Hey guys,

I just joined this forum because I will be joining the accord world here very soon, possibly this weekend. I just graduated college and I am buying a 2011-2012 Honda Accord ex-l coupe v6. My question to you guys is what color should i go with?!? I wanted blue.. but it seems blue is very rare to find used and for a good price. So I brought it down to two options. San marino red, or grey. Do you guys have any advice on this??? here are the two cars I am possibly buying this weekend, please any advice will help.

Not sure who told you red fades but you can ignore that. Modern cars are clear coated which protects them from UV rays. 30 years ago car paint can fade. Not really a problem today.

Buy what you want and enjoy it!

don't get me started on the danger and illegality of tinting your tailights. :thumbsdow

blue is a rare color. i liked it in red when i was buying but did NOT like the light brown interior (stains and hard to keep clean). in the end I went with the PMM (dary gray) and I'm happy with the choice.

Honestly either will be fine.
Checkout the maintenance section. Glenn has a nice write up on washing, claying, polishing, waxing your car. That will be the key to having good color for years to come.
