    What color radiator tubes should I get?

    I have a Silver 2011 Subaru Impreza WRX. I'm trying to figure out what color I should get, the main options and common colors that parts come in are, Blue, Black or Red. I was thinking red, but now im thinking about blue. What does everyone think? What looks good with a silver WRX. I saw a couple silver WRX's with Red, but I can't choose. Help?

    Voted. Easy question, any other color would stand out way too much. Radiator hoses are big.

    Black. Colored hoses just aren't my style. I feel like that trend died in the early 2000s

    Here's my question: do you need rad hoses? The car is practically new.

    Since it makes no sense to change colour and since you already have black hoses, if they still work (they don't leak) then why buy new hoses?

    I won't be adding hoses until much later.. You're correct though. I just wanted an opinion.

    Yes - no need to replace what is not broken.
