    hard choosing aint it I struggled too! If you like the red, consider the ££ you save by not 'upgrading' to another colour. I chose red in the end :wink:

      Blue - The red will fade and turn to pink unless you want to give masses of TLC to the paintwork.

      Also Blue is an exclusive VXR colour so if you see an Astra in blue you know it is a VXR.

        Lies! It was advertised in red - vaux say it all!

        Oh dear look what you have done Mega

        Also, its the new 'power red' now, which apparently isn't as susceptible to fade as the previous 'flame red'.

        Finally, with a stunning car like ours, we should be giving them loads of TLC, whether they be red, blue or the other two :wink:

          Have a look at some pictures in the "User's cars" are, maybe that helps you deciding.
          If I would now buy a VXR I would take Arden Blue, looks great, is exclusive as vxr - xtc said. If you don't want the others to know that you're driving a VXR, then take Black. It's hard to keep clean and save from swirls, but looks very good, as well.

            BLue maybe the colour that is unique to the VXR, but nearly every person on here has one , so it doesnt make it too special
            Same with red!.


            I would say go silver if you want to be different from the masses

              We had a black VXR and Blue VXR sitting on the forecourt when I chose this... also note I owned a black sxi sports hatch at this point.

              We looked at the following... the black did look like the SRI and we had to double take to make sure it was the VXR. However black does look the dogs on the sports hatch. But it does blend in to the other sports hatch range.

              Blue - its exclusive, metailic (bonus point for me!), eye catching, also blue cars are rarer than red.

              Red - From people and also seeing Red VX's driving around.. like all red cars they are likely to fade unless TLC is paid. I don't have the time or patience to do the car every sunday.. had mine 6mths and this weekend was the first time it had a polish.. it has been washed approx once a fortnight... poss longer before that.

              It is personal choice.... these are only my thoughts.

                  So the only help would be watching pictures .

                    All personal choice so choose which you prefer. If possible see one in both colours, in the flesh, and decide. The users car section has some good pics but would still recommend seeing in the flesh

                      I had a choice of Arden or silver, went for silver in the end , not that popular but looks great in the sun and at night, just wish it came in white though, and for some reason the 19s dont look that big on silver :?

                          Didn't like silver until I saw it in flesh and then I must admit it looked really good

                              well i'm only gonna say 1 colour and that is black you clean it properly and it is easy to keep clean but if i was gonna go for any other colour would be the silver the other 2 ( sorry boys and girls ) are too common the stats prove that

                              stealth no more but beware of the silver lightning GSI with vxr power
