    Glacier White, took me a long time to choose it and I was not sure I'd made the right choice at first. However after 3 months I am LOVING it :)

    I heard that too, and all future deliverys will be replaced with the closest which is either Dakota/monsoon grey, how lucky or they! :yum:

    Haha - the biggest surprise so far is that I thought Misano Red would have been more popular. I think it is a cracking colour. I was shot down by the missus so red was not allowed nor a dark colour. She actually thought Daytona was too dark. I said she should have gone to specsavers!!!

    Haha Steve, and your misses is still talking to you? Lol. I always thought that Black or white would have been the most popular, both we're on the table, but scuba blue it was.

    Afraid so Mark. She is still talking to me. I am sure this will change when the baby is born at the beginning of September.

    I think alot of the colours work well - quite keen to see some photos of the car in Beluga Brown. Quite intrigued at how this looks, does it come across more golden in colour.

    Very happy with my colour choice looking at those results, right in the good spot I think :D Not common enough to become boring, but still not unpopular

    Guilty as charged! I have registered my colour, but still awaiting delivery.

    Interesting to see no exclusive colours. Is that because the standard/metallic colours are so appealing or that people decide to spend their money on the vast array of options?

    I was tempted to spend the extra on the metallic line green but think it was just too much really!

    saw a brand new metallic lime green Astra the other day.....I was nearly sick.


    this is a really great poll, would be great to see it in a matrix of colour v spec (SE, sport, s line).

    Daytona seems common as muck and surprised by the large number of blacks and also reasonably surprised at the relatively low total for standard colours.....wonder if all the forum data is skewed by "enthusiasts" wanting their car to be a bit different from the large number of company car/lease car folk, no offence intended

    Yep! Mine is a company car.
    I'm lucky that I have a good choice of cars and options, all of which contribute to the monthly payment I make for the car!

    that was my point around company cars, some people just don't get the range of options they would like, looks like you have a good company scheme.

    Scuba blue pics on this forum, and seen lots more Amalfi!!! Mmmmmm,how does that work?

    Shiraz red and have been very pleased with the color.

    Who ever has Dakota Grey, please post a pic. That's the first color I was thinking about getting. Also would be nice to see Beluga brown.
