What other colors were made available from the factory for gen 1's for other countries? They didn't have the same, citrus, silver, red and dark blue only. The reason I'm asking is I saw a car in what appeared to be a very nice medium blue.

That's the one! Oxygen Blue or Auqa Marine Blue Metallic. For 2000 and 01 only and outside the U.S. Any idea on how many were made in that color? It's the first time I've seen it! Is that color scarer than the citrus? I'm assuming it would be, as I've never seen one, even on the web! Is there any source telling paint code production numbers thru the 00-06 years (not only in U.S., but also Japan, Canada, and Europe?) Or at least educated guesses?

Interesting. In Wilmington, NC. I have seen Red, dark Blue, Silver, Citrus (mine) and what I thought was a black one. But, the above list called that Quantum Grey Metallic. Sure looked solid black like the picture...
Just curious how you know this (about this particular color being common in the UK and Canada? I just want to pick your brain a little further, and know all you know about it!) I would hope some our UK and Canadian diehard bothers could give us some "insight" into the rarity scale of colors from cars they see the most often, to least often in their respective countries...
Is it true Honda never kept any records of production numbers of different colors for different countries? Thanks again!

The grass is always greener (pun intended) - I like the gloss of the American dark blue colour! In the UK there is a reasonably even split between silver, light blue and citrus. There are less red coloured and possibly only two in black.
