Recently read in LRO that some colour schemes are no longer available.

I am told that is is due to the recent earthquake in Japan.

Not just equipment was lost, but the technology was also lost. So unfortunately many of the proposed colours may never be seen.

Firenze red was one of the colours that was affected. My dealer confirmed today that the issue has been sorted, and that my firenze red evoque will be built on Sept 26th.

Ah that's good - so do you know if they've just found another supplier or managed to fix whatever went wrong in Japan?
Is it just Firenze red that they can now supply or all the other OK too?

Cheers
