Kite Blue has only just been introduced into the UK as a standard colour, previously I could only find it on the Bayswater mini. For some reason, digital photos of Kite Blue (especially when taken with flash or in artificial lighting) don't do the colour justice. But I think the above images (particularly the first 3 or 4) are pretty true to life.
We thought about getting a convertible, but my fears were: 1) what happens if the roof doesn't go back up? 2) what happens if someone slices the roof when unattended? (jealousy etc) 3) what happens if it starts leaking or the material starts to fade? There were to many 'what ifs', so we went the double sunroof choice... Still could have probs, but there were less 'what ifs'... So in a sense I'm kinda jelly (jealous) with your baby... But I'm SOOO in LOVE with my baby... So it all works out in the wash (so to speak)...
Hi Pescha, there is a method for manually closing the roof if the electrics fail, but security and leaks are a concern. The thing is though, this is the first car I’ve ever bought based on "emotion" rather than "logic".
