Talking Colour Therapist.. ;)

What does that New Age Cream colour look like? And what aboot that Orangey orange whose name I can't remember?

Does anyone have photos of a real car.. so I can have a look?

I managed to otherwise spec' the perfect 500 ... apart from another fifty or so SISI's (Shall I, Shan't I)... but I'm getting there...


Also... why is the wheels on a Pop twice the price of the same wheels on a Colour Magic?

And does the Therapy have white mirrors? The configurator shows kind of light grey.. The spec' says "white rear view mirror". Is that the door mirrors or is the rear view mirror also white? Grooovy!

Re: Colour Therapist.. ;)

I think the colours are still so new it might be a few weeks until there are photos of a real life car in those colours... If you can find out the italian names for the colours you might have some luck on google...?

Re: Colour Therapist.. ;)

New Age Cream is sold as Cappuccino beige (231) in our country. The same name is most likely used in other EU markets too. I saw it under the same name on Fiat's italian website. It looks like it is sold in USA as Mocha Latte. Try a search for this colour, you can find many photos. Nice retro looking colour, I like it.

Mocha Latte looks a lot different to New Age Cream.
If you use this colour simulator you can see it's too 'brown'.

I had a Beige Citroen GS Club that I bought as a 'stop gap' because no one wanted the colour.

If the OP is happy with Red (since he mentioned that previously) the Colour Therapy option might be a runner. Otherwise IMHO I would opt for a proper off white like the BNW.

Re: Colour Therapist.. ;)

Guys if you could be bothered go to Mini.Uk's car configurator and click on the Mini Cooper S and check out the color ice blue. It looks like a really interesting color, i saw it on the road and i thought it was grey but it isnt. Really interesting color.

it is like a fusion of new cream with something else!

Try a search for some real photos of this colour and you will see, that it is actually not as brown as it looks in that simulator. Maby I am wrong and it is not the same colour. If not, it is very close.

First one is described as beige and the second as Mocha Latte which came from this USA site.

I quite like them - in a perverse sort of way.

No, no brown interior. Ever. The light Lounge seats with ivory ambience would be ok I think....

Re: Colour Therapist.. ;)

they will look even more horrid when dirty,
what are them ugly reflectors on the sides or rear bumper, is it some thing that you have to have in the US or will all 500's be getting them?

I think the reflectors are a US spec thing that all cars have there (including the current US model 500).

The second colour is called Espresso, the first one is Mocha Latte. Try a search for some real photos of both again, or check Fiat USA configurator.
