    It does appear that way. I'd not even heard of that colour in 2 and a half years until this morning

    HAHA i'll be watching in my mirrors!

    Gould i got mine from luton but funnily enough the owner before me appears to be from maidenhead, i'm trying to trace through the service history to see when the haldex service was done as i cant seem to find it anywhere. know any local places to go for this?

    and by the way on the original sales invoice for my car it says azure blue pearl, but the colour code says santorin blue, i imagine its the same thing.
