It is a rather interesting colour, just like dehydrated urine!
My wife has a golden yellow Mazda2, often described as golden shower or metallic urine.

Hey,

Love the car, good choice

I to had the same feelings as you when I first saw the Tangerine express, my previous Pug 307 was in the Burnt Orange (Paprika) colour and so I already had a soft spot for the lair, different colour.
My other half at the time wanted me to have NHB (so to did my friends), but I stuck to my guns and went Orange as I wanted to be a bit more unique out on the road as I see way too many black civics.

I love mine, it's great and I'm slowly making little changes to it now I'm getting into it.

Here's mine in all it's glory.

Ian

Great photos, I like the first one in particular!

I think 'Bronze' would be a better name, Tangerine makes me think of a brighter orange.

Hey Guys,

Yeah you are right, in certain light conditions the colour is different to Orange and thats one of the appeals to me. The way it does change in bright light.

Sorry to hijack another members thread but I can chat Orange all day

Some more you may like.

Indeed!

I would be keener on the Milano if it was metallic.

I had to have the Blades, after seeing them on here and then in real life before I brought the car I had to have them.

Hey,

Ah, see I didn't give in to my wife to be.
I got all the line of "please dont get orange" to "You wont be taking me anywhere in it" but now she loves it and the colour as it's still quite rare on the roads as it's not to everyones taste.

I always acknowledge and wave at fellow Tangerine pilots and get acknowledges back.

Ian
