I am ordering my 5dr 1.4 Diesel Allure tomorrow as soon as my credit check comes back. I am really stuck on what colour to choose.

I do like the red, but have been told that red cars are more on insurance?! My insurance quote at the moment was just for a silver car, and the premium is exactly the same for what I'm currently driving (Corsa). So will it change if I go for a red one?

The other two options that I liked was the Shark Grey and the Morello Black (I think its called) Although it looks more of like a dark chocolate colour....... Does anyone have a picture of the Morello Black in 5dr that I could have a look at to compare, as the colours never look the same as on the website.

The blue looks pretty awful I think, it has a bit of a purple tinge to it which I really don't like. I didnt' really want to go for black/white as the last car I had was white and the one before it was black. Want something colourful but they don't really offer much options.....!

Thanks for helping me decide :)

Mine is Rioja Red. Great colour but needs to be kept clean as it shows any dust or dirt.
My insurance for a new 208 1.2VTI Allure was less than my previous car, a 2 years old 207 1.4VTI

Shark grey all the way!!!! I have a 1.2 vti active with bronze mirror caps and it looks stunning! And the great thing is that it doesn't show dust or dirt up much (although I do clean mine every week anyway) but even when it comes to me cleaning it unless you look closely you can't really see the dirt or dust

Hi, definitely agree with the Shark Grey. I had one for a day when I tested the 208 and it certainly looked very impressive. I finally opted for Silver for my 1.2 Active since my previous car was also Silver (an Audi) and I find it doesn't show dirt/dust too badly and is easier for other drivers to see in low light conditions. Would have opted for white but that would definitely show the dirt and road dust.

Thanks guys I did go for the Shark Grey :D It will be here within 3-4 weeks (end of September) so I'll be getting a 63 plate! Can't wait. Looks like it will be a bloody good upgrade from my Corsa, inside and out!
