Which boot is rarest?
« on: 16, September, 2013 - 16:57:56 »
I always thought that the grey boot models were rarer, but out of the 7 we've owned only one has had a white boot! So which is rarest? Let's find out!

My two have grey boots and I've certainly seen far fewer white ones than grey ones for sale.

Has anybody ever pinpointed which month they changed? Ours are january (grey) and May (white), although we've also had several March grey versions

So Feb could be the month of change then... it'll be interesting to see the poll results because Ebay seems to result in grey selling for more too!

I always thought that the white boot was intruduced to help some of the bad press around being seen in the C5, so Sinclair changed from the grey to the white to help make the C5
more visible fom the rear ?

It's looking like it's about 3-1 white at the moment then!
