To be brutally honest, I don't like any of them, however, out of the ones you displayed, I like the white one the best.

If you're repainting your car, why go black? You should do something exotic like the WRX pearl blue or something. My 2 cents.

btw nice lookin GT. That's like what mine should look like.. :(

Can't say I care for the current choices either. If you're going to paint the car, why not get an arctic white color and then do your molding in glossy black? Like the Ford Motorsports of Europe? There were a number of Merkur Xr4Ti's in that scheme that look stunning. Make sure you add and color match the mudguards too. And the mirrors.

Don't even THINK about doing that. I decided I was going to do that. No one appreciates the WR Blue Pearl like me. I mean no one. I've been an admirer of the WRX since it was first introduced and put into production in February of 01. The only color I'd ever buy it in is WR Blue Pearl. I would search long and hard for a used blue pearl WRX just because of this color. See...beggers can be choosers sometimes. :lol:

Notice my love for blue? if you do that go for the blue. blue rules! :wink:

lol, thanks for your input, guys. i've decided, with some persuasion from you and my gf, that black is a tad overdone :) i don't know if i like the wrx blue, but i do like the "out of the blue" colour they use on the cadillac escalades (see www.cadillac.com -> build your own) with either white accents, red accents, or just plain blue

new paint job

as stated black is really nice looking if , if you can keep it clean . it shows all the dirt and dust . I know . I have one . I like the black though . mine has small gold and silver pinstipes. very nice . on yours , I like the black with red accent stripes , but I would understate them rather than make them showy and they would look good . also hope the front of the car will be black too, as white doesn`t look right on an otherwise all black car . Just my oppinion as requested . have fun whatever you decide . H

Don't get a cheap paintjob if you're going to recolor from white to black. A cheap Maaco job will start flaking off within a year and a half, and then it will look pretty darn bad. If you're going to get a paintjob worth anything, be prepared to spend some $$$$

:roll:
I've been an admirer of the WRX ever since I first saw Colin McRae racing back in '96 (thank you Speedvision. That doesn't mean I'd be a cheeseball about it and only buy a car in World Rally Blue Pearl.

BTW, Colin McRae won the Championship for Subaru with a WRX back in '92, a car that was first introduced to the Japanese plublic in October of that year... 9 years before you took notice, 5 years before I did... so I'm sure that it wouldn't be too hard to round up a stadium full of folks who appreicates the color more than you or I do. :p :p :p
