iaint, what\'s the paint code for yours, as I think Blue, just like yours, is the ebst colour and i think i have a complete respray coming my way (The red has faded in many places) and I\'m thinking about going for blue!

I was dubious about silver until I saw one in the flesh - they look fantastic. I don\'t normally do white either like you, but somehow the FD gets away with it!

Absoultely no clue!  Came like that from Japan and isn\'t a standard colour.  Has a violet flip in it which comes out in bright sun or flourescent lights.

Red of course! Everyone knows that red cars go faster. And, luckily for me, mines red! (And a respray in another colour aint gonna happen, cos i aint taking all the stuff out the enigne bay!)

There seem to be a lot more silvers/whites in good stock condition but as I have only ever seen these in pictures, to me the FD3 looks a bit "hairdressery" in these light colours.

The red ones look kind of ok... a bit too flash maybe.. and they seem to get the worst paint fade out of all of the colours.

Whats your opinion??



Silver for me and no I\'m not a hairdresser!!

got to be white:
1)   looks great at night and even better in a day light
2)   uncommon in the UK
3)   classy colour
