    We buy any car dot com don't like yellow. They seem to value yellow beaches at ~£8000 less than some other colours.

    Blackberry is a nightmare to live with, possibly worse than black

    You don't get rust with California's, but roof corrosion comes as standard.

    Watching the Marco Polo Facebook page, they seem to have a poorer choice of colours than us. Dark brown metallic seems to be the most popular MP colour.

    It's a great colour - just don't buy one if your intention is to sell it to WBAC after a year or two.

    I would have loved to have had a yellow Ocean (or orange or lime green or Granny Jen's tartan). The VW colour choices are so dull. Like others went for candy white as it can be wrapped if funds allow in future

    Frankly, I don't think any of the current colours are that interesting. The few they do offer are all pretty dull! The California is supposed to be a fun leisure vehicle. Still at least they have made an effort with the two colour thing although they could be a little more adventurous there as well. IMO VW - Could do better.

    If I were buying again at the moment I would probably end up choosing plain old cooking white based purely on practicality and nothing else. I've owned several VAG group cars in Candy white and they seemed to stay cleaner for longer. I wouldn't have another black car, ever, and would avoid the darker colours for the same reason. It never looked clean for more than a nano second and showed up every mark. It always amazes me why so many people go for the drug dealer look with black everything including the windows when they always look filthy.
