of the options offered, red. As much as I like a white car, I don’t think it shows off the lines of the Coupe as well ... though I agree that AdrianLs recently acquired white does work well. Compare his to Dazarooni (just my personal opinion) and because the sill and front extensions are also white you lose the lines of the car making it look heavy by comparison ...

As above, both will be sensitive to the choice of trim and wheels ...

The white sills give a lot more aggression to the R and suit it. The R is all about theatre with the V8 sound, crazy acceleration and the aggressive body coloured sills help make the car look like the aggressive beast that it is.

I don't think a sleek and gentle look suits the R or SVR at all. For the V6 this is fine as it's much less to do with loud noise, 0-60 times and aggressive looks.

How about green
I like the green SVR, shades of the greatest 911 colour, Viper Green.

Problem : the car looks great in any colour, but standard black. But even that is an opinion...
As for the fading of standard paint : my ultra blue is now 4 months old . I can see a difference in
colour tone between the bumpers and the rest of the car, due to the plastic having a different
primer, I guess. Its not obvious and not visible under every angle or type of light..

The thing of white with a blackpack is ; it makes the car look wider, in particular with a black roof.

And like basher says : go to as many 'life' viewings as possible, to get to know what the paint looks
like and what the wheels look like. I trusted on the configurator and chose a lot less spectacular
wheels since the configurator lacks contrast.

Dan's hit the nail on the head - the F-Type would look great in primer! :D

Gone for Ultra Blue with black Alloys and black pack. Pickup on 1st... Ajl
Cant fault you.. ..as I have ultra blue too, with chrome... And I hated it when I first saw it in daylight, sunny day..

Now, as its mostly clouded, and I toned it down with a ceramic coating, its better.

Velocity blue is the colour I had in mind, but the configurator is far too unrealistic to show the real colour..

But had I seen it "LIFE" before I ordered, I would have chosen red...

Later, after seeing more F-Types "LIFE" I'd would have gone for white...

But now, the ultra blue ánd white are my equal choices, but with a blackpack, outside and inside.. :mrgreen:

Although the stunning bright green above is tasty too..
