Black Mica, the black that came on the 05 MSM. I did that to my NB and i love it. or even a white Mica. Looks really good in pictures, for when you hardpark.

Good idea, those are good colors. Will look good when my Miata is hard parked in my driveway, the only time it gets to do that lmao.

Hardparking is what gets done when you have a car completely capable of going to the track, but instead you take it to parking lots and stand around your ride. you answer questions about it, and talk about your kills in bumper to bumper traffic.

Once upon a time, at [email protected] in 09', Savington was hardparked soooo hard in front of the host hotel. Everyone wanted to know about his plywood splitter at the time.

Montego Blue Mica. you can only really see that it's that color from the trunk, but it's my favorite color Mazda has put out. Ever.

If you've got plenty of time to wash it every week, black looks great.
If you don't, it'll look like crap most of the time.


- I vote white.

I'm a sucker for black but scratches and swirls show up if you just look at it. Plus black shows waves and dents. White hides everything!

Thread resurrection: I ended up going with white, Toyota Super White II to be exact (I'm originally a Toyota guy). Still need to put on the vents for the center opening and paint the mesh on the other openings in black.
