What about that multi-coloured Polo they brought out - Polo Harlequin I think it was called!

wasn't it the "benneton"?[V]

LOL I saw a polo harlequin the other day outside work. I honestly thought someone had done that themselves! Did VW really offer that as an option - hideous multicolour panels that make it look like its been chopped together at the scrapyard!

Apricot is awful, Vauxhall also made the Corsa in this colour as well as a `Kermit` green!

One lovely one that springs to mind was a Scirocco colour, I think it was Havanna or Savanna brown! ... as seen on the Storm models!

Yes but imagine how much easier it is to fix after any bumps/scrapes! No problem with colour matching is there. Just stick any panel of any scrapper on it and who would ever know.

Wonder what colour the log book has it listed as though??

I remember those multi coloured Polo's!

I was about to buy an 'orange' (yeah right orange?) Polo few years ago. Wanted to use it for a project...respray.

MOving slightly off at a tangent, I painted two cars, one a golf mk2 gti in this "Porsche Karminrot".The other was a well featured ford fiesta back in the late 80's early 90's.

But did anyone see where the Karminrot golf ended up............(hint, on the telly!)

PS, Both cars looked amazing if I am honest, although when I opened the booth in the morning after painting the fiesta, I did think, OMG, I'm gunna have to be handy behind the wheel of this thing! [:D]LOL

I reckon they did do that green of the harlequin roof on an early to mid 90's polo too! May be wrong though, but am sure I have seen it about
