Devin, I believe the red in your first set of pictures was called Phoenician Red. Do you know how many MY2000 Laser Blue cars were brought into the US?

The dark red color that my V70R has is called "Venetian Red" (code 445). I remember hearing that only 50 cars came into the US with that color.

Ooops, right you are - sounds similar though. Phoenica = old, old Europe <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: The 2000 V70R was available in the US in the following colors. (Kaizai)

I didn't realize my Venetian Red was so rare. It had just arrived at the dealership the last week of November 1999. I did an autofinder search and was informed that only two R's were on sale in the country. The other was in Minneapolis. So, I figure I was one of the last people to buy an MY00 R in the USA. I really lucked out since I had just decided to get a new car and settled on the R at the end of its MY00 life.<p><IMG SRC="http://images16.fotki.com/v298/photos/7/7299/3481516/200604230127728Windfest-vi.jpg" BORDER="0"> <p>Oh, and you might be showing the black on a V70R, but I'm not sure if it is an MY00. The above is a picture of my R. I ordered it with the roof rails, which, for MY00, were a lot chunkier than in the previous years. Were there two options for roof rails?

<IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/gallery/albums//Events/Enthusiast/VCOA%20Nationals/2003%20Olympia/014.jpg" BORDER="0"> <p>That looks amazing! I would have loved my C70 in that color if it weren't for Saffron!<p>Don't mean to poke in your business JRL, but what did you need touch up Saffron paint for? working on a secret project? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">
