Need some small advice. We're planning to buy a new car, it's a 2013 Honda Jazz/Fit RS
It looks exactly like this:
Now the problem is the colour. Yesterday, I went to the Honda dealership and wanted to look at a Silverstone Metallic (grey) Jazz RS but they didn't have one. Instead they showed me an Alabaster Silver Metallic Jazz RS and I was quite surprised that it looked surprisingly good in that colour.
I asked for colour samples but they didn't have instead the sales woman showed me a Civic in grey. I know that on the Jazz it's quite a different grey but she said it's around the same hue. I was quite disappointed with the colour. The grey had this blue-ish tone on certain light conditions. When I want a dark grey, I really want it to be dark grey, gun metal grey like.
There are other colours but I wasn't deeply interested in.
The Deep Sapphire Blue is too dark for my taste, Rallye Red doesn't look particularly good, Brilliant White Pearl looks very nice but my friend has one on that colour so no, Crystal Black Pearl makes the car look small and Sunset Orange isn't really orange.
What do you think? Is silver the right colour?
BTW, I might change the wheels and tyres because I don't like the 10 spoke wheels on the 2013 model. I much prefer the 5 spoke on last year's model.
The reason I chose the Jazz RS is, well my friend convinced me but also because it's the only affordable car that can be considered as a "hot hatch" in Indonesia, it's also the most powerful in its class. If I wanted other real hot hatches like the Clio RS, DS3, 208 GTi, Golf GTI, Focus ST/RS, etc... the only way to do that is import one and suffer the 200-300% import tax, so that's a big no-no.
