The problem with driving a brightly coloured car is that you don’t know why pedestrians are pointing at you.
Is it VW’s Sandstorm yellow paintjob – or is the Beetle Dune the coolest thing this side of a Mini? (or just a bit silly?)
It’s certainly, erm, eye-catching. Even on the inside, the dashboard is a colour fest of dials (mostly pointless) and yellow paint.
So to avoid motorparanoia, I’ve taken to mostly driving it in the dark. The headlights are very good. I suppose to some folk it might look rather fecthing even in daylight.
I just can’t get my head around jacking up a car by 10mm and adding some decals to make it look better.
And then there’s the price – this particular car is £31,225 with all the extras!! More on that tomorrow…
