How many have been sold so far?
Abroad, loads. They've been available in South America for years. In the UK, only available since this winter, so who knows!

I don't like the colour options and the prices for them. I don't like how yellow is free and yet they charge £500 for silver. Not good in my opinion especially for people who don't really want bright colours that stick out.

Car manufacturers used to charge only for the finish like matte or gloss. Really hating this new trend.

Thanks for this helpful list, Nick. I think it answers a lot of common questions. I think those who love the car and those who are just starting to learn about it can all benefit from all of this information. :)
