Some cars look better in certain colours, and I think that's very true of the 924T. Some of my favourite colours are shown below. The dark blue I think lends itself perfectly to the car (needs the rubbing strips putting on though!). What's your favourite?

Its always the one you dont have :lol:
I've had a minerva blue 924, lovely colour indeed.
The ones that Steve posted are fabulous also.
But for me...at least at the moment...the best colour for the 924 is Lhasa green metalic LA6V.

Garnet red metallic is also nice to look at in some light conditions but it think the green one above is just nicer.

It was this particular car, in this colour, during the visit to Stuttgart resulted in purchase of the 924 immediately upon my return home.

I think the white over red winds hands down, two of the best 924 colours on one car.

I love the two toneness of the turbo. White over red looks stunning, I really really like the white over grey (white and grey for a car shouldn’t work, but to does) and of course the two tone green (biased).
