All I can say is that personally, I'd avoid black. Black looks amazing when it's clean, but shows any dirt, or even dust from just sitting in the garage...

UW with Cab is definitely my favorite. Then NG with Cab or LP with Cab. Then any of these with Flax. I'd avoid OB too. The upkeep is a second career lol.

Well so far Ultra White with Flaxen seems to be in the lead.
Question for you all. Putting aside that black is hard to keep clean ( which I have done for years on my previous car ) would you still pick Ultra White over Black. I have always thought Black was very manly, bold and sexy looking in a car.
Your thoughts ???

Welcome to CL.....I see you are virtually a brand-new poster.

IMO, avoid black. It's very difficult to keep clean, shows every tiny smudge/tint/scratch, soaks up heat in the summer sun like an oven, and, in many cases, shows more orange-peel in the texture than other colors. The only time black is beneficial, IMO, is in the wintertime when you have ice/snow on the car, the sun is shining, and you are trying to clean or melt the ice off...it soaks up some heat and makes that job a little easier. But most of the time, I'd avoid black.

I'm biased for Obsidian, but my choice would be either Obsidian or Ultra White both with Cabernet

black is more manly than white? LOL whatever floats your boat.....

I think white is more high tech and cleaning looking
