Nah, blue is much nicer and red is sensational. .

Love the sticker story! Great idea to cop the advertising for a subsidy... why didn't I offer  to do that!

Have you had many comments from strangers? The blue probably stands out more than my red!

Saw an orange one in the flesh at Morley Hyundai yesterday.  Looks better in the flesh than in photos.  They had plenty of stock.

Loving it so far, I finally got to drive it for the trip. Jo lets me do the long distance runs.
Went to Sydney and back Fri-Sat for Disney on Ice presents Frozen. Bloody good show, especially from the Hyundai corporate box 🙂

The I30 handles the Sydney traffic with ease the 1.6T just goes and although I didn't get all that much stop start traffic the DCT was seamless.
Got about 620km from the first tank of 95 with 120km around Tamworth and Sydney traffic in that tank. I imagine 700km on the highway isn't far from reach once the engine wears in.

100% getting tint. Get a good deal cash but all my cash has been used in the last week moving. The Jeep had 28% film and boss lady has told me she wants darker lol.

So far no random comments but I haven't been driving it.
