Welcome !

I really like the sound of bronze. I always fancied an Audi in what they call Ipanema Brown. If I were to have the XE 'wrapped' if would be in this colour...

Edit : have just googled XE bronze. It isn't like the above but is really lovely. Like a warm grey. Very unusual and very nice indeed !!
Some pictures attached! I wasn't sure on the colour but the weeks leading up to me actually enquiring about it i fell in love :D :D

Agreed and I think you've made a very good choice. Enjoy!

When I purchased my first XE the garage lent me one over night in this colour, it was really unusual but it definitely grew on me, enjoy your new car :)

I'm very fond of Quartzite, I think it's an amazing colour!

Currently running a courtesy / loaner XE in white - several colleagues have come up to congratulate on my "posh" upgrade! They reckon the white looks better than my Corris Grey, but I'm not convinced... The wife also prefers the white! :oops:

Nah Corris Grey is definitely the colour, but I am biased though. :D :lol: :lol:

Corris Grey, all the way!

But if I had a different colour, that'd be the one :)
