As mentioned before colour is a personal thing, and there is an element of what colour suits the size, shape and styling of the vehicle. Both colours in this instance go well. I had a white Sportage 3 before so went Gunmetal this time on my Qashqai for this reason to have a bit of a change. But had my previous car been a different colour then who knows.

We had the blade silver metallic for 3 years and loved the colour. Could only get black for the new one and we weren't too sure, but the offer and trade in was brilliant so we went ahead and now we love the colour.

I must admit that I have a soft spot for the Qash wearing grey paint but, I do think it looks good in Magnetic Red.

Well I did not think this post would be so active regarding color. This was the Wife’s choice after sitting on our Balcony in Florida watching the Color of SUV’s going by from above, hence she got her way as my preference at that time was the Vivid Blue - you can’t win them All Dave 😏

Mike, you have hit on a good point. When we were Spec’ing the QQ we wanted the “WIND” Alloys but were told that these were not available even if we paid for them. Then the Tekna + came along with Options and we choose the “WIND” as our preference, the other option was these which are also nice - Dave 😃

Dave, what is the chrome strip along the sill / door bottoms? Have you got a link to where you bought it. Thanks

Geordieman, unfortunately I think you will have to ask Nissan as these parts I believe only are installed on the Tekna + Model because if you look at the pic you will see that the normal Black Plastics Sides and those around the Wheel Arches have now been replaced with Color Matched Ones. The Tekna + has new Color Matched Parts with Chrome Trim. The N-Tec has Black Trim. Naturally you can get them from Nissan (Chrome or Black) but you will need to check do they fit - Dave 🤨

The N-Tec Black Ones :

These are the Larger / Original Black Plastic Parts I am referring to :
