Hmm I saw the yellow in person and didn't think it had any orange in it, it popped bright yellow in the sun. A great color, but screamed "look at me" too much for me.

I've noticed that candy red looks very different in pics & IRL. It really does change noticeably depending on angle. I actually don't like the different shades. I prefer the race red.

I agree on the yellow blaze. I would like it better as a purer yellow.

edit: Here's a comparison of yellows. The Mazda is very similar to the yellow of center stripe on roads (much more orange than old Focus' egg yolk yellow). You can see that yellow blaze definitely has more orange in it. This is in late afternoon, partially cloudy light.

Thanks for the pic...I so wanted to like the yellow blaze, but every time I see it the Orange bothers me. I've never seen the race red in person, and since I'm getting a nearly loaded ti its not offered.

If I could, it'd be a Kona. But I can't, so it's a Sterling Grey.

Anyone seen a Sonic Blue yet?

The limited colors for titanium bothers me.

Why can't we have yellow, race red, frosted glass? Among some others.

Top level trim should have all the choices, or even some exclusive choices.

The only one of those three you cannot get on the Titanium is the Frosted Glass.

I believe it has to do with needing 25 posts minimum along with one other requirement that I can't remember (I think it's being a member for 30 days)
