Re: Elba blue.

I presume you mean "a Tipo" ... and not the "Elba Blue paint"?

What model are you after?

Re: Elba blue.

Elba Blue is okay to live with, but does show dirt and only looks really good in direct sunlight. I have a Tipo Lounge 1.6 Auto and the wheels look smart in contrast to the bodywork. Had car 11 months and no paint problems to report.

Re: Elba blue.

Thank you for the reply,I'm finding much the same,great when first cleaned and then the slightest bit of use or dust and it's looking filthy again !,but I think it's a good choice for the Tipo.
