2 more this morning, a Lexus SUV tank and a Skoda SUV thingy.

No PSA cars yet, or an electric. Odds on that will be a Leaf though!

Not 18 reg but got stuck in a bit of a traffic jam last night. Eventually I had to pull round a very new looking Audi A4 convertible abandoned in a very exposed position. I thought it wouldn't take much for one of the local loonies to rear end it.

Does it count if I drive past the forecourt of a car dealer?

You may expect that your first 18 reg spot would be one of the top 10. PSA/ Renault bubble under the top ten, and DS have had a poorer start to the year than 2017!

Still just the one for me.

PS Oops! forgot Vauxhall is a PSA "brand" now!

Some Audis...

French - a Renault thingy (no idea which one!) and a Dacia Duster*. No PSA yet....

* am considering one of these as cheap no frills economical 4WD if we are going to have a few winters with snow like we've had in the last few weeks as we go through the upcoming solar minimum!

First one I've seen today, looks like our neighbour has just got a new car in. Mazda 3 - in exactly the same colour of red as their old one, which confused me no end for a moment.

I spotted a grey Lamborghini today on the clockwise M25. It was similar in colour to the one in "The Dark Knight".

According to our friends at the SMMT Black is back as the UK's favourite car colour

Couple of greys on the last two spots, slightly baffled why anyone would go into a Lamborghini showroom and order a grey one!

Black is possibly one of the most impractical car colours ever.... I know from experience... They look lovely for about ten seconds when first cleaned and then they become dirt magnets...

Still no sign of a new trend for nice, bright lively colours then? Shame... This country badly needs a bit of colour in it and not dull greys and the like...
