No Solar Yellow :(

Not really a fan of any of the colors, but must admit the Blue Onyx looked impressive in person. Leaning toward that one. Though for some reason the Matador Red is growing on me. I have never had a red car before so who knows.

Here is a shot of the Blue Onyx

And from those two, how do you decide? Onyx looks the best when clean, but SGM is just a little different, something a bit more unique than black, but still darker than the commonly seen "silverstone"... I suppose onyx may be just a BIT more difficult to maintian than the SGM?

I used to think red was good for one make of car...think F430 or Enzo.. but I agree the red is growing on me.

Won't know untill I see a Smokey Granite in person... hopefully it's darker than the current GGP that I have. Can anyone who's seen one in person comment?

Black and Blue Onyx are my other choices.

I have, it almost looks black. I was not too thrilled with the color though, kinda looked as if it was a black car, but dirty.

Attached is a pic I took of the Black Onyx and the SGM side by side at the NY Press event we attended.

Awesome, Thanks!

I know exactly what you mean about the car feeling dirty. Sometimes I feel my GGP looks like faded Black paint. It will be a tough choice.

My only concern about Black is that I'm afriad the lack of color will absorb all those subtle styling cues I keep hearing about. Did they seem any more noticeable to you on the SGM?

That and it's a part time job to keep it clean. ;-)
