Hi,

Do certain colours hold their value better, look better etc. Should you go out and buy a colour that looks red hot at the time but maybe a couple of years later is scoffed at?

Anyhow, what is the best overall colour? Post your picture to back up your claim.

My nomination is Citric Acid per the pic below..

I've never really been a great admirer of the citric acid colour but that looks awesome.

I think you'll find bright colours tend to be looked at as crappy years on down the track.

Classic colours like silver, white, black, etc. are just same old same old for years to come.

Red goes fastest but.

Personalyl I like black or dark blue.

heritage green, cos it can look Black/darkgreen/green/darkblue in different light.

and reef green, cos ford has brought back the colour (only just a tad darker) so it must be a great colour
