Has anyone had a Yellow car before??

Does the colour fade like the red used to go pinkish if you get my drift lol

Had a look at this the other day, looks great with a better spec than my blue one.

It's a 170 dsg mine is a 140 dsg...

Just want some opinions before i make my mind up..

Looks good but I'd be thinking how difficult itmight be to sell on should the need arise.
I never sell my cars private, always go to dealers for trade in price.

Change my cars quite often anyway but in two minds about this one, dont really like to go with the black, silver..

Unusual colour but could i live with it lol

Yummm.... Egg Custard [:D]
See this is what i mean, if i do buy i will have this every time there is a north west meet[:S][:D]

You can go off people yeah no [:D]
I know, and Jeremy Clarkson got one to the face as well [:p]

If the deals good on paper them go for it. Just ask yourself though, how many bright yellow cars do you see on the roads this time of year? Not many, which is probably why they're giving you a good deal [:p]

I had a yellow Mk2 MG ZR, I liked the colour. I had from new and sold it to get my golf a year on after to buying it sadly MG Rover went t**s up so the resale value went down a lot and being yellow didn't help, but to be honest I can't see Audi going bust in the near future so no worries there! As for the colour... it didn't fade, but in the summer months it was a very hard car to keep clean due to bugs and dirt stuck to the front of it, through winter it was just as bad but with out the bugs stuck to it. One more thing which has been said by one member, if you come to sell it at a later date you may struggle a little with it because of the colour, but if you like the colour go for it, I liked my yellow car.. but be prepared to get some stick of your mates for driving a yellow motor... didn't bother me that the car was yellow because I wanted a yellow car and it won't bother you neither but, you will just get tired of the comments mate. All points aside that is a very nice motor... So GO FOR IT! [:)]<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" /><o:p></o:p>

Happy yellow car motoring!<o:p></o:p>

I think it's a stunning car and would go for it if I were you!

There won't be many of them around and so will be rare, like you there will be someone who will like it when you come to sell!
