Is brown bad ??

Post by Bladerider » Sun Jul 23, 2017 4:52 pm

Im curious for peoples opinions...

Would buying a brown R8v10 equate to financial suicide come resale time in a couple of years ??

I have seen a couple for sale recently and I think they just look awesome :bash:

Brown?

Certainly a limited market and will undoubtedly be tricky to move on.

The biggest problem with that brown is the black roof, black and brown don't sit well together.

It's personal taste, for me it's financial suicide. If you like it someone else will come sale time, just a few less people.

Not the greatest choice,...but you only live once. I am sure it will sell if it has all the boxes ticked like history, condition etc.
