Mine is Imola Yellow !!!!!!!!
The down side is you can't go anywhere without been spotted, could never have an affair, would get caught.
Next car is going to be silver !!!!

Mines nogaro blue, same issue, everyone sees and remembers you (especially if you are the only Noggy S3 in town). Bit of a pain though, I've had people say that they've seen me doing silly stuff in places that I haven't been. They're getting my S3 confused with a few of those semi-noggy blue A3's that are around (they don't have pearlescent (sp?) paint).

However I'd never get a Silver car.. yuk.. anonymous. Just try to keep your fingers out of other women's knickers instead.

Cheers, Ed.

there was a road  safety test done on car visibility in all light conditions and silver is the most visible colour.

weird, i've been missing a few posts again, just checked the "most recent posts on the forum" and there they are.

anyway, scotland = fog. NZ = not so much, just the odd low flying cloud. ;)
and we get their whisky, they can keep their weather.
