Re: What color

If I was to get a 9th gen, it would have to be that pearlescent white colour (not sure of the actual name of it).

Did think white, but I work in a steel company so there is dust and all sorts in the air? I could always cover the car

The color is a sign of your taste.

I would go black to show them curves off.

Sorry you don't convince me
I had a black '10 lancer ralliart and while it looked great newly washed and waxed it annoyed me how easy I found the smallest scratches.
The metallic black ones have a tendancy to look grayish in some angles too.
Also when you take it for a spin, 1 min after, the road dust is already apparent.
Atleast for me, white is as good to look at and looks cleaner most of the time.

I like black cars, but it does disguise the shape of the car somewhat. You want a light colour to show off the curves.

I went Urban Titanium to semi-hide the road dirt

Shame they discontinued Galaxy Grey as that still looked clean when it was dirty
