Help Xr Colour

Please guys help me with a colour. I have already placed my order for the following. XR6Turbo UTE Factory 18's,Hard tonneu,Leather and stereo upgrade. I have currently ordered it in Narooma Blue cause I had to pick a colour to get the order in the sytem. I am not convinced this is the right colour. My boss is getting a turbo sedan in silver ( so that's out even though I like the colour). I,ve had black cars before ( Too hard to keep clean). My current AU11 XR6 UTE is light silver ( Want something different). So I am absolutely stuffed because Ford have offered so many great colours in the BA XR's. The more help the better please give me your opinions..............

Whilst I absolutely love Phantom (reminds me of Plum Crazy on the really tuff Mopars) I guess Blueprint would be the way to go. Brighter and easier to keep clean than Narooma Blue.

Just my personal opinion, but I wouldn't touch that horse wee colour, Acid Rush.

Mate, it's very personal. I like the Mercury Silver - there was a ute at the SMS and it looked great. I would stay with the Narooma Blue as a second preference. You lucky bastard - what a delimma?

I'd probably consider Phantom very seriously with that Narooma Blue being second preference.

The only thing I have against Phantom is that it is a "fashion" colour - it will be out of fashion next year and you'll have to wait 20 years for it to come back. Same with the horse pee colour. Except you'll have to wait even longer!

I say go for the acid rush!
bright, noticable, easy to maintain (as it is not a dark colour)...
phantom/blueprint/acid rush...
you won't be disappointed either way...
one of those mate!! =)

g'day mate

what a delimma indeed!

well if you dont like the "wash-a-day" colours like black/phantom try and go a lighter colour.

is it possible to get blood orange on the XR's? THAT colour I would get for sure...

Hey with the stereo you optioned, what does it give you and how much was the option?

I'd have to agree if the orange available on the pursuit ute is available for turbo ute then thats my pick as well!
