Does anyone have any pictures of a Mokka in snowflake white?
 
I am looking at ordering one, but haven't seen this yet and want to see how it compares to summit white as to whether it is worth the extra money. I like the Kuga pearlescent white and wanted to see if it was anything like that?
 
Help please anyone...? Smile

I saw a snowflake white and summit white next to each other a few weeks ago. My honest opinion.....i could not tell them apart. The snowflake does have a two tone look when you're up close, however the two tone is a darker shade (it's pretty hard to explain on paper! Wacko
 Now the biggest factor between the comparison was this fab weather us Brits have dealt with that Serbia kindly sent our way.... I reckon, in the summer months, with the sun beaming off the gorgeous Mokka(s), you couldn't tell the difference between the Snowflake or Summit white. 
 
This is why I opted for Summit, couldn't really justify the extra cash for paint which is probably used in the Summit White but with a few extra sparkles chucked in Big smile

When i ordered mine in Summit it didn't really go into too  much detail so when it arrived and i noticed the paint had a pearlescence / sparkle to it i wondered if they had actually put the wrong paint on.

Don't tell me Vauxhall made a mistake? LOL 

I bet if you parked next to another Mokka in Snowflake White and got someone to tell the difference, they wouldn't be able to! You do have to look close, and I mean close to tell the difference. 

If you haven't ordered yet, hold out for a couple of weeks to see how this new Orange will look.....I have a feeling it could be pretty close to the Sportage orange, almost 'Burnt'?

I don't think it sparkles as it not a metallic paint? It's pearlescent so it should just look a bit glossy at different angles( like a pearl) like others said is it worth 700? I doubt it. Would like to park mine next to a snowflake and take a photo tho. If you got monies to burn get the pearlescent ;)

I saw both whites next to each other during their PDIs . Whilst both dirty , the Summit appeared brighter by far . I would imagine that the pearlescent  paint requires good light for any effect to be noted , so this Sunday would be a suitable day to compare the finishes if you have access to compare them outside . Personally , I don't believe it is worth the premium . I also am upset that VX charges for the Summit White where it is a no cost option for the Trax .

They charge for all paints apart from a flat base royal blue don't they? It's all business.
