I thought yellow was the lightest paint.
My dad is an automotive painter and he has always said this.
White paint is usually thick and opaque. it covers most colors pretty good.
Yellow on the other hand doesn't cover anything. Any slight change in the base color will show through on yellow paint.

But in any case, your only saving a few grams at most. Theres no way that different color paint would net even a pound of weight savings, so its really irrelevant.
I never knew Yellow was lightest :rolleye:

OK for weight.

No for racing...........white and black in compare, the engine room temperature differs at least 10 degree

Hi all, I'm new here. i am interested in the genesis coupe. I am leaning towards the 3.8 GT in Mirabeau Blue; however, i'm not sure how it looks compared to its photos and how it looks with the manditory brown? i went to 2 dealer so far and neither of them had this model or color.

while i haven't seen the brown leather as its an american only feature, i can tell you with certainty that the exterior color is gorgeous!
I saw one in the lot a couple weeks ago. It had just rained the day before and the cars hadn't been wiped off yet.
Unless you looked real close, the dust on the blue was not apparent. It was the best looking of all the colors once dirty.
Also, when its clean, the color just shines amazingly in the sun.

as for the brown interior, I really like that color. Brown contrasts amazingly against the vibrant Mirabeau blue.
Here's the best example i could find.

The whitet with a little carbon and some bronze wheels will look sweet in my opinion. I'm waiting on the white R-SPEC

I am pretty sure every car I own will be black. Red leather interior is my favorite but I cant afford that just yet in my cars. If you have ever seen a black BMW/GTO with red leather interior, it looks SICK.

I think black is hard to keep clean, but there is nothing better looking then a black car right after you detail it.

I got black. Needs to be washed at least 2x a week. Wish I woulda gone with white. White w/ dark tint and black complimentary accessories I think would look hot.

+1. If the dealer would have had White, I probably would have had one hell of a time deciding. But since they only had Black, I got it. Sometimes I wonder if I should've waited.. but.. I still have the car and I'm damn happy with it. :shifting: :dunno:

Yeah I know the feeling. It's starting to get the look I want and most definitely happy with the ride. Just kinda bummed how the black shows everything. I got off work yesterday, came home was working on dinner and while it simmered ran out to wash. Today I have dust all over it. Think I need a spot away from all the bushes and trees. But where it’s parked all day is safe from other cars and people walking with bags n stuff. Just after 9, I’m tired, gotta be up early but I may just go for a drive!

Yes I was surprised by how bad it shows off everything. My car is filthy filthy with dust right now :(

My last car was black & my bro's GenCoupe is black, so I went for the red & haven't washed it yet. Hell I didn't even let them wash it at the dealership during delivery, don't trust anyone else to touch my car. But I must say, considering I've had the car almost 2 months, it doesn't look that dirty. I feel for those of you that have black, been there / done that & more power to you, because your going to need it for all those washes...LoL

P.S It is hard to make a car look better than black when it is blinging clean.

Well My eclipse was RED (BRIGHT) and then my Tib was orignally Carbon Matallic grey then added the two-tone Chill pepper red on top to match the interior and left it carbon grey on bottom and now i drive my black GC...


Tufast i wish i could go without washing mine.. i probably washed it about 10times now even with all the rain and snow.

but i do agree with you not just because i own a black car but when a black car is washed and waxed boy does it shin!
