some people just don't have taste what so ever. silver is the dullest paint job on the market.

that's funny. the DuPont study says white is number 1 color (but it breaks up silver and grey and counts them as two separate colors). just goes to show how statistics can be manipulated to show what people want you to see.

I was torn between a Silver and a Black G5..the Silver had a sun roof and cruise control but cost more. I should have went with the Silver..I miss cruise control and it would have been easier to clean.

White has Silver beat in the boring/dull department

I think many people ascribe to the idea that bright colors (like red) are 'Cop Magnets' and go with neutral colors like silver and gray in hopes of avoiding unwanted attention.

And I'm sure there are a bunch of folks who think you have no taste in your choice of color but are a bit more tactful and leave it alone.
