    White sri turbo?

    Opinions please, i own a saphire black sri turbo with jet black turbo wheels, Im considering respraying the complete car in vauxhalls Glacier white

    Now i personally have never seen a white z20let mk4 astra and was thinking that it would look nice, however im thinking that when it comes to selling the car in the future this could make it hard to sell as it isnt origional and may put people off

    So would you or wouldnt you?

    its like any front wheel drive with a reasonably high amount of power,wheelspins untill you get off the mark then it grips and goes

    However im a painter by trade and was going to respray the front end of the car due to stone chips but pictured the car in white as i think black is a pain in the arse when it comes to cleaning and also shows up every stone chip and imperfection caused by everyday use.
