Full list of UK spec colours?

Here you can talk about the joy owning a Volvo 480 brings. Non-technical discussions take place here, like what is the difference between an ES and a S version.

Oooh, just looking at the lavender one. I’ve just realised, the older man who had one in my village (one I drooled over until I got my first in 2005!) must have been this colour. I remember when I got close to it (in the bowling alley car park :lol: ) it had that coloured shimmer; not black. Also, his was a P reg. Rare on both parts, I guess.

Sorry, irrelevant post! 😬

The clear lenses question seems to divide people - I think it depends what colour car they are on. Your blue, for example, looks great with the orange lenses, but on something like my Celeb I think they clash with the burgundy red. Celeb alloys I can take or leave - its my GT alloys (Vesa) I like!
Good job we all like different things eh? I can't stand the Vesa alloys! :shock:

you you have any idea if K935 YRW is around still?
Last MOT was 2008 :cryhard:
I rather suspect she is long gone, sadly. Still, in the bright side Jeff, at least I don't have to worry about you nicking my wheels when we get our meets back up and running!! ;)
