I always tell dealers not to put their adverts on the rear window. If they do, I take it off infront of them and get their man to clean the screen before I leave. Their name and logo on the number plate is as good as they get.
Red on a Civic is fantastic, but I've never owned a red car ever, but I'm wearing a Head Snowboards long sleeve Tshirt, that is exactly the same shade of red, but never had a red car !
The problem is that Red is flash and sporty. I'm more of your quiet Sociopathic type usually, You know, Stealth up and then blow them away! ( within the legal speed limits mind you.) But Red suits the Civic all the way. (Particularly the Type-S and Type-R)
I have owned several Black cars before (both base black and black with metalic flake) and its a pain to clean and shows scratches and marks. Silver is nice and suits my nature, but I'm not sure.
The other consideration is to get a Type-S GT i-CTDi (chipped) or Type-R GT and keep it standard. I do want the power and look of the Type-R and don't need the economy of the Diesel (weekend use only), but I would like the cheaper insurance and road tax! What do you think, is it worth the extra for the "R" (more agressive look and extra power) or is the Type-S Turbo Diesel (with its wizzie turboeyness) like yours better value and just as much fun? (given no financial or fuel economy constraints as it would only be doing @ 5000 miles per annum).
I must say the pictures of your Type-S GT are pulling me in the direction of a red CTS GT i-CTDi, but I do think I would have to get the plastic bits colour coded by the dealer.:TTurbo:
I've just put a photo of your car on my desktop, to ponder over the colour. It looks so nice.
