Collected my new Milano Red EX Navi CVT this morning. Sad to see the blue SE go after 22 months but the deal negotiated with Listers of Solihull made the choice very easy! Looking forward to some long journeys over the next few weeks but a bit worried about kerbing those lovely alloys.

When I had my alloys restored it was about 6 months before I got closer than 18" to a kerb. A nice car like that makes me very jealous. I wish you every success with it.

After weeks of thinking and changing my mind, I finally got my new Jazz
last Friday, its a Milano red EX manual, all the new gadgets and gizmos are a bit
daunting, but I will get the hang of them I guess, I got a very good deal
from my local dealer at Letchworth, so all I need now is for the rain to stop.

I don't think leaks are a common problem and they scrub up well when washed.

Wow, Nigel. That does look nice!

I'm trying to make up my mind, which colour I, (we) prefer. For next year's swap.....

The Navigator, thinks, orange. (This week).....  ::)

Tell your navigator to see one in dull weather, they look brown. They only approach orange when clean and in bright sunlight.

But the colour hides the dirt very well without looking dirty.

I think you need to go to Specsavers. Sunset Orange never looks brown (I have one). I have only washed it twice since taking ownership 18 months ago. It does look better when clean but even dirty it never looks anything other than orange. Dirt just removes the 'exciting edge' a bit and leaves it looking pleasantly orange.

Specsavers, is that where you got your orange tinted specs? :-)

Sunset orange is certainly nearer the brown (red) end of the orange spectrum than the yellow end. I think Honda just put a little splash of yellow in their big pot of Milano red to make sunset orange.

Navigator, has now seen a grubby, orange example. Not impressed!  ::)

Milano red, is the only option left. At the moment, she likes it......  :)

Colour was the only thing that put me off the Jazz I had on loan.

I love the metallic blue, of my Neighbour's SE. Herself, say's. "It's ok".....

Unfortunately, neither of us are impressed, with the lighter shade, of the Mk3......  :(

Over the years I have 4 Jazz cars, all Milano Red, because I think it is important to be seen on the road.
I find that dark colours and the silver/grey versions seem to blend in with the tarmac road surfaces, making them more difficult to see in bad weather.
I recall many years ago, the fire service was considering changing from red to yellow, so I had a bright yellow Austin Metro for a time. They never did change!!

Yellow is definitely a good colour to be seen. I had the yellow Volvo before getting the Jazz and my wife says she never had any problem seeing it in a car park. She struggles to find the blue Jazz. Don't tell her, but sometimes I have to look more than once for it. So many blue small hatchbacks out there.
I always have old cars (a matter of finance) and red cars tend to fade extremely badly. Always have done. Don't know if the newer paints will be any better but the pigments used in red paint tend not to hold their colour.

Vauxhalls and VWs seem to be the worst.
