    Yes as gezza says they look good in red.
    Have to agree with isis though, Silver best, but I could be biased.

    I personally really dislike red cars. To me they look cheap. I like the dark grey-blue colour 205's had!

    I guess we are not supposed to care about what foulcan yobbos think, but daresay that in Australia any small, non-V6/V8 'girls' car should at least not be 'miami blue' (or light green) although I love the colour.

    I think the sorrento green one on carsales in Adelaide looks rather nice. Off to look at it tomorrow... (this must be a form of madness)

    The Classics were painted in " Mayerling Green " not Sorrento Green as stated in advertisement. It was an individual colour for this special model only. Personally I think the design and shape of the car makes it look good in just about any colour....

    Agreed with above. THey look great in just about anything. I think I have seen one once in BMW Imola Red. Im about to spray mine, perhaps that would suit...

    There was a guy on here who painted his Toro Red, a Renault colour. It was a deeper, brighter version of Cherry Red and looked great. Might be worth checking out....

    Even though its LMT, I prefer the red carpet and half leather seats . I think their nicer without a sunroof as well. Green is a little snotty IMO.

    It looks like the financial "pinch" is forcing a few people to get rid of their toys. These things look like they have been tucked away as play things.

    I actually flew all the way to Adelaide today to see this car. Big disappointment, and the owner was rude and misleading. So I completely wasted $500. I'll put my comments in a reply to your other thread Jezza. Suffice to say, if anyone is thinking of spending lots of time and money to go see it PM me first and I can give you a realistic view of what the car is like.

    Still think this is a great buy. Even if you could be bothered converting it back to an original car if thats what you wanted... They are only going to get harder to find in good condition, converted or not. Especially the S3s as thats what everyone seems to want.
