think that it proves that Guru McGovern and his team are determined to chase new modern money and move away from Land Rover heritage completely, Poor show frankly...

I didn't know that Galway was previously a LR colour so at least I've learnt one thing today - thanks.

And you're right the heritage no longer seems to be of any importance to LR. There may still be a time when they come to regret the current strategy.
