Orange should get a big positive response, it actually looks good and doesn't seem to be the sort of color typically offered throughout the industry. Take rate at the end of the year is what i'll be interested in.

Ya know what would be kinda cool!.. all black. I realize it's getting kinda overdone and going to be the hot pink parachute pants of the 20-teens but flat black would be kinda neet! the more I look at mine.. especially when its all muddy, it looks like a military vehicle.. that front end makes it look even wider than it is .. reminds me of a hummer just a little.. a real hummer not those H2 / H3 things. you could even make it desert camo.. though that would certainly look cool for a custom job it'd be getting a little carried away for a factory option.

While it might seem to be overdone, I think it all depends on how someone pulls it off, just has to be done right. Might to be time to hunt for examples.

Matte black would look great! Will look even better with a hint of dirt here and there to complete it.

Only problem with matte black is that it would scratch up like no one's business fast and not hide it at all

That's a good point, i've noticed that with some vehicles. Matte black is usually best to cars that stick mostly to clean roads. See them a lot in the city.

Might there be some type of paint protector you could put on to preserve it? Or would that not work with the matte finish?
