Red candy or performance white

This is going to be my first mustang ever and I'm extremely excited I've been wanting to buy a stang since I got my license but my only problem is that I can't decide between red candy and performance white. The thing is the red looks really fierce but the white looks sleek. What do you guys think?

I'm partial to the white color as you can see from my profile. I think white looks clean and fresh but red is aggressive. I say white

I'd pick the white out pf the two, but I have a white mustang and Tahoe and wouldn't buy one again. Every scratch and ding sticks out.

I was going to get GB but they only had it on the v6s so I narrowed it down to these two on the GTs and I'm leaning towards the red because of how the saddle interior looks with it. By the way, thanks for your guys's Input this is my first post on this forum and it seems like a really nice community

I get at least 1 compliment a week, sometimes multiple, on RC. It's indescribably better in person. I'm not a red Mustang kind of guy but, I saw this and was won over instantly.

Re: Red candy or performance white

i would not want a car that has front lic plate holes drilled in it.... there are other ways to do it that do not require that or hopefully you dont have to run one of the ugly things at all.....

with all that said I would recommend looking at them modded, that changes EVERYTHING. See which one ends up where you like it with some mods (wheels/tires/body kit/etc etc)

White with blue stripes down the middle. I know it's not a choice, but I would suggest it.

Re: Red candy or performance white

I think you should go with what you want...don't listen to us...you are going to drive it for a long time...but if you need more input, go with the Red, love the saddle interior...unique for sure.

Red candy with black stripe. I love the look of the red candy and the metallic flake. Just too many white cars to blend in with. Check out my pics in the garage.

I believe in the end, after all the mods u will put on it, white will destroy the red. There are just SO many clean looks u can go for with white. With red u almost have to make black or white the other color, with very few exceptions.

I agree with with white being a much easier color to be creative on... I love my red, but only limited to black or white on accents

If you really wanted grabber blue at first, order one. It will be well worth the wait. If you get the candy red or white, there is always going to be a small part of you that wishes you had the grabber blue you wanted. Good luck, i know its a tough call...

Blue would be a good accent. LOL Possibly Gray...

White is like black, its a pain to clean but when its clean there is no color that looks any better. I had a red 05 tacoma n it was my fav color car though. Always stayed clean, theres pros and cons but id say white.

Ended up getting white because I thought it was the better choice or mods. I've only driven this car for two days and It might be too early to say this but I love this car. Everything from the comfort in the seats to the power in the engine was just done right and I feel like it was well worth the wait. I expect many great years to come with my new stang. By the way, thank you guys for all the opinions, it really did help with my decision
