I personally like it. Throw some 18" rims on this baby and it'll be sweet!
I wonder is this the same yellow that Volvo used on their "R" series. I've seen a couple that were very oxidized & faded... almost looked like flat yellow!
What do you think about Desert Wind? I saw it and hated it. my dealer told me that the only reason that Volvo used it on the S40 was because that they had to get rid of the overstock, from being such an unpopular color on older volvos.
Yes, the Audi S4 Imola yellow is pretty interesting. The Audi A4 Brilliant Yellow though is pretty bad.
Actually, I really like this one, but I can't figure out the name of the color. This is Blackberry Metallic right? I have never seen this one before at the dealer. The only other color that Volvo made that looked like this was Amethyst Metallic.
I've actually seen and driven an S40 in Panama yellow. My local dealer has two on the lot, since it was to be a special order colour I figure that someone ordered it the decided they didn't like it.
Personally I like the yellow on the wagon, saw one at the car show and it was okay. Under the way too bright lights the car was an eyesore, but in real life the colour wasn't too bad. I've given it some serious consideration for my car but I'll likely go with the bright red for my upcoming wagon.
Panama Yellow, in my opinion, looks decent. Doesn't sell much, though. The Desert Wind is just plain horrible, and sells even worse. Now, if Volvo replaced the Desert Wind with Ash Gold from the 60/70/80, it'd cater more to those who prefer neutral colours, which of course, the Desert Wind, is not.
