Arctic white vs. diamond white metallic

Hi. I was wondering who may have experience with both colors. Is the diamond white more durable, or just flashier? In other words, what are you getting for the $1500 upcharge?
Thanks,

Mark

I did own arctic white and lowed it in hot weather. Would like to see the white metallic as I don't think I have seen one.

While they are both white, the diamond white is a richer, deeper color that I would pay extra for. The arctic white is a very plain stark color.

Even $1500 looks like a lot for just paint upgrade, if the above is true it is worth IMHO as it will make the car standing up from the crowd and you will enjoy it for the years to come.
Comparing to the price of vehicle it is not big %
