I've been thinking long and hard about this and I wanted to get people's feedback on this. I currently have an order in for deep blue metallic + cream leather with a light headliner. I have been debating PPF and ceramic coating, but I honestly don't care about preserving the paint of the car to increase resale value (I do somewhat care about making sure the car doesn't look terrible with dirt and scratches though). What I care about is ease of cleaning, and I've found products like Chemical Guys EcoSmart RU that would allow me to clean the car in my garage by using a bunch of microfiber towels and a spray bottle. (We can debate in another thread if that actually causes paint damage. I believe the answer is no, IF done properly) My main concern is the darkness of the deep blue metallic. I think that if I keep the blue, I'm almost compelled* to do a full body wrap so my FWDs and the rest of the car don't show marks like rock chips (people keying my car, in the off chance that happens), door dings (happens way too frequently), etc. However, I have a hard time really justifying the extra 5-7k for a wrap + ceramic coating (if I choose to coat on top). * I don't really need to. I could not wrap it or protect it, but every single scratch/chip/dirt/blemish may show. Another possibly downside of blue is that it's a darker color, and some people (not a majority) have reported sensor malfunction issues with darker colored cars more than light colored cars. That isn't necessarily true, and that I acknowledge that's almost certainly FUD, but it's just another reason why it may not be a good option. Should I just pay the $500 and change to silver metallic? It's a more muted color, doesn't draw attention, has no color pop, but is just safer. It doesn't show dirt much, it hides scratches and chips and generally provides a cooler car for texas summers. I'm not really representing the argument fully right now, but I think I've gotten most of my concerns across. What would you do? Just keep the blue because what the heck, it's a car and who cares if it shows scratches and chips more? Go with silver because there might be a multitude of reasons (both visual and technical) that it might be a safer pick? What do you guys think of silver + cream combination? Is that even decent-looking? Be curious to get your thoughts! Thanks in advance!
