Although having said that it depends which silver....the 147 looks really good in the bluey silver colour....can't think what its called....exept its not Sterling Grey (what I'd call silver) and not Nuvola Blue....
I wouldn't vote for these colors.
Silver is too common. Half of car at these moment are silver.
Red is nice but it doen't look good when is dirty.
If i had to choose one it would be:
mettalic red, dark blue metallic. It looks good on 147.
I also like fire black (That's the color of my 147). Eventhough it gets dirty very easy I still like it.
I believe the you have to choose the color you like by your self because it's something personal and you don't want to change your mind later.
that's my opinion. Go for the one YOU like.
We had fire black on our 156,gorgeous colour but you`ll spend every other day cleaning the car.I chose between red and silver for the Spider and red won the day and I am very happy that I chose it,because it is the classic Alfa colour and it really suits the car.My thinking was if you are going to have a car that stands out you may aswell go the whole way and get a red one!
Red is the winner by a margin of 10 to 1 and I think deep down that red is what I should have really asked for in the first place.
I think I went for silver because in most of the 147 photos (such as the book that Alfa put out) the silver is the featured car.
Red ones are faster too (at least in Australia any way!)
So, once the dealer is back from the Christmas break, I'll let him know that silver's out and red is in.
The complete spin out of all of this is - I can't believe we've actually ordered the car in the first place! It has been over 12 months since I first saw a snippet of it on BBC's 'Top Gear' and thought 'Gotta get me one of those!'
