I don't like it at all! It looks like a Con Edison Sky! Midnight Blue, Carbon Flash, and Ruby Red are way nicer!

Thanks! Too bad you didn't grab me by the arm and drag my sorry ass over there! Would have love to have seen those..Guess I was too busy drooling over the 2010 Sol Coupe GXP in Kinetic Blue inside or waiting to get my hood taken care of in the TLC line.

Mucho gracias for posting them!

Interesting. That's a nice word for it!

The thing that really bugs me about the Hydro Blue SE (and the other Special Editions) is the Hitler 'stache on the front bumper. It's not as bad on Ruby Red because there's less contrast between the colors, but the way it's on there with nothing on the top of the bumper really irks me. I looked into doing something about mine, but the best solution seems to be taking the whole front stripe (which I otherwise love) off and starting over.

Reed-
Your Ruby Red is the ONLY one I like with the stripe....on your color it actually makes the color *sharper*....that hydro blue is just too flashy....but, this is only the opinion of someone who likes flat paint! LOL

Not that it matters, but I wonder how well that color hides the dirt? I wash my car about once a month, but I know other people are not (and some are more) religious about it.

The dealer I bought my car from has one and it is a 5 speed.
I didn't check the price tag as I was blown away by how awesome it looked.

I'm personally not a big fan of racing stripes but I thought that it looked pretty hot on the Hyrdo Blue. Since my '08 Bluestone is a lemon and they no longer make Bluestone, I think that this is a great alternative.

I just wish that it came with a rear deck spoiler. For me it's a must on an RL.

Would there be a way to purchase a spoiler afterward?

The dealer can order one as an Accessory
and someone, a while ago posted a 3rd party site that sells the Sky Spoiler and I believe it's pre-painted.

So it's just a matter of how much you pay to get one, but it's not an issue.

I agree about the Spoiler and I like the Stock one for it's Subtlety.
Good Luck
