    Default Yellow Car...high laser reflection?

    I know that silver cars reflect laser really well, but how about yellow cars? I'm planning on buying a Subaru WRX end of this month, but I don't want it in it's signature blue...it seems like everyone has one in blue, and red just draws too much cop attention and raises insurance. So a yellow car...how bad will it be?

    Dillip seems to get good results with his yellow Mazda. Check out his thread in the VEIL section. According to Veil Guy it seems that shape is more important than color.

    Lol...does that mean yes, yellow would be a bad choice? From your user image it seems you have a yellow car. What's your experience with it?

    OK blue is not stealthy enough so you want YELLOW?!



    I agree with the blue, I think it sucks How about a nice black or grey?

    Yeah, I agree with you...the only problem is that grey is probably pretty reflective, and black...I live in Miami. The inside of the car is going to turn into an oven. :-p

    Couple of days ago I saw a super yellow sports car with super yellow plate covers (front and back) AND some very funny personalized plates: NO LEMON... I think the guy's life is all covered in yellow

    Hey there!

    I have a yellow mazda 6, with veil and lasershield, i seem to be able to get protected from laser if the targeting officer is over 500 feet away. Shape is also an important factor.

    But yellow colour is very eye catching and it's very easy for a cop to spot you out in a crowd. I got ticketed once for "overtaking int he slow lane" and the cop was sooooo far behind so many other cars that he still saw me do it because of the colour.
