Fiji Blue is sooo over rated. I love the color, but I hate how many people have it. Just gets me kinda mad, anyone else have this problem? lol

I have a FBP FA5. Funny, when I bought the car on Memorial Day, the salesman and new car manager told me how rare a color it is. After I got mine, it seemed like most of the FG2's and FA5's that came in were FBP.

I wish it was more of a rare color. It is not overrated at all IMO. In fact, I think it is the best looking color. I went gaga when I saw it for the first time. However, I think the entire palette of colors that Honda offers for the Si are hot. I love them all.

I think what is exacerbating the situation is all the attention given to the Mugen Si. Being that it is offered only in Fiji Blue and the fact that dealers are marking it up ridiculously, there will some hostility towards the color.

I wish American Honda had chosen Taffy White for the Mugen Si. It is the color offered in Japan for the Type R and has historically been the color of choice for Honda in motorsports.

its rare IRL because the average person doesnt have the guts to get such a bold color. on here its common because we are all enthusiasts we get bold colors.

for example, hardly anyone here has ASM yet IRL its hugley popular.

Taffy White =/= Competition White.

I love my Fiji, I hardley ever see one. I think I have seen like 3, and I live in socal. On the other hand I would be pissed if I bought a NHBP, I see a million of those, after that GG is also popular around here.

i love my fiji, i get compliments all the time on it. im glad i decided on the color that i did. and ya i see them alot but i mean....its a civic. its not that rare of a car so once people see how kick ass they are, they are going to buy them. and once they see the color up close...they are going to buy it. so i agree, but whatever...just have to make urs original.
