Hello from Didcot

Hi

As always when getting a new car I look for a forum for valuable information and this looks like the place

So I've just ordered my car with the following spec :

C-Max Titanium manual 1.6 Diesel with X pack (the wife wanted the panoramic roof) in Lunar Sky. Should get a call today, tomorrow hopefully with a date.

Any comments on the colour because I'm worried it might be a bit too brown for my taste, and no I didn't specify the colour someone else did

Cheers

Graham

Hello and Welcome Smoke02. At least it will be unique cause I don't see many Lunar sky colours around. Meanwhile get yourself on Youtube and take a look at some of the good reviews on there. I love the new shape C-max. Is this the one you are getting?, Shane.

Hi Shane

Yes I had a look on youtube at the videos, saved be from buying a Kuga (wife wanted one) which would have been too small and too expensive

It is the new shape, I nearly missed it as I was looking at different cars and then spotted the C-Max. Just waiting to hear now when it will be built

The Ford Kuga is a lovely looking car. I would jump if someone gave me that. Hope you don't have to wait too long for the C-max whilst the weather is lovely.

Happy days

Just spoken to the dealer and he has found me a car in Midnight Sky (not brown). The spec is slightly different, no privacy glass and 18" wheels instead of the 17".

I chuffed because the delivery was looking to be August and now I'll have the car in 7-10 days, and it's not brown. My wife moaned a bit about the colour change but I think I got away with it

And as for the privacy glass if I get too many complaints from the family the dealer said he will arrange to have it fitted for me.

That's great news. Hope the car works perfect when you get it. Take some pics of it and post them on here if you like. Oh and enjoy this beautiful hot summer we're having at the moment

Congrats on getting your car early.

Lunar Sky is a colour I can't quite make my mind up about. I've seen a Grand and a couple of 5 seaters around Stoke and I think the C-Max looks quite good in it but I always say It's not the colour for me.
