I wonder why manufacturers started naming colours after places. Is it really that yellow in Dakar? That blue in Estoril? That red in Imola?

For that market segment, CR-Vs kick azz.

I remember BMW also had a colour called "Manila", which was some cream-colour. I don't remember the actual city being cream, in fact it was more gray than anything:

I'm kinda inclined to just sort of drive around and keep the car without any serious work, just visual (and reversible) mods.
Yeah, there is something special about an original car and an original owner.
