: do you get tired of that color?! That is what people are telling me about ordering a 2000 red bmw 323i. Any comments? The only thing I have to say to them is why wont i be bored or tired of a silver one?
Each color has its merits and problems. I like the metallic reds generally since they tend to be stunning when the sun is low in the sky and there is red in the light spectrum. Most of the car ads you will note use red cars filmed at sunset hours. Siena red does get a bit washed out at high noon but at other times and at night it is quite nice. Silver is the best for hiding chips and swirl marks. I also like the metallic greens too, but am now seeing just too many green cars now on the road. It seems almost every SUV is green!
