You are absolutely right. I just came back from the dealer...we've got some sun shining today. They had both colors on the lot.

I will have to sacrifice a little extra elbow grease in the winter months for what suits the SUV better...BLACK.

There is my decision...it is made and I will not change it... (sure I won't... but it's final now)

I went with Black for the following reasons. Notwithstanding you can get away from a little grime a bit better with non-black, but when that thing is polished up with all the aluminum, shiny grille, aluminum roof racks, MAN IT LOOKS GOOD. I found that it also suits the edgy body design better, especially with the 20" tires ...the car just pops and glistens more in black as it gains better contrast with the aluminum....now only if they had the darn black wood option for interior trim! So I went with the brushed aluminum interior trim....the wood trim offerred just clashes too much I feel with the interior.

I want to sincerely thank everyone who has contributed to this thread....can't wait to get the vehicle.....albeit at the end of December! But heck, my current lease doesn't need to go back until Jan 14 anyways.
