Colour Choice : Metalic or Solid
I have booked Silky silver VXI swift on 6th June. Dealer says you have to wait till november 2nd week for the delivery. They also offered me Black color which I don't want. Also then they offered RED or Azure Grey VXI..
Now that I like Red color but it is solid not metalic. i don't have personal cover parking but open parking..Does this really make a difference? I know in open parking solid color will fad soon but practically what should be the criteria to select the solid color?

Never buy a solid coloured car (especially darkish colours) if you don't have a proper covered parking space.
Metallic paints work best for Indian conditions. Minor sratches are hidden well and they have the ability to retain their visual freshness.
Though, i don't think you should experience any colour fade as such. The newer solid paints are said to be fade proof.
While our Vtec and Innova are Metallic, the Wagon R has a solid paint and the difference is un-believable.
The Vtec looks a lot newer in comparison to the Wagon R even though the Wagon R was bought some 7 months later and has done just 14K kms compared to the Vtec's 52K kms.
If i were you, i'd rather wait, than crib about it later.

If you personally like the silver best (since thats what you booked) and its metallic, I would suggest you wait ...Novmber 2nd week is not that far.
Dont rush into something you might regret later like Shantanu says.
