    What is your favorite car color?

    I like red, but was told it agitates people and they may 'key' or damage car.

    Black is sleek when new, but shows defects once it ages and holds heat too much.

    White shows dirt too much, but is is nice and cool in the heat.

    It is either blue or silver for me I guess?

    What is your favorite car color?

    Silver excels at hiding defects of all kinds. Blue, not so much.

    I like dober gray(or the gray the subies come with)

    However silver friggin looks great when washed and waxed and does hide the dirt real nicely, My wagon is more of a pewter color and not sure how she will looked detailed, but as with dirt I park in a dirt lot(where we store our heavy equipment) and the dirt doesnt show bad at all unless it gets real windy and dusty.

    AHHH! A RED CAR! I AM NOW ANGRY, AND MUST INFLICT DAMAGE UPON IT...

    ...not how it works, exactly. Get red if you're happy with it. Blue pops, people notice it, but if you're really worried about subtle aggression, it'll be a ton better than red.

    silver is boring, but some of the new greys are cool.

    Some of the newer whites look really nice.

    I have had two black cars and two blue cars. Black is a PITA to keep clean. I like dark gray cars.

    Silver is way boring, never looks dirty but never looks that great either.

    Never been a fan or red or yellow.

    BLUE FTW

    Black's mine, but it really is a pain to keep clean. It doesn't help my case that the previous owner of my car left the paint in the worst condition I have ever seen on an 05+ car.

    Silver looks fairly good and doesn't draw too much attention. I had a 2001 Celica (bleeeehhhh) that was silver and one of the few things I liked about that car was the fact I only washed it once a month or so and it still kept it's shine really well considering the weather that was thrown at it.

    Funny you should say that about red. I can't tell you the number of times I have found myself crossing the double yellow lines just to run into red cars. In fact, I had a number of old keys welded to the sides of my car so that I would be able to go into powerslide drifts milimeters from red cars during which the keys would carve long streaks down the side. I call it Powerkeying.


    Oh, and on the color discussion I bought DGM and freakin' love it - but it really is personal, so eyeball the different color options and see what you like.
