I prefer the yellow dc01. And that shade of blue looks quite smart on a dc17! :thumbsup:

Oh yes the DC17 blue looks nice too! The Asthma and Allergy model :)

I also like the DC33 Animal purple, literally looks amazing, just look at it's beauty! :o :o :o
DC14s are tanks, just need a slightly longer motor life. Do plastic parts often break on DC14s? Nope. DC41- Sexy looking futuristic and powerful machine. Just needs a better designed cleaner head wheel and cyclone clip along with a dense metal rod in the chassis.

Not as good looking as I mentoned but I promise it looks so much better when it's wet

The dc01 is all cleaned now but need a blue bumper strip in good condition and 3 new screws for the sole plate then it will be mint.  ;D

Tesco special edition. We had one at home for years. They sold the last of them off for something daft like 110. I bought every one our local Tesco had that they would sell me. When they refused to sell me more I sent people in to get two at a time at different stores. Happy days.  ;D

Haha nice! ;D I'd do the same if I weren't allowed :))  :thumbsup: That's my favourite DC14! If I could get any vacuum in the world brand new, it would be the DC14.

I thought your old DC14 was a DC41 colour cyclone?

I think it was the DC14 toolkit (UK) non clutched with the lighter blue cyclone that was also available too  :thumbsup:

The DC14 is one vacuum IMHO that should never be extinct, and always in use by many. Such a well engineered machine, if they had digital motors or a very durable motor then they would have smashed it!

Hi , i eventually got a blue bumper and the three screws from a donor dc01, its not perfect but i think it looks pretty good. As you can see in the pics the plug is white but have changed it to the original grey round one with the DYSON logo on.

Lovely, I think the blue and grey are the best looking.
