    I voted blue, but I am really torn between that and Pearl White.

    So I see Brown is popular. How many folks have seen the brown? I'm having a hard time getting a feel for it. I would LIKE to like a nice dark brown, but I seem to be drifting toward black on black. I know how that will look. Also, if you're doing brown, what's your interior?

    Getting the performance package so Blue/grey leather/carbon fiber is a sharp combo.

    I had my heart set on green/banana leaf/tan leather, but they don't offer the banana leaf for the performance :(

    brown is pretty cool- but style wise you aren't supposed to mix brown a black

    Muir Red. Have to wait 'til 2013 for EU deliveries, anyway.

    I used to own a 69 cutlass convertible that had a metallic brown exterior with a white leather interior that i loved ... I have yet to see a comparable brown like that now however. Googling for something and i found a link to one that was pretty close to what i used to have ... http://s360.photobucket.com/albums/oo42/markmind/?action=view&current=088.jpg#!oZZ10QQcurrentZZhttp%3A%2F%2Fs360.photobucket.com%2Falbums%2Foo42%2Fmarkmind%2F%3Faction%3Dview%26current%3D088.jpg

    I
    know that white is currently not an option for the interior unless you are a sig holder but if the grey is light enough i am thinking that it might still look pretty good. Will wait until i can see it before i decide ...

    That was a subtle suggestion that it should be added to the list. It's been promised, even if it's not been added to the web site.

    The "red" option is now shown on the Pricing & Options page, notated as "available in 2013".

    Yeah, got that, my oversight. I don't think I am able to add it to the poll at this stage though, someone correct me if I'm wrong.

    That's what I heard in so many words at the test ride event. They may have to add a nice Red for my wife to not pass on our P reservation.

    I don't know, but the moderators definitely can do it.

    Ditto. Love the blue, think it will hide the dark nose cone well, but I also think the carbon fiber accents on the performance model will pop with the pearl white...

    The brown looks way better than i though. I went to see it last week and it looks like a fairly dark bronze-copper alloy.

    Due to cost control measures instituted by my matrimonial accountant my only options are white and black. Since I hate white cars...Black it is. Unless I win the Lottery (which I don't play, so my odds are a little low there) or come into a windfall by some other means, it will be black. Wish I could justify a Sig to get into the Red (and the performance), but that's just being greedy.

    I am in the same position. But am getting white, only because the Pearl White is out of my grasp.
