Just been looking around on Stuff and saw a article on a new BMW hatch, so thought i'd have a read... then OMG what is up with the awful coloured box I think displaying the specs etc.

Come on how can anyone actually think those are a good choice...

Now I am colour blind, but not bad and I can't read anything in that box.

What's wrong with using light colours for backgrounds!!

Looks terrible. I think they tried to match it up with the car but the person doing so must be colour blind

I'm not colour blind, and it's barely legible.

I'm not colourblind and I am hereby authoritatively declaring that it's horrendous.

Slight colour blindness, not too bad.

Hideous colours on that page.

Has purple suddenly become fashionable or something - it's equally mind blowing at White Pages!!!
