Decisons... Also NEW!

I have been trying to decide on the color for my 09 WRX and i am stuck between Black and White.

Currently i drive a 2008 Pontiac G5 Automatic Black, Blacked out tails, Vibrant Exhaust, Sportlines, Konig Bump 17" Rims, Problem is it's slow, a pontiac and automatic.
Lastly my biggest problem is i'm a snowboarder and all winter i travel up mountains and the G5's FWD and low power doesn't quite do the trick.

i should be getting my WRX in the next Week or Two.
Just leaves me to the question shall i go White or Black? Iv'e always loved the blacked out theme on any vehicle but i also love the Black on White theme. It's a tough choice.

First thing i plan on doing is, SPT Exhaust, Complete Audio System... Waiting on Pioneer to release there new line up of In Dash Navi Cd Players. Already bought the 2 10" Kicker CVX Subs, Kicker SS 6.5" Components, Plan on getting Alpine Type-X Pro Series Components Also Hooked up to a fosgate T600-4 Amp. The Subs to a T1000-1Amp.

First thing is first, the first 3 - 7k miles will be me learning to drive the Suby. Right now i am pretty much as noob as it gets at driving standard in the first place but i'm practicing.


I'll post up some pictures of My G5 just for giggles.



Also i am very new to Turbo set-ups, looking forward to learning about them.

WHITE FTW! Black is a pain to keep clean... #1 complaint that I have about my car. Black looks the best after you wash it but it only lasts for 5 minutes. Also, I don't really have time to wash my car every week so it is pretty dirty most of the time. Get white, you won't regret it.

If you pay attention to details like I do, black is the color for you.

Do you detail your own car monthly? If so, black. If no, white.

I do detail my car close to once a month but i just think white is more eye catching and neat. I don't know though i just love black.

Thanks mosc, that's kind of what I was getting at. I forgot to mention the white part in my post though. I guess he could always split the difference and get gunmetal or silver. They all look pretty good.

black is the way to go. once a month for a wash isnt that big of a hassle. just make sure to wax it and ## set. i have my 06 wrx murdered out and i looove it. a black car on a sunny day is very eye catching.

...and a black car on a cloudy day or at night with the lights off disappears easily from the cops
