generally BRP looks sexier since it's darker. And it absolutely o3ns all colors at night.. Only thing is that it is a real biatch to keep clean. you see every single flaw (key marks, white spots, chips, etc.) in your car if you look closely and dust collects on it no matter if you garage it or not. Personally, if I could buy my car all over again, i'd get white cuz it looks nice and u don't have to clean it as much.

here's a recent thread on color...

I think whatever year you decide to get will be the determining factor. As in '00 and '01 would be BRP, and '99 and older would be RBP. Well AFAIK...

Yeah I already know about that but I dont think theres any differences between 99 and 00 models so the main factor is the color ~...unless it has been proven that either model is better than the other one

You don't get the limited slip in the 1999 model...so that might help make your decision.

It affected mine!! ;)

I prefer the BRP, but hey...I have one..so I am a bit biased!!!

99 is a MAF based engine, and the 00 and up are MAP based. And I dont think the 99s are OBDII based, but the 00s and up are. And like Rallychic said the 99 doesn't have the rear LSD.

All cars 96 and up should be OBDII. A MAF responds better to most mods, but a MAP system is simpler.

keep in mind that 00+ have a higher compression ratio than 99s, and a little less turbo-friendly.

RBP hands down... BRP is by far the most abundant color in the RS's existence... if you go to a big meet, they outnumber everything at least 2 to 1

I still have no idea what i am looking for in an RS. I know i want 4 door, but then again, it looks like everyone has a 2 door. Are there any advantages to having a 2 door over a 4 door? And what are people`s favorite color?

The BRP is very pretty....;)
