Ironically, I'd have preferred to have paid less and just had Ice White rather than having to cough up for Crystal White.

Not much of a choice when you opt for R-Design. You used to be able to get a solid red on the S90 that I always thought suited the R-Design look.

What I definitely would have paid extra for was a greater choice of interior colours. Loved the idea of the Lava Orange, and if a slightly less in-your-face version was offered I'd have definitely taken it.

I recall the attached back in the 90s - The 850 T-5R. That was a very suitable colour for the style, and reminded me fondly of a Mark III Cortina GT I had back in the early 70s which came in "Daytona Yellow". Tempus Fugit!

It was an XC40 FE D4 AWD Auto - Bursting Blue/Charcoal/20". On the road since March 9th. Sold on August 20th. It was Polestarred. :)
