If it would make you uncomfortable to run a blue top in your car, don't do it.
I picked a blue top because they were the same price and same exact specs as the top post only red top. I maybe would have bought the red top but i also wanted the top studs with the top posts featured on the blue top. My opinion is a lot of marine stuff is heavier duty because they should be designed with a lot of pounding from wave to wave in mind. I also have a marine tach in the car mainly because I liked the plain white face.

Both $123.99 from Summit. Since I also had to order some other stuff and shipping cost only their standard flat rate packaging charge for the whole three package order it was the best deal on the Optima I found.
