There's no question here; the color you want is Octane. That color amazing in the sun. Also, I would describe it as a mature HIP color. Has pop but very tasteful and grownup.

Octane is dark, and will likely show dirt easier than the blue.

I'd be hard pressed to choose either myself.

Both are great colors I'm just not a fan of the color of the stripe.

Both colors are very nice, I love how deep and rich the shine is in the octane red, looks just like a ruby.
Now that the SRT has the scoop in the center of of hood and is cut out of the stripe, I personally would do without the stripe altogether. May all your difficult choices in life be such good ones.
Now the tough question, stick or automatic?

Sounds like Octane w/o the stripes would be the best compromise!

Stripes look bad on the red car but I like the color. I don't like that shade of blue at all. B5, on the other hand, is a fantastic color.

Buy what you want, it's your car! Just imagine walking up to your car every day... what color would you rather walk up to?

I absolutely love that blue and am surprised nobody else does.

Have either of you seen the colors in person? I feel that can sometimes make a big difference.

While I like the blue, Octane Red is an awesome color. A Guy

First of all let me congratulate you for choosing two colours in a world of grayscale cars.

My choice is the blue. The Octane red needs the sun to bring out its best and does it ever! But the blue looks very good in all shades of light.

Your choice, a wrong one can't be made here.

Go with blue. Too many deep reds like octane on the streets. I also like the stripe: old school and makes a nice contrast.

Typically your first thoughts are the best thoughts. I personally like them both. If possible compare to in person. But if it comes out to be equal, then I look at ease of maint and how will this car look to me in 10 years. The second part I think is important. I thought those those hot green challengers were cool, but told my self ehh not going to like it after a while. I see them now after I ordered three years later and glad I didn't.

This is an interesting thread, because we are all attracted to different things about a car.

I like the silver stripes myself. This is a "can't lose" situation when you have to choose between these 2 cars.

I would go with the Indigo Blue. :wink3:
