500 Sport - New Orleans Blue

My new baby. I know New Orleans Blue is a bit of a controversial colour, but I love it Picked it up a few weeks ago and haven't been able to tear myself away since.

Re: 500 Sport - New Orleans Blue

Thanks Part of the reason I got N.O. Blue was 'cause I hadn't seen anyone else with one yet. Nice to be a bit different

Re: 500 Sport - New Orleans Blue

Not many people seem to be complimentary about New Orleans Blue. Colours are a matter of taste, and although I never considered it, I think the 500 looks good in it.

Re: 500 Sport - New Orleans Blue

Just saw one of these in my local dealer, its a gorgeous colour, suits the lines of the car really well. Its dark enough to give effect but bright enough so you still get all the subtle lines of the car. Great choice.

No kidding, I've even had one person turn their nose up at the colour :\ But ho hum, I like it. It's fun driving past grange puntos in N.O. Blue... confuses them somewhat lol

Thanks for all the comments guys!

Re: 500 Sport - New Orleans Blue

Love it as a a colour. If it was available when I ordered my 500 I would have been seriously tempted away from black.

Sadly not! I'm afraid it's only the 1.2 I don't think I'd like the red brake calipers with blue paint, maybe yellow calipers...

Re: 500 Sport - New Orleans Blue

I've just ordered mine in Blue. didnt realise it was a controversal colour. I love it.
