Seen a few for sale but non in the road yet either. I haven't seen a huge number of DS4 on the road, seem to see a lot more Nissan Jukes, although they might just be a bit more distinctive and this more easily 'seen', will have to look at sales numbers for both to see if it's real or not!

I went for the dstyle nav as i got a deal on my ds3 that i could not refuse very happy so far! i went for all polar white. i contanplated get a contrast pack with black roof etc but i think all polar white with the exsiting black on the car looks the nuts!

Be very careful washing it, my friend who is a professional detailer said the paint on these is extremely soft and easily scratched. I'm having ours coated with GTechniq Crystal Serum soon which puts a layer on the surface which is tougher than the current lacquer and last for 7 years.

Yes the paint is softish, but not in the same league as Honda/Japanese paint
Applying GTechniq Serum is an answer, but out of the equation for most people...An average price to apply not including all the prep work would be at least £250..so possibly £400+ on a DS4 sized car from start to finish (It must be applied by an approved Pro)
A good Ceramic sealant like GTechniq C1 or Carbon Collective Platinum can easily be applied by anyone with some basic detailing knowledge and will last for more than two years if applied to a cleansed paint surface
I can offer this service if anyone is interested, but not Serum..LOL
Just eMail me and book it in

I find it's the pearlescent paint which is soft and easily marked. I have the Babylon Red and after 9 months began to notice a few scuffs and cleaning marks. I'm more careful now, but previous ordinary citroen metallic paint seemed more hard wearing.
It still looks great when cleaned, so I can put up with it.
