first two: white

current: silver

I chose white for those cars because i liked the interior contrast...I didn't choose silver and used to hate silver cars.  they look so generic.  my next car will be white or black.

...he thinks we like WHITE cars. However I really think that in some areas this is a better choice of color because it doesnt draw too much heat. I've been car shopping for 3 weeks and finally chose a white car. He said he knew I was going to pick that. :/

So what's the color that ur boyfriend profiled blacks as loving?


Posted By: Cream1970
Date Posted: Aug 26 2014 at 11:23pm
"Bermuda Blue Metallic"
It's a greenish blue, with a purple undertone. Tri-color, slightly iridescent metallic.A very subtle "flip flop". I chose it because even though I don't like green or blue trucks. (Never owned a car in my life, and likely never will), the colors look good mixed.

I would've preferred silver, charcoal gray, gray or even white. But they didn't have the features I wanted in those colors. I chose the color because was an upgrade, so it's not as common as the standard colors.

White/light colors may show up more mud, but black and other dark colors show more dust, scratches, scuffs. That's the biggest reason rental car companies usually have more light colored cars in their fleets, and have a minimal number of black ones.

The red car = higher insurance thing is a myth. It was thought that red will make police notice you more, so it increased the chances of you getting a ticket.

is silver the same as gray to u?   I dont really consider my charcoal gray to be silver.  I guess its like , light gray vs dark gray.  Or do u just dislike all gray cars?

Also, white cars hides scratches better than any other color car, especially darker color cars. 
 
I regret going to a dark blue car from a white car.  A lesson learned.

I guess we all have had different experiences with white and black cars.
I had a white jeep when my then hubby had a black car. Unless it rained, his car showed waaaaaay more dirt/dust/pollen/scratches/scuffs than mine. When it was freshly washed, wow! It WAS gorgeous. 3 days later, a different story.

My SO now has a white car and I have a dark colored truck. if he skips a week without washing them, my truck looks so bad that I'm too embarrassed to do valet when we go out. His car, unless you're right up on it, still looks clean.

Gotcha. I guess it's a state thing. I only spoke based upon previous experiences with Geico, Allstate, AAA, USAA, Progressive, State Farm etc, and from overhearing and helping customers secure car insurance.
But I was living in Texas, NC, LA, and IL when I sold cars so you're right, I'm not familiar with that policy in other states.
