FD3 colour... what looks best?
« on: April 14, 2005, 01:33:24 PM »
I am still looking to find the right car in the Jap auctions and I am purposely just looking at the dark colours black/green/blue..
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??

White looks great IMHO, but only when clean which is not very often over in the UK.

I must say I still think the blacks look best.. however.. I am bidding on a grey one in tomorrows auction (looks more like silver in the pics to me) but I don\'t think I will get it as the starting bid price is pretty high.

Does anyone know if they made FD3\'s in grey?? or is this more likely to be silver??

white --- if you really want the "jap look" suits FDs quite well but everyone will go "thast an mx5" lol..

black --- look stunning most of the time

that greeny/blueish colour never seen that before looks cool

Innocent Blue looks great, but I think was a later colour?

I wasn\'t convinced about white, but now...

grrrr........!!!
