Hello.

Colour is a very personal choice, but having had both White Pearl and Gun Metallic for 3 years each, Gun Metallic in my opinion is the clear winner as it looks clean even when it needs a wash. Would have gone for it again but someone who doesn’t do the washing wanted a change!

Both!! But realistically the gun metal colour won't look as dirty as the white so quick but both are great colours, my previous 2 cars were gun metal and look great but wanted a change of colour so choose the red. But the white also has appeal though

Gun Metal Grey might be my favourite colour. (I had a 1963 Beetle in a similar colour 45 years ago and more recently a Juke).

However, I test drove a 1.3 automatic last week - in vivid blue.
I'm not a fan of blue cars but that's a genuinely great colour on the QQ.

Incidentally, the engine/gearbox combination was brilliant.

If you have a panoramic roof, then black is the best colour - since the roof then blends in so well. In fact people are really surprised when they get in and find the glass roof!

Ah, see it’s all personal!

I think white or vivid blue with the sunroof is excellent contrast.

Personally I would never get a black car, shows up every scratch, swirl. In fact I try and avoid dark colours altogether.

Last year's most popular new car colour was grey in what is being described as a perfect reflection of a relatively glum 2020 for everyone, including the UK motor sector - Dave 👍

It was 400,000 shades of grey for car buyers in 2020, data shows : https://mol.im/a/9148151
