I just can't decide!

Ok i know many of us have said our preference before, but i can't help but get some more opinions...

My stepdad has just told me to choose a colour for our BA XR6. I can choose white, narooma blue, or maybe black- if i can persuade him to get try it.

Have NO idea which one to choose. Personally, i think the blue makes the car look less sporty (don't know why).
The white looks damn nice, except white is still WHITE.
And black, well...i reckon a black XR8 looks sick, but not sure about the XR6- hard to keep clean too.

What do you reckon?

with those options, i would go white.

the car i originally test drove was white, and the XR looks Euro CLASSY in white.

Was my second choice after blueprint, with phantom a close 3rd

Phantom for sure! Or Mercury Silver. What about Blood orange?

No - definitely Mercury Silver. It's not as plain as white, not as hard to keep clean as black and still looks classy! (Plus it goes well with the colour of the alloys).

Black is a great color, but unless your willing to spend at least 400 a month in cut and polishes :( then go the white

White. White Xrs are the best. I saw one a few weeks ago, and I just sat there and gawked. Great colour.

Hey dude,
Go with Meteorite i think its one of the Classiest colours in the range.
Looks awsome on the XR aswell, very easy colour to keep as its not as bad as Black and looks better than white.
