British Racing Green....Hideous?!

So, being a Jag traditionalist, I couldn't think of a better colour to order my F-Pace in than British Racing Green. It looks stunning on the F-type, so I have been really looking forward to what it will look like on the F-Pace. And then I saw this hideous photo....

Now I am having serious, SERIOUS, second thoughts if this is really what it looks like. I am really hoping this pic is of some other colour....

That looks like it might be really really dirty. And the picture appears to have been taken with a potato.

However, I initially wanted british racing green with the brogue interior, but my salesman talked me out of it, said none of his longtime Jag customers had gone with that color since there is nothing traditional about the Fpace. I went with black, kind of wish I had gone with the dark grey but you can't go wrong with black IMO.

It's kind of hard to tell from the photo because the car is obviously dirty. It's either the British racing green or the dark blue. Either way, I know you guys will never let your F-Paces get that dirty. That is the downfall of black and other dark colors, got to keep em clean to look good.

That is exactly the combo I went with - BRG + Brogue. My dealer was telling me that resale is harder on BRG because it tends to attract a very specific subset of Jag enthusiasts, whereas a lot of the other colours have broader appeal. So it doesn't surprise me your dealer would talk you out of it. I am hoping this really is just a potato picture... I think I am going to stick with the BRG for now since my heart was so set on it.

I'd stake my life that is NOT BRG. That looks like a very very dirty Dark Sapphire Blue taken with an Instamatic camera from 1970 on a cloudy day with a smudged lens.

Personally never been a fan of BRG, but I saw that color on a XJ when I went to the dealer last time and it looked very nice. Way better in person. And not on Instamatics.

If you look closely at the picture, the trim that surrounds the windows is silver. I don't remember seeing that before. I don't like it. I hope it comes black like all the previous photos I've seen.

Prestige and Portfolio models come with the chrome window surrounds, while R-Sport and S models come with the black. I personally wanted the chrome window surrounds (more traditional Jag), but alas they refused to add them to my S.

Desperately hoping you are right! ALl the BRG Jags I have ever seen in person looked stunning, so I was just hoping that the F-Pace BRG is the same BRG that is used on the other models... not a variation that is lighter or something. I hope I am panicked over nothing
