Of the three colours you have placed before us....
Ammonite looks best, especially with the smaller wheels you have on the configurator image.
Black is not great IMHO. A nightmare to keep clean. 24hrs after washing it you will be looking down the line of the huge bonnet and see a film of dust rather than the paint. And finally, it will show every swirl from washing abrasion after a while.
White - the wheels are too small which is emphasised by white because of the colour contrast between tyre wall and the gaps in the wheelarch.
I'm going for the standard R-sport wheels which for me work great with the ammonite. I also think the website doesnt do Ammonite justice - it looks much better in the flesh then the pics on the configurator show.
I am not a white car person at all but, after a process of elimination, settled on Glacier White and, now that I have it in the flesh, I frickin love it - it seems to change shades very subtly with the differences in the ambient light and always (to me) looks stunning. It has also had so many compliments (more than I have ever known before). Even today, a grizzly ol' day, it still seems to look great which I'm not sure the dark colours do (subjective, I know). Hope it helps with the big decision!
When first saw the cx17 I wanted the blue and when I found out it was only going to be on the first edition I had to have it, if it was going to be a colour of choice it would not have been 100 percent the first edition spec.
If I was to choose a second colour hands down it would be the white on black, just makes the Fpace look stunning.
First edition blue is a wicked colour!!! That's my favourite!! But I couldn't justify the cost for the lack of spec! So I ordered mine FULLY loaded. I know options drop like a stone but I will use them, so I will appreciate their value whilst using them!!
