Either Blue Flame from the regular Corolla or some form of the Solar Shift Orange on the new GR86 model.

I really like the Morizo satin gray I would prefer satin black but yeah I don't mind getting a paintjob. I will probably have to get the rear diffuser and grill + front vents painted gloss black on the core to match the circuit.

I'd have to go with a light, matte blue. I do like blue flame on corollas, but in my eyes that color is the Focus RS. Kinda like royal blue with STIs.

Toyota put this color on the last year of the FJ, the 2014 trail teams edition (heritage blue) and it was a limited color on TRD models (cavalry blue). I think it looks most superb on the AMG GTR, and the GRC would pull it off well.

The color itself looks good, but the name "Cavalry" Blue drives me nuts. It should be Infantry Blue; Cav's branch color is yellow for crying out loud! As a former Infantryman, I would hate to be associated with those stetson and spur wearing weirdos.

But in all seriousness, I don't actually have anything against Cav boys and I understand why Toyota marketing went with "Cavalry Blue" over "Infantry Blue," it's more recognizable.

Agreed. They called it heritage on the FJ cause it was a retro spec with the white grille, but they could have easily carried "heritage blue" to the TRD line which I enjoy more. But, cavalry it is :LOL:
