I went back and forth between those 2 colors as well, ultimately settling on the blue. Mine is still on order so I can't comment on the swirls/scratches other than from what I've read. It's a dark color so it's going to show more. But when it's clean it's also going to look amazing. I know it'll take more work to keep it that way but I decided it's a car, it's going to get some scratches and unless I'm right up against the car looking for them it's not a big deal, but that's me. I think the volcano red would also show the swirls/scratches as well, maybe not as much as the blue, but certainly more than the white, silver, or gray would.
No clue on resale value, but not many people have the Volcano Red, so perhaps it's not that popular of a color so it would be a little more difficult to sell privately. If you plan on trading it in I doubt it would make any difference. Otherwise it would be pretty exclusive out there.
