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

As I said I'm colour blind and there's no way I would choose those colours!!!

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!!!

Still hideous colours but at least you can read it now.
