    Hi Guys,

    I'm looking to purchase a new MK7 Ford Fiesta St, however I can't decide on the colour (seriously looking into the blue, white or black)

    What colour/tips do you have? Any advice on which colour you prefer etc?

    Any advice/tips/opinions are highly grateful from myself :)

    Have you ever owned a Black car? Do you know how much work they are to keep clean? ... You can't get the same gleam from any other finish as you can with black. They show every highlight and flaw as well. White cars are surprisingly easier to keep clean, but won't have the luster. They will blend into the crowd and make the car all but invisible as there are sooooo many other white cars out there.
    Are you an extrovert and want to be seen by everyone? Red of course, but there are also lots of red cars. Orange and Green stand out from the pack. Sliver (my choice) blends in with all the other silver cars out there (as does white) but I want to escape notice most especially that of the constabulary. I do love the Blue. A dark color so it will buff up but not so finicky to keep nice as Black, it will disappear into the crowd in the dark, and not SHINE out during the day.

    I have owned a black car, as well as a blue car. Black fiesta's are uncommon hence why i was looking at the black version, However my eyes are more on the blue. I actually dont like the fiesta in red, its how to put it? Not to my personal taste.

    I'm in the Uk, green is perferred on the focus RS. Havent actually seen a green St here. That is probably one to look at, or wrapping it? Not entirely sure though.

    In my personal opinion, the Fiesta ST is a car that should automatically stand out from the crowd. The best way to do that is to get it in a color that does stand out. The orange, green, or red are best for that. I'm not sure what colors the ST comes in in the UK, but they dropped the green for 2016 in the US.

    Of the 3 color options you gave I'd go with blue. White or black (and silver) are pretty boring and blend in with the millions of other white, black, or silver cars on the road being the 3 most common colors. I have owned a black car and currently own a dark blue car. Both of them are impossible to keep clean for more than a couple hours. White is not a deep color, though it is slightly easier to keep clean.

    I personally ordered mine in orange because the color is awesome, looks great, and has a deep look to it because of the metallic flake.

    I went with black but the other colors you mentioned were in my top 3 of choices. The metallic flake on the tuxedo black is just gorgeous.

    Can't go wrong with any color FiST but the blue ones are the quickest I'm told LOL Black is hard to keep clean like any dark color white is hard to keep clean like any lighter color other than Grey or Silver but Blue is a DIRT magnet like the other two colors so Buy what you like and enjoy it.. I got a thing for blue but was close to getting MO or Black and I have seen the black up close and it does POP metalic sparkle in the right light..

    It should be noted however that the metallic flake is missing on the MY'16 Shadow Black paint.

    But like Rod said just buy what you want, I ended up in TB because it was what was available.

    There's another thread on this forum which people have voted their favorite FiST colors, Molten Orange was in 1st place, Performance Blue was second and I think Black and some of the other colors where in 3rd but their scores were close together. I have a blue FiST and love it, its a bit of unique looking blue and if its good enough for Top Gear then thats the color I chose.

    I had a choice between green and red. I went with the green once I saw it in person. I have always owned white or gray cars. I really like my green, I get a lot of shit about the color but I think it's awesome. So like everyone else said, pick the color you want.
