Whether 'tis nobler in the single colour, or to relive the days of old...

What are people's thoughts, because we're have a terrible time trying to make up our minds!

Still grappling with it. Fully intended to do the matt black on white...and would probably have ordered it that way except the only way to get that look in Aus (at the moment) is with an aftermarket wrap. Now we've got it in white (with the red Launch Edition highlights), we kinda think we may leave it that way.

If you're young and you're going to add accessories to make it more sporty, go two tones. Otherwise one tone.

60 and over one tone, Leave those memorable youth years behind you. LMAO

The only thing I plan to do is a muffler delete.

The nice thing about the two tone, since it's a dealer or after market add-on, you can always try it first without and then add later if you decide.

If undecided, you could always wrap the front and leave the back alone. Half-and-half. Or, just wait until you get a few hood dings, and then do a wrap to hide them.

The matte Heritage stripe look really nice, but I'm going clean with mine. The stripe sort of pigeonholes the look, and calls too much attention... sometimes it's nice to go stealth.

We had partially wrapped our BRZ S and you're right, it brought the wrong kind of attention.

It's actually part of the reason we decided to sell the car; I was sick of always being tailgated and raced from the lights (usually by 20 somethings in their eBay performance parts pieces of garbage).

As much as we like both we're now starting to think the two tone will do the same to the 124... :(

Out of curiosity, why do you say that?
I now have to use Turtle Wax Ice, to keep it deep black. I'm sure the paint on these cars is probably better, but flat/matte black really shows every nick, scratch, accidental swirl you name it. I can fix this myself, however I wouldn't want to on a $2k option, I would rather go with a wrap then paint.
