    Haha the only reason I am considering white is I saw a Porsche recently that was white with red calipers and loved it. Itís not a Porsche, but in person the red and black on white does look nice.

    Does it bother you to know they are still there but you just canít see them on the white?

    Sure, a little bit but this paint is interesting. You really have to look for them even in sunlight. It's a white pearl metallic and after posting that I went and looked with a light close up to make sure I wasn't lying... very hard to find them from just about any angle I'm looking.

    On the contrary, any other vehicle I've owned it's pretty easy to find the imperfections whether it's my paint correction light or natural sunlight.

    Yeah my black car is very easy to find defects. I keep it pretty mint so I donít really see them day to day looking it. Itís more when I wash it or get the light out and look for things.

    Hmmm so I actually like the white in this car, but I like the grey a tiny bit more. But is it worth sacrificing that for a much easier car to maintain. I just find that white doesnít pop the same for me.

    Depends how much you like detailing. Dark grey or white

    I don't think you'll go wrong with either in this case!
