M6 Southbound

M6 North of Carlisle - First Evoque I have seen in Phoenix Orange - a 16 plate HSE Lux Dynamic Evoque with a Black Contrast roof. Looks a huge amount better in the flesh than it does on the configurator, and the colour also suits Evoque better than it does Discovery Sport. I would certainly consider speccing it if I were buying an Evoque now. IIRC it is a metallic paint but it does look more like a solid when one overtakes you on the motorway.

RE: M6 Southbound

Having been the owner of a Zanzibar Evoque for a year I've learned the lesson of buying unusual colours and depreciation.............. But having said that the dealer that bought it from me sold it within days of me handing it over and then sold the same car again within 6 months as the 2nd owner chopped it in for a new FFRR! Possible because to go with the metallic bronze exterior it had an interior to die for in Tan and ebony..........

RE: M6 Southbound

Yes I had the full Plus Pack and extended leather, to me there was too much Ebony but it was till one of the best interior colour schemes I have had in a Land Rover product.

See what I mean by too much Ebony? I could have had the parchment/Ivory headliner but thought that it would add another colour and make it one colour too many!

RE: M6 Southbound

Looks realy nice, and compleatly agree adding another colour on the headliner would of looked to much .... This colour combo looks classy

RE: M6 Southbound

Saw another Phoenix Orange RRE on the A30 this afternoon as I headed further south and west. I've seen several DiscoSports in the colour and thought that it really doesn't look that great on DS.

RE: M6 Southbound

I'm not to keen on the DS, drove up a side street today and there was a black DS on one side of the road parked up and opposite was the new black Ford Kuga .... They looked like Twins from the back at first glance
I'm still convinced they should of badged the DS as a freelander 3 ???
And kept to the original shape but slightly updated for the new Discovery
