    I like the silver grey but everyone knows red ones go faster

    Just out of interest, how much are RX8s going for these days?

    Re: Which colour car shoudl I go for ?

    I would take the grey myself, but there's no denying that the red is more exciting.

    I once had to choose between a grey and red Honda S2000 (which is quite similarly shaped to the RX8) and in the flesh I thought that the red just looked too flash. It is a great car either way.

    The grey, but make sure it comes with a saw to remove anyone's legs that need to sit in the back.

    The grey, the insurance premiums are probably slightly lower.

    Re: Which colour car shoudl I go for ?

    The red if its mazda velocity red. Its one of the nicest paints I've seen, up close it just has such depth and sparkles at you. The sun catches it amazingly and it does not show the dirt particularly (although neither will the grey) Best colour IMO.

    I would never buy a red car unless i was keeping it for a short time.

    Someone will tell me now, red car fading is a myth or they just need to be taken care of a little more often

    Depends on the car. I've seen countless faded red Corsas and similar. But my red Golf GTI is still mint in that respect, and I don't really look after it at all. I'm sure it's all about the quality of pigment used.

    Re: Which colour car shoudl I go for ?

    I think red.... silver tends to blend in the background. I had a silver car and i'm sure it was invisible sometimes from the amount of People just not paying attention.

    Fading is a lot less prevalent now than it used to be and with something like the rx8 then you can expect it to be good quality paint. My mum has an mx-5 in velocity red 2004 and it still looks as new.
