At least the colour is standard on 1 Series of cars. So is easy to get hold of. Its not a special as the normal individual colours like Moonstone, Tanzanite Blue or Smoked Topaz. Now those would be a complete pig to repair, with their depth of colour and sparkle.

As for the colour, I like bright colours and none of the standard colours are bright. Yes the Estoril Blue is lovely, but its not bright enough for me and I feel it will become very common. Whereas Valencia Orange will always be scares. Not many people want to be Tangoed.
