    Question I can't decide

    I am a few days away from buying a ST3. I just am having trouble deciding on a color. The local dealer will be getting a Tangerine Scream ST3 and Tuxedo Black ST3 in the next few days. I really like the Tangerine Scream, but my concern is the potential for it being the new "Arrest Me Red". I am also open to just placing an order for the Race Red or Performance Blue (sorry no offence, but white doesn't do it for me). With the way the weather here is right now there isn't much use for a performance FWD car, so I can wait to order one. I kindly ask for your best arguments to sway me to a particular color. I had a black F150 Lightning which I loved, when it was clean. I still have a Torch Red (looks like Race Red) Cobra, and a bright Orange Chevelle SS454. Please give me your best argument for a color choice. Thanks everyone!

    Cobra, first week I had my Tangerine Scream I was pulled over twice. Black will always be stealth and garner less attention than brighter alternatives. At the end of the day, get what you like. Don't worry about the cops, get a nice radar detector and call it a day.

    Red is sportier, black is stealthier. That's a tie. I will always let the other guy buy the black car and keep it clean though... can't be bothered to wash my car multiple times a week. It also depends if you're in a place where it snows a lot I suppose though... but my redf car already looks like crap in the winter. But you should see the black titanium next door... poor Alex, I feel for him right now.

    Re: I can't decide

    I was set on a sleeper color (white or black). I settled on the tangerine scream though because I feel the paint shows the car's lines and creases the best.
    It's a color that may only be available for the first year. And I've kinda got a paint fetish. Tri coat? Yes please.

    I have a Tuxedo Black ST3. The metallic black paint looks absolutely beautiful up close and personally, I think the tangerine scream paint is a tad loud overall and will have less of an appeal over time. Either way you choose, you will have a great car

    There's only one color, black.

    Why? It makes the car look more expensive, which chicks dig and so does your local car wash.
