i have ordered a XR6T and still a little undecided with a colour. the topic of "which colour will attract potential vandals" came up and i thought i'd ask if anyone has had any trouble.

i like blueprint, but it is very bright and could attract them.

sorry, but i have no evil master plan to steal any cars!!!!!!!

I see that many Blueprint cars on the road now (there's one parked outside my work as I speak) that I think any other colour would be more likely to attract them :)

Well I'm looking at getting a N/A XR6 within the next month or so, and am thinking black or narooma blue... I like blueprint but there are far too many of them!
