My last car was a Peugeot RCZ in flat white with a high gloss black roof, a stunning combination, it did look like glass due to its high gloss finish.
On the V40 it is a tinted, almost black glass roof which has an electric blind inside so you have the option of more light inside the cabin or leave it closed up .
Ice White is a bright flat white, great against black trim and the glass tinted roof.
I do like metallic on certain colours, Renault do a stunning metallic Flame Red, but I dont like pearlescant white on ANY car, I think it looks a bit creamy, I like my white bright and clean !
I was actually offered a free upgrade to pearlescant white on the RCZ by the dealer, but opted for the standard flat white as it was a brighter white.
Everyone will like a certain colour better than others , it really is down to personal choice.
You can put the glass roof on any colour you fancy, and it does look very good against the Rebel Blue, but for me it was the Ice White combination that did it.
I haven't collected my car yet from the dealer, I have been to see it, and it really is a good looking car, especially with the rear styling pack option, but I'm waiting for the new 2016 plate come out on March 1st for collection.
My lad wants me to "go get it now", because he's a named driver on the insurance, even though he has his own very nice white Alfa Giulietta Clover Leaf, which by coincidence he's thinking of having the roof wrapped in gloss black.
Bloody copy cat. LOL.
Theres something about white good looking cars in this family .
