    Here are a few pictures from a 70D in Seattle this morning (should be at the Westlake Sales office by tomorrow.)

    I like it.

    Not a bad successor to the brown. It was between this or white for my Model X

    That looks great! Really having trouble understanding the name "Warm Silver", however. Is it just because Apple Watch Edition now has a trademark lock on every possible reference to the word "Gold"? ;)

    Marketing nixed "Tarnished Silver" (the only way that this color has anything to do with silver)? Regardless of the name, a nice addition to the lineup.

    Looks almost gold in a way (maybe not). I like it too as well as the new blue.

    Looks like a pretty close match to the second 2012 Model X prototype. Not a bad color, and dirt probably won't show up much at all...

    Titanium sounded a hell of a lot cooler than warm silver.

    Well, that and Taupe sounds like a color your great aunt, the librarian, wears.

    I like it a lot.

    I really like white for my MX, but I wanted to put some sort of paint protective coating on it (which everyone agrees looks horrible on white). Traditional silver gets lost in rain and fog. I had a silver car that several people just backed into in foggy weather. They never saw it. My current black car is way too hot for my current climate.

    This tarnished taupe color could work. I wonder if distracted people might lose it in sunset/glare though. It's hard to defensively choose a vehicle color.
    :wink:

    Thanks to the OP for posting this.

    The return of brown!

    I'm instantly transported back to the 90s when "champagne"-colored Japanese cars like the Accord were in vogue. Looks pretty nice. I like it.

    I agree. This is not in any ways silver.

    Gold, tan, light brown, warm grey perhaps, dirt...

    Like the warm silver color. Agree that it will hide dust and dirt. Will go good with the tan interior. Thanks for posting the pictures!

    Warm Silver (In the Wild Pictures)

    Now that I've seen it in person I really like the Warm Silver:

    I had a mid-90's Accord that was almost exactly this new color. I'm glad the color is back, because it's gold but not tacky looking!


    Speaking from experience, this is definitely probably one of the easiest colors to keep looking good :biggrin:

    It looks like it may not have fog/cornering lamps.

    'Coppertop' was unavailable, I suppose.
