Default Ultra White vs. Nebula Gray / Which one would you choose and why?

Hey guys,

I've finally negotiated a deal and I am closing it tomorrow! I'm still debating between 2 hot colors: Ultra White or Nebula Gray Pearl. Now, the Nebula Gray Pearl is available in the lot, while the Ultra White has to be shipped from another dealer nearby who's willing to exchange cars.

This is such a tough decision, but I'll have to make tomorrow when I close the deal. Which color would you choose and why? Any input is appreciated.

I chose UW - to match my wife's white car. Also, because (IMHO) it looks cleaner and more professional.

Interesting statement - "because it looks cleaner and more professional". Being a realtor and nurse, I definitely want to look more professional driving this thing

As a fellow Realtor,my ride is Ultrasonic Blue,and I get nothing but compliments. Between your 2 choices I would go for UW,much easier to keep clean.

Ultra white because I think white is a sporty color that fits this car.

Also take a look at this http://www.wisegeek.org/why-are-white-cars-popular.htm

I have Ultra white and love the color with the Rioja Red interior...but it would be nice if every drop of water on the car didn't highlight the amount of brake dust constantly on it.

When I purchased my 2014 IS 350 AWD, I wanted it in white. Unfortunately, the only white one in stock had the tan interior (I definitely wanted black interior). While the salesman was willing to find the color combination I wanted, he pointed out that he had a Nebula Gray Pearl car equipped the same way with black interior if I wanted to take a look. I was a little concerned about how badly it would show dust/dirt, but I really like the color combination and thought I'd give it a shot. I am happy to report that it does not show dust/dirt any worse than White (I've had several white cars previously). I get sooooo many compliments on the Nebula Gray color. If I had it to do all over again, I would most definitely get the Nebula Gray Pearl.

Congrats on the deal and new car. Personally, I went with the UW because I think it suits the sporty nature of the car. Also, I had a GGP IS300 as my previous car, which is close to Nebula so I wanted a change.

Have you noticed more brake dust on your UW? Is it normal or is it above normal amount of brake dust? What areas, though? Fenders and lower rockel panels? You're worrying me LOL

I'm surprised to hear that! Nebula Gray Pearl is a very nice color, I must admit! Having seen dark gray colored cars in the family and elsewhere and how dirty they can get, I am afraid that the same thing will happen to the NGP color.

Thanks BlueIS05! I see we're in the same state! How is your 3IS treating you? Ready for our CT winters?

Why does NGP seems to be the 2nd choice for most buyers??? I was just sold when I saw the UW with RR interior.
