No it's the 500th anniversary since the PR3 route was chosen - just kidding

Nice pictures Chris, it doesn't look too bad in that colour....

Like the colour, like the front bumper re-style...

Not so keen on the shut line between the leading edge of the bonnet and bumper in the second picture....... I know it's only pre-production but given it's a 'show' car to demonstrate their up coming new model something like this should have been better!!.

I like the choice of the old F-style heater knobs, but would prefer white dials in the binnacle.

Is the gear knob just an alloy one painted black ?

Wow the flake in that pearlesent paint is really popping in the sill pic. The front bumper is definately a grower too. The dash is different and a touch too busy for me but may also be a grower. Nice pics.

I dont like the bumper and i don't like the boring interior

but i do like the black exterior fittings with that colour

and i also like the black console and vents etc, if someone said they were gonna say they were gonna paint theirs black i'd be thinking "NO WAY" but they look pretty cool actually, i don't like the heater controls either

maybe the interior should have had some orange in it i dunno....

there's lots i like but lots i really don't like

I think as this colour is such a bold statement it could do with a dash of orange inside- maybe the speedo needle or little bits of trim? Other than that I think it looks 'fresher'.

I'm glad the silly horizontal bar has gone from the grille- I always thought it should be deleted. As for the headlamps, could the surround not be chromed? I mean the black plastic moulding that the 3 lamps sit in- it would look ace with a little bt of 'bling' there. I guess on this car it would be black anyway gven that all chrome has been deleted, but I'm assuming the standard model will retain the polished finish on the brightwork.

Other than that I like it. It would be nice if the dials were octagonal after all, there's no Rover to share them with now is there?

Those badges look like they might not delaminate too- are they metal or just very good plastic ones?
