Exclamation Black or White?

Hey guys,
I'm in Canada and I've ordered a black 2009 C230 last week. It will be a November delivery so I have time until the end of this month to make changes to my order and I have decided to go for the C300 instead. The only problem that remains is that I cannot choose between the colours. After looking at all the pictures that were posted here and seeing the car in both colours at the dealership I find myself stuck in-between and not able to lean towards one or another. Therefore, I would like to have your opinions and input to help me decide on which colour to choose. I am also aware that it will be more difficult to keep the black one clean. I would like to hear from owners of the black one if you are satisfied with your choice. For further information, I am 20 years old and would like it to look "sporty" but also maintain its class. The only modification I will be making is tinting the windows (35% tint).

Thanks,

0marX

personally, I like white...especially with a pano roof or blacked out roof if you don't go with pano. Black has it's charm, but since you're not going to be murdering it out, I'd suggest white.

I'm on my 5th black car. It's easy to buy a new car for me. As soon as I step into the dealer, Do you have this in black?

opinion.. looks great when clean. if you find it rewarding to wash and clean your car every 2-weeks or after it rains, then black is great. the chrome gives good contrast around the car.

Both are great colors. I went with black even though I wanted white all along. And now if I had to choose again, I would have picked black right from the start. I had a white and a black car before. Loved both, then went to a blue or what infiniti called it lakeshore slate. I was really set on a white C300 sport for a few months, then when I saw the black at the dealership, I just know I want it. I would recommend going to see both in personal, side by side if you can.

I did that and it's just so hard to decide. I LOVE the black but the white is really sexy. I think I'll go with my initial choice and stick with the black.

Now my next question, should I get solid black or metallic?

i agree with this statement. black looks great when it is clean, nothing turns heads quite like it. and, it is a great contrast to all the chrome.
