Just got an R allocation for my wife... She's trying to decide on the color combo. What do you all say??

1. Lead Foot Grey with black/red stripes
2. Kona Blue with black/red stripes
3. White with black/red stripes

I tried to tell her either Triple Yellow or Race Red... no go. She also doesn't like the Ruby Red, Orange, or other colors for that matter.

Totally personal choice - best to take her to look at cars in person... even if not the right model.

I really, really wanted to like Orange Fury, but when time came to pull the trigger, I couldn't do it - something about the shade just doesn't work for me on the GT350.

Kona looks beautiful in sunlight, but seems to have some purple or something in it - at least to my untrained eye.

Can't go wrong with basic white - but I'd prefer Wimbledon (something with a bit of off-white to the shading).

Leadfoot is a cool color - I posted a pic of one with black stripes in the "leads" thread - but I prefer the old Avalanche color when it comes to a non-metalic greys.

I'm a big fan of the Race Red and the Ruby Red - both look awesome on the S550 body lines.

Tomster's yellow with black roof and stripes is just an awesome combo - check out his pics at Daytona with the wall and paint in the background!!!

For me, it came down to Race Red and Magnetic - in the end I went with Magnetic and the matte black stripes with red accents because I think that combo is both subtle and fresh at the same time. The red on the exterior - stripe accents, calipers, emblems - works great with the red interior accents. Plus, I sorta like the near bass boat grade of the metal flake in the Magnetic paint!!!

Good luck on the choice and with her car.

All I can tell you is to go and see the cars in person, seriously.
I was dead set on Magnetic and when I saw it in person it was a no go for me.
Looked completely different than the pics I had seen.
Go to the dealer and look through there GT's and 350's and decide that way.

She's seen most all the colors in person many times, C&C's, track, and such. Lead Foot and Orange Fury are the only colors we haven't seen in person yet. :cheers:

Defiantly go see the lead foot in person, that color changed so much from the showroom to outside. Hell, at the end of the day she gets a GT350 so you can't loose.

I see you have a Focus RS - how do you like that car?
I think its pretty sweet but have never seen one on the track or street.

The RS is surprisingly very capable on track. Funny thing... my GT350 wouldn't make it 5 laps each session while the RS was go go go the whole way through.

The downfall of my GT350 (tech) on track lead to me getting an R way quicker than I thought (from out of state). Hence a few months later my local dealer called me (this Friday) with another opportunity!

Wife is debating between Lead Foot and Kona because the RS is Stealth Grey and my R is DIB. She thought it would be "cute" if one of them matched. Which, is the reason I'm all for a white one!! haha

i love my leadfoot 350 but it looks very different than in pictures and changes wildly based on lighting. i took a flyer on it when i ordered it and luckily it paid off. i also like that it is exclusive to the 350 in the mustang lineup for 18. in the end you cant go wrong, the 350 looks great in every combo i have seen so far

Get a 1 yr only color. I like the dark, almost purple hue of Kona, IMHO.

So you convinced her to do it?!

I'd go with Kona. I've seen Lead Foot in person and it's nice, but I like Avalanche better. Plus, Kona is only a single year and it'll look pretty cool next to your DIB R.

Have her see all the colors in person, but I'd go Lead Foot Grey with black/red stripes if I were to buy another. What I've learned from being married is she needs to make that choice so she's happy and can't say you made her pick it...lol

I love the Oxford White - I went back and forth so many times on the colors.
Luckily the dealer had almost every color in either the GT or Ecoboost so that helped.
I have a white one on the way (non R) so I vote white!
