That's clever. Give me the Milano Red in the background anyday. That does look really dirty. Bet you're glad you didn't get a white one Wheelie?!

i hoped it would be nice and white like this:



the dirt on the CTR was just the dirt from the back of the lorry so who knows what a 300 mile drive could do to it :P

i presume so, im not sure i like it with the stickers though, only seems to work on the other colours - just personal opinion mind u!

their order system seems epic

he selected the CTR CW and then it asked him what colour he wanted it in

then said it didnt exist

White doesn't look good imo - too much exposed black plastic on the car. Still might look better in the flesh though.

CW is an off-white anyway.

Its been used for years so not sure why anyone would expect this CW to be a different colour from any previous CW ?

By the way I agree that there's better shades of white out their, the Mercedes white they have on the new C-class sport is stunning !!

I'd be more interested in the discounts avail. If you can get it say 1k more than you can a type-r GT (can be gotten around 16k) then its worth the extra for the factory fit LSD (with no ESP probs). If however they're holding out for closer to 20k, give it a wide berth (in my opinion!)

i think this colour suited the dc2 integra and a few other older type-r's, but not the fn2. red is where its at.
