I’d tried applying it in small areas and found it tiresome to apply! Was about to give up on it completely. I’ll take the ease in application for the reduction in longevity - it’s too stressful...

As the owner of a pre-facelift race blue VRS estate, I’d go for the grey. Not my favourite colour, but unique to the VRS I believe. Still don’t know why race blue became available whole range.
