Hmm....thanks moneyB. I still think grey is best, but I do appreciate the realistic view. Who knows, by the time I place my order I may even change my mind. ;)

Yeah. It does look pretty good realistically too. But so you can tell the difference. Here's a video of it all polished and waxed(showroom style).

Thanks for the sending the flipside. I guess the thing I have to keep in mind is that I live in Illinois - one of the few states that use salt to manage the snow and ice. Dull and dirty is what most cars are in this area for several months out of the year. Perhaps if I lived in SoCal, I could consider some of the other colors like the white. I guess I have to be a little practical.

Nice to know that women can fit nicely in the back seat.

Man that color does look great! The rims look good too :). Hmmn, hard to decide between Mountain Grey and Red now. I would have to see the Red in person...

I really don't like those rims in black.

The Mountain Grey looks great but I'm really over all of the grey cars on the road...and in my garage. Bubble, I wouldn't worry about the color in Winter. Roads in New England are the same way during the Winter. Get the color you like and don't fret about the haze that overcomes car colors in the snow.

I really want to like one of the reds. The Patagonia Red I've seen in recent pictures looks much better than I previously thought it would but it still might have too much blue in it. Jupiter Red looks very orangey in some of the non-glamore shots I've seen. Silver looks great but it might as well be grey. I'm too anal to live with a black car so it doesn't matter how great it looks, the dust and dirt would drive me nuts in all four seasons. lol.

Okay, that settles it. I have no clue what color to get.
