What colour Type R?

Guys I'm after some help....after weeks off looking for a CTR I have found one.....however it's silver.

I wanted a black one really, with red being 2nd choice but this silver one seems like a good price and has full history, low mileage etc!

What's everyone's favourite colour CTR and are the silver rarer or worth any more/less than the others? I can't see many other silver ones for sale.

The rarest Type-R colour is Deep Sapphire Blue, IMO it's also the nicest colour available

I have an 07 Nhb type s and an 07 alabaster silver type r.

The black is terrible for stone chips, though I got a front end respray done and the car looks like new again.

The black is very, very rewarding to detail if your into that kinda thing. Most will tell you it's a nightmare to keep clean but that's an exaggeration.


The silver is stunning and less common than the black and red. Also, I do beleive that the paint most definitely is A LOT tougher than my black cars. Perhaps honda gave it an extra coat of laquer or whatever, but you'd be hard pressed to find a single stone chip on my car.

I wanted anything but Milano purely because they were what I saw the most of. Just go with what you want, can't really make your mind up for you

Private or from a dealer? Seems a little on the cheap side, worth around 7k private

Sounds quite cheap tbh. Unless the prices have really shot down since I got mine!

Silver and red looks best with GP Kit and carbon hood. Otherwise I'd go for Blue...

Hold out for the colour you want. One will come up sooner or later. I looked at good cars but wrong colour and thought and thought eventually saying NO, I WANT A RED ONE.! Then a beauty came up!

I really wanted a black ctr when I got mine, but now I regret it, I'd have silver white or red any day of the week. Black shows up every tiny scratch and stone chip.
Also it never occurred to me at the time but the GP splitter pack looks the dogs danglies on every colour but black. Do a little search on here for GP splitter if you don't know what I mean.
