Actually the Nogaro blue, whilst 'unusual' is very popular.Was there a dramatic lower resale value to the cars because of colour?
I agree with you Jambo. When you get to the point of selling you have probably fallen out of love with the car, so an "unusual" colour choice affecting resale will definitely make parting from the car a more unpleasant experience.
I have gone for Silver as although it may be boring, I think it never looks bad, doesn't look dirty all the time (Black & White are guilty here), and I think it kind of suits the R8. However each to their own, my daughter thinks I should have gone for Daytona.
