What colours look dull at times...

Post by Megals » Wed Apr 26, 2017 11:02 pm

We're hopefully placing an order September and have been perusing colour choices. We quite like the scotia grey but in cloudy skies seems to go dull.
There's not any colour really that makes us go wow, except I love the orange but better half :o ...and I wouldn't be brave enough.

So do your personal colours look at all dull in overcast skies?

Hi
Welcome to the forum, I like orange but wasnt brave enough either so I had scotia grey on my first DS it's a nice colour.
Sadly I had to reject that car so I rethought orange again ......but still wasn't brave enough ....so I went for Firenze red looks good in sun and cloud.

I think a black contrast roof always make it looks better! Orange with black roof is definetely the coolest color combo! I would have loved it! My como is also ok but maybe a bit conservative? The Firenze red or Loire blue is also very nice!

Go for a color if you can choose!

I'd go for the colour that's acceptable to both your better half and yourself and not worry too much about what it might look like when the skies are overcast. Unless you live somewhere where the sun never shines that is.

If you like orange then any colour with grey in the title will always look a bit dull! Went for Scotia Grey myself because every other DS was seemed to be Corris Grey, I like the way it changes colour in different light and am very pleased with it.
Also think the blacked out rear glass makes a big difference to how the car looks.

I had a Firenze Red with black roof Evoque, a lovely contrast, when I bought my DS after having the last two cars a version of red I decided for a change, so went for the Kaikoura Stone option as it was a bit different and liked the colour, my next one I would probably go for one of the greys, some of them are nice, or even go back to Firenze red, maybe with a black pack, decisions, decisions :)

This is a very interesting topic as I had the same dilemna when I was ordering my car. I liked a lot of the darker colours in the showroom but out on the road, especially when a bit dirty the car looked too dark for me.
I eventually went for white as I do like a lot of cars in white but we already have 3 white cars in the family!!

I did like the orange a lot but my wife said she would kill me if I ordered that colour.
