I do love the red one as well! Thats why my first 2 choices were between white and red! And being an owner of a red G35, i can say red looks stunning on cars but you will have to deal with color fade over tym! Ive repainted most of my car already and actually repainting some parts before trading the car in!

I understand what you're saying about red color fade. But I find that metallic reds are much more resistant to color fade than flat reds. Has anyone else ever noticed this? That's why I'm leaning towards the metallic Patagonia Red.

I would opt for that but it feels kinda weird having all those sparkly bits on a red car! It kinda looks bedazzled for me! :sorry:

thanks for sharing, white looks awsomme but so is red.

I think modern red paints dont fade, Mercedes says that all their paint uses the same tech, but the metallic is the for the look. Both metallic and non metallic uses nano tech and dual layer clear paint.
