Me: I don't understand why everybody wants gray cars.
Also me:

Of course, there is a story behind this picture.
In short: I have ordered a car. Delivery in 8 months. After 1 month I call the dealership and they asked me what was the quoted price for the car? :))) In the picture, another dealership, another brand.

So this is my new car. "Dark Teal" as they label it. I bought it from "stock" so I did not pick the color, but it is quite nice. It's now on temporary plates until I get all the papers done. It was not really on stock, I had to wait about 3 weeks, but it's better then having to wait a year.

It's a 2022 Hyundai i30 Hatchback, "Highway" trim level, it has a 1.5 T-GDI (turbo petrol) 160cp, with a manual transmission. It has a independent rear suspension and Michelin Primacy 4 S2 tires.

And no, there were no red cars :)

The sunshine had the cars gleaming today.

A nice row of reds 3 Leafs and a Honda Civic.

I prefer the darker red cars. The Leaf on the far right of the photo the best of the bunch.

The image doesn't do it justice, but a very radiant shiny red paint job on this Peugeot 208 I parked next to, nicely offset by the black wheels, quite striking.

I like this, the camera doesn't do justice to the colour, bit less washed out more bluey in real life.

A decent enough package which caught my eye, proper double doors at the back and large hole pepperpot-esque wheels.
