Oh this is a huge no-brainer. No way do you want to select the plain old (stunning) Afla Rosso Red like on my Giulia.

The plain old red avoids the $2200 extra for the tri-coat. Your friends will think you are a cheapskate like me!

The plain old red is gorgeous bright red in the sun (deeper red in the shade), no speckled spots and attracts folks from miles around like flies to gawk!

The plain old red looks especially awesome with the yellow brake calipers. Folks will mistakenly think it is a Ferrari!

You will have herds of screaming young chicks asking you for a ride.

Chuck :D


PS: White would be great as that is the same exact color as 95% of the BMW's on the road! ;)

my wife has picked two white bmw's with grey leather interior.
the coming Alfa is also white, but pearl and the interior is a darker grey - so she went for the red door trim to brighten it up a bit.

Well, since she might also be the boss, that will be just fine. :D :D :D

Nothing wrong with Alfa Red. Now, I will say the Rosso Comp is a bit schizophrenic. The sun is shining on her she thinks she is Alfa Red super bright then the shade comes in and you get this Monza red. She does sparkle in the sun so now who does not like sparkles. :) Now I do have to say we have red calipers on the QV so she probably isn't as much of a stand out. But...when she blows out of the lights who sees the calipers in my rear view mirror. Yep Yellow calipers will draw your eyes to the brakes but then everyone notices the carbon ceramic and go wow look at those drums like they saw something they have never seen before. So no yellow for now. Maybe later.

I usually like white cars and I like it on the Giulia too. But I just feel red is more "Alfa", similar to a red Ferrari. I like both reds but decided to go with the more subtle Comp. It doesn't pop as much as Alfa Rosso, but when it's clean and under proper lighting, it's quite special. Until you see a Mazda driving by with the same color and ask yourself why you paid that much for a standard color in other brands. :D

Less than a month away, need to narrow down my decision...

Trofeo White w/Red Calipers

OR

Rosso Competizione w/Yellow Calipers
Tri-Coat Rosso and Red calipers. If you are not going with CCMs the yellows are going to look dirty quickly. I have CCMS but I do have the Tri on Red combo and most people say they wouldn't think the yellow belongs. Sure I would like to bring attention to the huge rotors which yellow will do but would not if they were steel. Not a popular position but I was going to change the color on my calipers to yellow after I got my QV and now well I am glad I didn't. I also stuck with the dark tecnico vs dark teledial. So what I wanted at first would have worn on me quickly. Glad I thought long and hard about it first.
