I've been visiting the local car lot on Sundays and checking out the different colors. I currently like the Winning Blue, Titanium Gray, and Velocity Red. If I keep it as long as my current car I'll have it 10+ years and was curious if there is any difference between metallic paint and mica paint in the long run. Does one fade faster than another. I wax 1-2 times a year, for those 3 colors in general are any known to fade faster than the others over time. Thanks.

Colors

I not sure about the Mica vs. Metallic but darker colors tend to fade faster. I've got a Ti-Grey Hatchback. It seemed like a good compromise between light and dark colors...

I think Mica is more or less Metallic. They look the same, though Mica on the Mazda seem to have larger flakes than the typical Metallic paint.

What I really like is pearl paint... the only way I would ever consider a white car.
