It seems like it's going to be hard to find a black one around here. I went through the same thing when I got my 02 civic. I wanted a black one, but they didn't have one. They went to another state just to get me a black 5-speed.
Black is good but scratches easy and scratches more noticeable than lighter colors like yellow. I have the black 10 and there are spider line or fine scratches all over the place. Maybe wait till 07's come out then get a killer deal on a 06. If I had to choose again I might go yellow with a black akra exhaust. That would look good.
That black is real hard to come by in my area too, way too many people have in my opinion. I bought the orange one but it will really be yellow like my 01 in about a week and a half. None of that paint it orange and tell the public it is yellow stuff bs.
I went to Midstate Motorsports yesterday and saw the "same ol same ol". One green one and one yellow (orange) one. I talked to them and they said they can get a black one if that's what I wanted. It would take them 2 days to get it. I guess I'll be going back there when I get one
Black is the only good looking 10r this year...sad but true...It would look great in the "lightning" blue that they have, but of course they decided to have yellow instead...why? i will never know...You cant go wrong with the black though, I have one, and the only complaint is that it does scratch up a little to easy...but it still is friggin awesome
