Try to think of it in terms of the options you want.

The coloured callipers, different seats,and sunroof may look better,for you, on one colour rather than the other.

Look beyond the base colour and view it as a complete package

I've probably made it harder for you now :lol:

Can't help you mate, you are all alone there

Because, I'm still in exactly same situation for the past three month and none the wiser .

One day is white, then next day is black :facepalm:

Today is white :lol:

Tbh Im not usually a fan of black but every time I look at mk3 threads the black is the colour that draws me in the most so I vote for black ,think I'd buy it in black ;)

White car and black wheels :nope: look great clean but otherwise just look like they have no impact on the look of the car.

So if you're thinking forged wheels, black for sure.

Now white with refinished forged wheels in any colour other than black would work.

All in my opinion of course but I did have black wheels on my mk2 FW for about 6 months before I saw the error of my ways.

Black, after seeing it in the flesh yesterday, it's simply stunning, if you're thinking of changing little things colourwise (calipers / mirrors / spoiler /wheels etc) any colour will go with it. :nice:

Prefer NB my self :rofl: . I didn't go for black as it never looks clean plus swirly marks etc and white is a bit boring and all those tar spots on white would make me go potty :blink: . End of the day it's all down to personal choice. May the choice be with you :jedi:

I think it looks stunning in black, but you have to think about keeping it clean, that's one of the reasons I would not have that colour.

i was in the same boat but between blue or white,in the end i went for white,bit boring i suppose but ive had a white xr3i,rs turbo,4x4 saph,es cos, so i may as well continue the theme :smile:

i couldnt risk the blue without seeing it in person as it just varied so much in the pics,at least black is a pretty safe option as well

Escort Mk3 White, RS Series 1 White, Astra GSI White, RS Mk2 x2 FW... I think the escort started the trend - it was very nice in the white.... I've probably brain washed myself to lean towards white... and anything else is a battle in the brain...

I ask myself, when I look out my window, or when i leave the house - what would I be happiest to see - i think the answer is a nice gleaming white car...

I think in my own mind I know where I'm going... FW...

I assume the little blue touches inside (blue stitching on the gear gator, steering wheel, seat edges...) are only available on the Nitrous Blue colour.

Any other colour choice and it will probably all be black stitching.

I thought the blue touches were to complement the standard blue RS badge / logo regardless of the colour of the car.
