Blood Orange or Mandarin ?

Just your thoughts on the color between Blood Orange and the new color of Mandarin, i personally prefer the Blood Orange seems to be a bit more brighter and in your face.
Whats your opinions ?
Cheers John

Re: Blood Orange or Mandarin ?

John,

I think you spend far too much time online. Suggest you advise the fellow GT owners in this forum as to who installed satellite DSL internet access in your GT-P and how much it cost?

Chris
PS I hope you dont surf while driving!!!

Re: Blood Orange or Mandarin ?

I haven't seen both in the flesh side by side yet so I have to reserve judgement. Blood Orange has been by far my favourite colour in the Ford range....so at the moment I will say it. I haven't even seen a Mandarin car around yet.

Re: Blood Orange or Mandarin ?

I'm not a fan of both colours. Though if forced to choose I'd go for Blood orange.

Unfortunately it reminds me too much of MR PlyWood's work trucks where my wife works.

When I bought the XR6T I had a choice of Black or Blood Orange if I wanted the car delivered in two weeks. I chose Black.

Madarin looks good on the Territory though.

Definately Blood Orange, Mandarin is one of those colours that needs full sunlight to look its best.
