Question is how does the red paint on the z's hold up, yes it will be in Garage 90% of the time but just wondering before I pull the trigger on my dream car.
I have the red and it is beautiful. Fading has not been the problem. Problem is the paint seems to be thin and chips very easily. Rather than pain protection, spend for a ClearBra like I did. Get it immediately upon purchase and protect the front end and bumper from nicks and chips. The ClearBra will help a lot. My red Z is 18 months old and looks perfect. Red is no better or worse than any other color in this respect. The Z is beautiful in red.
