Not sure what to make of that, those windows certainly look a bit strange, think I would have to see one in front of me before I could make my mind up about it.

The first words that came to mind were 'spectacularly ugly' but it might look better in the flesh. First impressions suggest the Enviro400 is by far the best looking of the Euro VI deckers so far from here.

To be honest, with it being Optare it is never going to look completely normal, most, if not all of their vehicles look a bit odd at first in my opinion. You only have to look at the present solo's, they are odd looking things, again just my opinion.

My first impression is it looks good although i think the Solo SR design would have looked nicer at the front rather than this TempoSR/MetroCity style design. At least they never made a Versa style front Laugh

That's quite interesting, I prefer the Optare MetroDecker over the wretched Enviro400 MMC design.

Each to their own as they say!

In a weird way I do like this, much better than the Gemini3 or StreetDecker whatever it's called. The MetroCity/TempoSR design has been growing on me and it's interesting to see how it works on a double decker.

It does seem that both the MetroCity and this are concentrated on London though, with the MetroCity not yet available as a single door option so we'll see what happens with this.

Looks interesting nice to have something different. Wonder if Liverpool would get any in the long run? Would make a change from the seas of Pulsars Geminis Enviros and ALX400s.

Even then the scene in Liverpool will change slightly with the new Enviro400 design and the Pulsar being stopped but agreed!
