Lime green XR6?

Has Ford got lime green in their paint lineup...seen an XR6 today in which looked really like lime green or similar...and I almost puked!..you ford guys cant honestly tell me you like that colour...what a shocker!..as bad as Holdens 'cadbury' purple...now that sucks....btw what do they call the blue they use...seen a few around in that colour, also white isnt too bad on the XR...makes the headlights standout, must admit it looked good..brought pain to me to say that lol..but it did.

Citric Acid is the colour, nearly break my neck every time I see one around town, still can't decide if it's good or very bad.

Blueprint is the Blue that you like, my first choice also and will be on the new XR!!

i think citric acid is downright tacky and tasteless. yuk. but then again i am quite conservative when it comes to my car colours. it was a toss up betweem black and mercury silver for me. i chose mercury silver because i hate washing cars.

For an XR6 white looks gorgeous. Couldnt imagine a better colour.

XR8 it would be a toss up between phantom and blueprint. But to me blueprint will always be T3, so maybe phantom.

I do like citric acid.. I think!

Haha. Its OK. A lot of Holden fans are having to come to terms with the fact that the Fords actually look good. Over time, more will come out of the closet and declare their liking towards the blue oval, and public acceptance will grow over time.

Citric acid is right up there with Holden's Tiger Gold and that awful lime green that has just come out. They just don't belong on cars!

I think Ford has to change the badging on white BAs. I was following one yesterday and the Falcon badge was so small and light coloured, the C looked like another O.

I had to keep looking as I'm sure it read FALOON.

For my mind, Blueprint is the best colour on any make at the moment.

Yeah do what toyota has done with teh new camry, made the badges black on some colours and sliver on others. Pretty much the same thing ford had to do with the XR Badges on the series 3's.
