My humble op is that the original colour is so much less of a PITA than all the nooks and crannies (engine bay, door shuts and interior) that you would otherwise have to do with a changed colour, I'd keep it unless it's hearing-aid-beige or suchlike.

I know red is a real fader (I had an orange R5 that came up red with hefty buffing) but a DA buffer is handy, even the inexpensive ones. Also, after all your trouble, I would look into putting on a graphene coating. After detailing my Modus and Combo Tour, I gave them a DIY ceramic coating and, although it's not as nice and warm as a wax, they did their job well, even in Malaga sun. The advantage of graphene over silica ceramics (I'm a chemist and this sounds plausible rather than marketing BS to me) is that graphene is a better heat conductor than silica so those hotspots in the sun will spread around and dissipate better, hopefully avoiding the blisters and fading that I see all too often in Malaga.
