Black is not for you. Neither is white. Go with a silver type color as you mentioned above.

Personally I like the car in White but since it looks like you are only interested in Black or Silver...I would go with Silver. I've had both colors...my current car is Black, my last Silver. Black looks so much better but is a lot more work to keep looking clean.

Silver will look cleaner longer if you don't have the time to detail regularly

Horisont Blue is very nice.

I love them both, but bought a silver CL500 because of my 900ft gravel driveway... black would have been a BAAAD thing! If I didn't mind the detail time, I would've bought black.

I was at the Manhattan dealer a few weeks ago which had one of every color on the showroom floor. I really liked the Jade Green and Capri Blue. They really stand out from the hundreds of silver/black/white cars that we see.

Of course I have a pair of Bornite and Violet 500Es.


Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.
