I see where you are going with it, like a ruby color. I agree with ya. The red is kind of "shouty". I'm not a fan of color wheels though. Unless its an Blue STi with Gold wheels.I'll try to post better pics tomorrow, because the pics of the red aren't very accurate. It's roughly the color of the tail lights. It's kind of difficult to say 'it's like this, but different', but I was trying to get close matches without popping the car in the store.
The red is kind of 'hey, look at me!' while the grey is like 'check me out.' Very subdued.
I do appreciate the feedback! I must also throw in the disclaimer that the red was my gf's idea, and I must give her credit for it. (she votes red)[:I]
