LN6V Jade Green for me. Was an optional extra when the owner bought the car. Why not spend the extra money on buying a GTX? :dunno:

LK5Y Cosmos blue. I don't think this is the rarest colour as it was used on non-Storm Sciroccos as well. As for havanna, I would guess that's the rarest.

Added some counters :hugegrin:

I know Havanna brown on paper is probably the rarest but in the last year I must have seen at least 5 pop up on the web (including 1 x non-storm on pistonheads if I recall correctly).

I'm curious as to what the rarest colour left is .. there are some of that list Ive never seen like:

Graphite Metallic - LB7V
Bronze Grey Metallic - LA8Y
Aero Blue Metallic - LY5R
Pewter Grey Metallic - LA7Y
Capri Blue - LK5E

Just as examples...

sorry Rich, mine's LA5Y too, and it's the second I've had that colour... Reasonably common on scalas with the colour-coded kit, less so on black-kitted GTs and GTXs.
