Took a drive down to our local service center this afternoon with my wife and looked at all the cars sitting in front of the building in the sun. We saw Red, Black, Grey, Silver, Pearl White and Blue. Everything but brown and green.
We were able to get a nice look at all of them in the bright sunlight rather than on a showroom floor.
The grey was stunning. Regal. Sophisticated. Easily the best lines showing of any color. Wow did I love the grey!
The red is striking. My wife says the red is her "10". Any other color starts at "6". Ugh. I'm not a fan of red cars (look at me, look at me!) but boy is she!
The pearl white is just a lovely color. The little specs of color in there when you look closely are so nice. The car looks really clean.
Blue. Whoa. Is it black? Nope. Well, maybe it is. The blue was like the best of both worlds - black when you want it to be and blue when you want it to be.
Silver. Didn't do anything for either of us. Just wasn't to either of our liking.
Black. This was my favorite going in but my wife said it would be a nightmare to maintain and I'm lazy! This black car was d i r t y! It had water spots all over it and was very dusty. She was right. It also hid the lines of the car when compared with the grey and white. Ok, I'm not a fan of the black anymore. She wins that one!
So we sat there and looked at each other and I said "What'd we learn? I'm ordering a car on Monday and don't know what color!" She said if it were her decision and her car alone it would be red - hands down. I said for me it would be grey but we both feared that grey would become boring after a year. So we both pretty much liked the pearl white. The blue was awesome but would be trouble to keep clean.
Oh well, I guess I'll tell you on Monday what button I hit and then how much remorse I had 5 minutes later! How you guys made the choice I'll never know!!!!
