Apparently I got the last one. It’s an R-Line 1.5l 7 Speed Automatic.
I asked for extra’s… keyless entry, reverse camera, etc….
What timing, I must say.

I just saw pics of your car on another topic. Its an absolute stunner. Congrats and enjoy this beauty.

Unfortunately VW confirms that T-Roc is no longer produced in Atlantic Blue, as well as in Black Oak and Energetic Orange, as you may know, 3 new colors will appear, Kings Red, Ascoat Gray and Pyrite Grey.

Oooh, interesting. I’ve never been 100% happy with how much green there is in Indium and would quite like to get it re-sprayed at some point with a more blue-grey. Wonder if these greys are closer to what I want.

Not 100% happy unless you have 50 shades of grey :lol: :lol: :lol:

Are you wearing tinted glasses ? :ugeek:

I've never seen any hint of green in my Indium Grey - it's just what it says on the tin ... Grey !

You must have more money than sense to consider a respray.

:lol: In fairness, it’s my job to be a color-accuracy perfectionist so I tend to see things in colors that most people don’t.

Under showroom lights, Indium is absolutely stunning but I find that out in the real world, the daylight makes it look a bit too green. Partly depends on the surroundings but my friend has a BMW in a nearly identical color and I prefer the blue hue it gives off.

I wouldn’t get a re-spray yet, I’ve only had it a year. But once the paint begins to go I might.

A mix of Ravenna blue and Indium grey would likely be absolutely perfect for me!

Interesting you saying that, my 2015 mk1 tiguan was nimbus grey, as was my misses 2016 polo. However, when you looked at them side by side there was a subtle difference, the polo having a fractionally blue tinge to it. I put it down to the tig manufactured in germany, and the polo in south africa.
