Hi everyone, I'm new here!
I drove the 2011 WRX and STI back-to-back today and decided that the STI wasn't worth the $10k premium to me, so WRX it is!
I'll most likely be ordering a base hatch, but before doing that, I definitely need to figure out which color to go with. Unfortunately so far I have yet to see one in SWP in person.
My current car is a silver Mazda 3 hatch, which I kind of regret not getting in white. After having seen a silver STI in person, I'm very certain I won't be going with that color this time, popularity and resale value be damned.
I intend to get the taillight overlays with cutouts.
So far this is what I think of the two colors:
- Like the stealthy look
- Too close to black, and shows swirl marks easily?
- Hides dirt better than white
- Better constrast with window frames, lights, grill, wheels and tires, etc.
- Hides swirl marks
- Shows dirt easily
Any opinions? Thanks in advance.
