    Hi all I’m new so go easy please , just wanted to ask as soon il have another p6 in my life but it’s red . Not a colour I would choose really but she’s a 3500s and I couldn’t say no, I think maybe it should stay as so if I find out that was the original colour? I suppose I’m asking is red generally seen as a bad colour on a p6 because I’m not sure on it ?

    It’s a long way yet from a coat of paint but red made me step back and if it wasn’t a 3500s my search would still be on . As a kid I must have mainly seen Brasilia and Mexico browns / almonds / Cameron greens and a very rare scarab blue or avacado , but the more I look at the Monza red it gives the p6 a bit of attitude maybe suits the 3500s personality more , think I’ve come around and can move on , maybe

    I like the colorful variants too.
    They look more fresh, a taste more sporty.
    Mine was Richelieu Red, a colour i wouldn't choose.
    Now its paprika.
    Monza Red is also beautiful. Personally i like the style Damian created to his monza red 3500S

    Thanks I must have a look at that when I find my way around a bit better to be honest though I’m hoping the paperwork says Cameron green or Brasilia , I suppose whatever it is il stick with it , might keep the red if it’s another almond one though !

    Red is the best colour, though there are a couple in the P6 colour play list that tickle my fancy such as Lunar Grey, Avocado and Paprika but the colour that sells is always Red.

    Would I have a choice I would prefer a Color like April yellow. I find it ist the most underestimated colour ever!

    My car was (and is) Arden green and when the car was repainted I was too much on the traditional trip as to met an decision for an alternate colour. Meanwhile I refurbished the interior (sandalwood) too so there is no way to change the colour of the car, because in case of "April yellow" green for the interior is a must-have. In my eyes (perhaps only)...

    Hi Reinhard well I have to admit I wouldn’t be overly mad on April yellow but I suppose we’re all different , I’m not even mad on Monza red and it seems very popular , sure do like the idea of a green interior though , a lot, could you not dye seats to suit ? I actually think I would have Cameron green with green carpets and black seats or even green carpet and green seats same with Brasilia or Mexico brown and brown interior but I’ve bad taste
