    When I put my 575 up for sale, I did a bit of research on 550 and 575 price's, fortunately I had a Rosso Corsa car with Nero and Red Daytona seats and had no trouble re-selling.
    But I saw a few Verde / Tan 550's for sale and horrible Giallo 575 for sale, just wondered what everyone else thought about 550/575 colour combinations.....Gonna guess everyone thinks Grigio Titanio / Bordeaux is the best combo...

    Put up a poll to try and make it a bit easier ?

    Grigio/bordeaux is lovely actually, but I guess it's probably second or third choice for most after blue/tan so it's not doing very well so far!

    I voted titanium on red/bordeaux.
    TDF on tan is a close second, though.

    In my opinion, the best colour any Ferrari can come in.

    G Titanio / Bord is nice to look at but a problem to resell.

    A Verde Mugello/black 550 sat for sale here in LA (with a stop at every dealer) for three years and never sold. It was a nice car with lots of options.

    Why do you thing red is referred to as "Resale" red?

    I personally feel the 550/575 looks best in darker exterior colours, for me it would either be black or a blue variant. That being said, it also looks very nice in silver or red.
    The only colour I dislike on the 550/575 is yellow, along with the lines and shape of the car, its too much like a very large banana! Please dont take offense giallo owners...colour is always a subjective preference thing...

    I have to admit surprise at black not being higher in the standings at this point in the poll...after reading a ton of posts regarding the 550 prior to my purchasing one, it seemed to get the most "drool factor" of any colour for that model type.....

    Where is Pozzi?

    My votes: Black/black, and pozzi/crema (w/ dark blue dash / daytona inserts).

    Am I biased? :D

    Dont know how many in that combo were made. Would love to know.

    Got the shields on the 355 but we've not taken the plunge on the 550 - yet. Sort of like the originality of it.

    Had 'em on my 575, I think they look the mutts nuts on the long sleek wings of these cars,

    http://www.ferrarichat.com/forum/showthread.php?t=70152

    I'll see what I can find out about the numbers of Tdf/Bord 550's produced for you ?

    That'd be nice. How many crema/lemans 355 spyders would be a bonus too!!

    Grigio Titanio over charcoal or black. Had both. Daytona inserts needed as doors pretty plain. Had red inserts in black, have black inserts in charcoal.
    Stealthy, and it doesn't show dirt like black/dk blue does on a driver.
    I'll refrain from posting a certain Pozzi car now... :D

    I go for Pozzi / Bordeaux - but then I am biased.
