Hi guys,

I'm a newbie, having ordered an RS for the first time. I've checked out the many questions about Nitrous Blue but does anyone, anywhere, know where there is a Nitrous Blue RS on, or likely to be on, display somewhere? I feel I have to order in this colour but I really need to see it in the flesh, like many others by the sound of it!

Yes there's many in the same boat myself included. There is only one in Nitrous in the country I believe.

Been informed by my dealer today that they will get there own demo in January as will many others so it shouldn't be a problem seeing Nitrous before it's too late.

I've seen the blue many times now, both stationary and on the move.
It's quite a 'blocky' colour and the design of the car doesn't allow it to be interrupted so it's not to my taste. Some additional black accents would lift it, even a side stripe would help. That said it would be my choice as it is quite unique. Only seen the black online and I liked that. The grey is trendy generally in cars at the mo, but I predict will age quickly and seem dated. Also so dull. So blue or black with white as my third choice. But I agree got to see them outdoors on a grey day before deciding!

I agree Richard....they grey is trendy, but looks good, i was looking at an ST yesterday in stealth (honestly what put me off was its also a 'unique' colour to the ST...but if i wanted an ST..)

Saw the black RS yesterday, looks great polished, photos dont do it justice. But then i remember how long English winters are!

White was always the RS colour. But that was more in the days when white was a rare colour on the road. Its been THE trendy colour for like 3 years now. In my road there are 25 houses....and over 50% of all cars in the road are white...including an ST. And two more STs in orange :)

Hence and the majority of buyers are going with the blue - its a one off colour (for now) so will be rare on the road even with a couple thousand built in the UK. Hoping its not too similar to the Volvo when i see it for real though

I know there are at least 3 NB in the UK.

You would need to trek down to Essex though and camp up by the A127 to watch for one going in or out of Dunton.
