Right what do we think? Just been to my local dealer where I've got the RS 133 on order as the Captur launch was on (curiosity and free foodLOL) anyway they have an RS200 there in LY it looks stunning, the guy who I ordered the RS133 through said I've got 5 days left before I can't change my order!!

Really tempted to go for LY with black alloys instead of the silver with anthracite alloys!

What do we thinkConfused

No thought necessary - it's got to be yellow.

I agree. Yellow, particularly on a Twingo for rarity and from the photos it looks to really show off the car whereas silver is more discreet.

This. The yellow looks great, if a bit pricey. I personally would as I bet most wouldn't Wink

It's never even figured before until I saw the Clio in it today, it looked amazing with black alloys, the tinted windows etc

I've just tried it on the configurator but the pictures don't do it justice, I really want to go for it but I'm wondering what it would be like to live with and maintain, any ideas?

Does it cost that much more because its a better quality paint??

Thanks guysApprove

You're paying for the exclusivity and additional cost of paint and paint process.

Search liquid yellow Twingo in images on google and get your cheque book out.

I have been doing but I haven't seen a photo that does it justice, I've obviously seen LY RS models in the past but this Clio looked better than anything I'd seen, is that 'cos its new? Does LY fade with it being such a vibrant colour?

Was it inside the dealers? The lights might've helped

Love LY, would like my next car in it. Only thing that puts me off slightly is the fact it's not exactly stealthy if you're moving quickly.LOL

It gets dirty quite quickly but no worse than anything else.

Personally i use swissvax best of show but i wouldn't say you need to use it. I simply give the cars a jet wash (kartcher not petrol station) every few days and a quick wash to keep it clean and a daily jet wash in winter due to where i live and farm vehicles.

I really do like mercury i might add but i actually think it would be harder to maintain as imo silvers usually are.

It is a lot of money but its well worth it, no other yellow even gets close to it.
