Re: XR6 T - Narooma Blue

Jamie I think you are thinking of Galaxy Blue which was dropped after AUII. Narooma Blue was available for all of the AUIII Range and through to about August/September 03 for all of the BA range excluding the FPV range. It's my favourite blue of all time. My car is an AU1 Galaxy and sitting next to a BA in Narooma I could tell the Narooma was just a slightly bit deeper and richer blue. Very nice indeed.

Re: XR6 T - Narooma Blue

I'm a big fan of narooma too! (see avatar)

I was originally thinking that my choice of narooma was too boring, but the day i got it i was happy i decided with that instead of other colours that may age quicker.

I think if you plan on keeping a car for more than a few years a colour that is slightly less "out there" may be a better choice in terms of resale as the colour wont look as outdated. (think tiger micre on the vt's etc...)

Re: XR6 T - Narooma Blue

Yeah, Narooma Blue was available on the BA for a while, on the whole range I think. It is gone now. Blueprint also goes in May I think. Offshore is a new blue, lighter blue metallic, but not on XRs. Phantom also goes in May, as does Blood Orange and Mercury Silver. Acid Rush is gone too. Blood Orange is being replaced by Mandarin (metallic orange) in May, and also there is Envi (think Hothouse) in XRs and apparently a new black/purple called Vibe which might be available now, or soon anyway. Venom red has been gone for a bit, replaced with Vixen - lighter, brighter red. Most of you would know about Lightening Strike (new, light silver) that replaces Mercury Silver. Obviously there is also Citric Acid, Silhouette, white etc....

There is a thread somewhere else on this site about colours....

Mercury silver was not replaced by Lightning Strike, it is still available.

Really? Ok. Seems I was wrong on that one. I just heard that Mercury Silver was going in May, and that Lightening Strike was its (early) replacement. Oops. Sorry.

After the replies, I've obviously got it mixed up with Galaxy. I could have sworn it was Narooma!

It's my favourite blue as well. Though there was a blue on the E series that I really liked as well. I can't think of the name but it looked purple under the street lights.

When the RAV 4 came out I bought one in a very similar colour. I was very disappointed that Ford had discontinued it when the AU came out.

That's it!

I loved that colour, I'd would buy a Falcon in that colour in a heartbeat if it was released again.
