Red can look great. Though I never considered it when I was looking, it was either black or white. Didn't want silver cos my previous car was silver and as you know, white is impossible to find. I think I've seen 1 white manual in the past 2 years for sale and that went in under 1 week haha! The OEM nav units aren't that great to be honest...they look terribly dated. SMG can be fun to drive, but the main reason I didn't want to go SMG was cos of the problems it has - but I'm sure you're well aware of that. There's also a lot more SMG than Manual, so you have a wider selection to choose from.
