Default Colour costs

We are thinking of buying a Duster next month. Couple of things troubling me though. Why does anything other than a white paint job cost @500 more? Surely the paint colour costs the same? If I get my home painted, it does not cost more for anything other than white? Also, what CD/Radio is recommended to use since there is not one on the one we were thinking of buying.

From the amount of replies so far, I take it that no one has any ideas why the cost of paint, other than white, is more expensive? Or could it just be that Dacia are using this to screw another 500 out of buyers who want a different colour?

Default Colour costs

Hi There,

We recently settled in stage 6. Soil test revealed 15 Metres More than 50 feet of fill. Site costs are working out to upwards of 100K.

Have any other come across similar situation with soil test and site cost.

Dacia are not the only car maker to charge for metallic paint. This practice started way back when such paint was dearer than sold colour, they just never stopped the practice or maybe metallic finishes are more complex to do, hence the greater cost.
