I have been struggling with colour choices on the RD. My go-to is black, and I absolutely love it in black with the equivalent Mercedes 'night pack', but my current car is black and I've said for 3 years that I fancied a change, so have ended up with.....black!! I'm not a red or white person, I was very close to choosing blue but the shade isn't right for me. Silver seemed neither here or there (too white rather than a deeper silver) and the grey was a little too green-tinged in my eyes.

I would have liked to have seen a deeper blue, almost like the Ford RS blue, but my absolute ultimate would have been navy. The other half has his X6 in Carbon Black, and a neighbour has his Merc GLE Coupe in navy. Serious colour envy!! However, I know I will love my black Vader (she says, with 4 weeks to change mind, eek!)

Ps in photos I adore the blue and white!
Did you go for metallic or solid? I'm very close to finally getting my black stone inscription and desperately wish that I won't regret it.
I went for metallic, Onxy Black, but the very first model I saw was Black Stone, and that's the one that made me fall for it! I would have chosen it but metallic was included in the price on my lease, so made sense to utilise it. I'm sure you'll love it πŸ˜€ How far off is it?
Good to hear that! It's actually already arrived but since I'm currently on vacation out of town, I'll have to wait two more weeks to pick it up!

The colours are SO boring ! Amazon blue would have been amazing for the R design with the black roof. The Range Rover Evoque has some seriously sexy colours which would look good in the R Design

I wasn't going to pay extra for a different colour as a matter of principle, so the choice was between Amazon Blue and something else (maybe Charcoal). I went for the blue option, and I've actually been quite pleased with it. A lot of people have commented that it's a nice colour. I'm just struggling to understand how such a light blue bears any resemblance to the Amazon!

Amazon blue has nothing to do with the river.
It’s a retro colour that was originally available on the Volvo Amazon. Hence the name.
