I think that's likely a reflection of your location. You wouldn't have this same "problem" in Miami, LA, or the NYC suburbs.

I would be all over a GT3 Touring if I were you. GT Silver with alloy wheels is a great looking combo and should do a good job flying under the radar.

I do see a lot of different blue's these days which is nice but red has been really neglected. I always considered dark, burgundy stile reds are gross and IMO there aren't enough bright reds. It's sad that Mazda (Soul Red Crystal) offers a nicer red than BMW does as a standard color on most of their lineup.

True. I really like the Mazda red.
