Firenze red for us with a body coloured roof! - although there is one of those limited editions down the road - Black with the Lime Green Metallic roof - really not sure if i like it or not - definitely a marmite choice!
Yes unfortunately there seems to be a little photo trickery on the website to enhance the vibrancy of the colours and show highlights etc. Understandable as they want the colours to be shown in the best light - they need to sell the cars to us after all.
But the colours do all look good in the flesh too - just not quite as good.
As mentioned earlier in the thread, metallic paint features tiny flakes of metal (hence metallic) which glint in the sun and give the car a deeper, more distinctive shine. Our Firenze looks fairly flat on a dull day but on a sunny day the colour really comes alive.
I think the original post by CBW was aimed at prompting forum members to post close up photos of the flakes but the thread seems to have drifted somewhat.
I can see your point but I had seen the colour before buying so knew what I was getting.... and I personally love it.... even though it's out there filthy it still manages to look striking with mud plastered all over it....
In my opinion, Firenze is the best colour, we saw it in the showroom and me, the Wife and kids loved it so that was that.. However, I'd love to have Pheonix Orange but no way will Mrs. Vader go for that next time, so, I'm thinking Indus Silver with the cappuccino interior for our next Evoque, what do you think?
