I originally was going to opt for Blaze Red, but the dealer said there would be a very long wait time to get me one in the level 3, 5 door, Diesel version - So I asked about Midnight Black. Yep, we can get you that for the date you want. So Black it was. Absolutely love it
Yep, they said has I wanted the Petrol one in Red, it would have been quick. But the Red level 3's in 1.4 TD were all sold out across the country at the time. Said I would have to wait for the next production run, and that may have taken 10-12 weeks.
Yeah I know what you mean with hoping its dry. I can wash mine, and it looks stunning. Take it just a few miles out in the rain, or even on recently wet roads, and it gets all kinds of dirt splashes up the lower parts of the doors etc. Ends up looking like I've driven it through fields!
