Question Blue or Black?!

Hey guys...I'm really hurting here. I'm planning on buying an RS, but I can't make up my mind with the color. I thought I wanted black, but I've seen the blue as well, and I just can't make up my damn mind!!!

Does anybody have pics of their RS's in Blue or Black so i can make some comparisons?

I'd really appreciate it, and even If you don't, you're opinions are really appreciated!

Thanks in advance!

Have a Nice Day?

In their infinite wisdom Subaru ceased production of the black RS with the '99 model year. This has driven the price of these rare machines to record highs. Details at 11.

And as we all know, black is the fastest color, especially with that layer of dust that never goes away.......

Oh man, I must be bored.

Thanks for all the input guys...I really appreciate it. The reason why i'm at a crossroads with this, is because I've seen the Blue one, and it looks almost metalic when the light hits it. I was told that the Black one doesn't have that metalic flare to it, and that its a slightly duller color. But the thing is I've always been a big fan of Black, and most of you...with the exception of the polka dots color scheme that Nick suggested and the gradient from Black to Blue...which sounds pretty damn tight by the way, I think I'm gonna stick with Black! Thanks everybody for your help!

Get it repainted purple with green polka dots!

Out of the two, my vote is for black.

A gradiented custom paint job from Royal Blue to Black would look killer.

Black is definitely a pain to keep clean. After hours of washing and waxing, you'll get about 15 minutes of nice clean shiny car before dust settles. They are really really nice minutes with the red flecks shining and everything though. I'm happy with my black 99rs.
