    My girlfriend is really pushing for the CAR, and I think I like the CAR more than the Envy Green, but the Green is so cool, so unique.

    IMHO those 2 colours are hideous. ESPECIALLY the green one, I find it disgusting. The red isn't THAT bad but I'm not big on red basses unless it's fiesta red. But then again I fnd that not too many colours suit the bongo....
    white was discontinued
    that black Carbon bongo is okay
    the blue carbon is mediocre
    I'm undecided on Lava Pearl
    The onyl one I really like is the desert gold one...
    And what happened to the stealth bongo and buttercream bongo? (are they available to purchase or were they just specials for NAAM? those were actually nice...
    However I find the colours that don't suit the ray look great on the Bongo, Blue dawn, peach (even though I've never seen a peach bongo I presume it would look cool)... I'm rambling now

    If stealth or buttercream is a choice go with those,
    If not my vote goes for orange... but there's alot of orange bongo's out there....

    I am not a fan of the lava pearl really, a little too orange for me, just like the other red is a little too burgundy for me.

    I prefer the green, but in my experience, girlfriends are usually right.

    I am a disgusting person.

    I vote green unless the GF threatens to cut you off.

    I wasn't super fond of them when I first saw them. They definitely grow on you, and look much better when in use. I tried one out and was pretty floored that sealed the decision.

    Is that like "I Dig A Pony"?

    Anyway - just go somewhere else. Otherwise, you're just a troll.
