Even though DG is so common, I still love the way it looks.

OB...I have it...I'd trade paint with someone if it was that easy. Swirls FTL, dust FTL, mud FTL... I polished (real polish, not wax like all the dorks of the world like to call polish), then waxed my hood yesterday. After a few minutes, there were specs of dust showing everywhere.

I would have loved Irovy Pearl or Blue Slate. Those are SOOOO sexy.

Also +1 on the Carribean Blue. I HATE that color. And supposedly people get a premium since it's rare

Carribean Blue = World Rally Blue = STI Owning Boy Racers.

I like the color and I think it looks good on the G35 but somehow I feel it degrades the "Class" of the car.

I mean, Black and Pearl are both very classy colors.

Even tho black is hard to keep clean... I am still glad I got it. It looks the best IMO! It's rare to see black G's near me...

2nd choice is Ivory Pearl/White!

Some colors might look good when they are clean... others might look good when they are dirty...

But Black is the best because it looks like PURE SEX when it is polished well. Black is the hardest to keep but that is why it is the best color....

OB all the way... Would only go with the silver or the grey or the AB(only seen 1 and it was the guy i got my 19's from and liked the corlor but too for me )

AB = SUBY = + heliochrome85 =



Oh and I had that same BLUE Slate on my Toyota 4runner... Just as hard to keep as black without the benefit of the wax.... But yea it had 3 different colors...

plus, i think Carribean blue is more along the lines of Suby STi Blue. Athens blue isnt the same color.

I will say twilight blue is the best color. I really wanted that color but they didn't have it for 2006. No love for laser red? That's like the only color that we haven't talked about.

I almost got black...as as matter of fact, my heart was set on black and everybody was shocked when i bought the ivory pearl. I didn't get the black because i didn't have a garage at the time, and i would never purchase a black car with out having a garage to put it in. I'm in love with my white one though, the only thing is i wish it had black interior. It has the black with grey though which is acceptable.

Yeah I'm glad I got black, I love it... I wish I had a garage to put it in, but I do have a cover for it so that helps... I Would love to take some pics of our G's... Black & White together would look fresh!Yeah I really wanted black on black but I had to settle on the tan interior... Which actually looks better in person and with the black its not bad at all... Plus its no where near as hot as black so I can live with it.

Ms. 99QX4, i have to say, i love white, but its too feminine for me to drive it. it'd be like driving an RX350. Men dont drive white G's. Esp, pearl white. So, im glad you chose white, because i have a soft spot in my heart fr it.

its too dark. the only dark color for the g that looks good is black. otherwise, it just hides the curves of the car.

I had to decide between IP and BS.......what swayed it to BS was that the dealer had it in stock, and I hadn't seen too many G's in that color. White isn't very feminine on certain cars, my dads Escalade pulls it off quite well, and I think the G pulls it off as well.

my mom's escalade is in Infrared. you definately dont see many of those running around. plus it suits her personality, being a red head.

I would rock a white G... Tint it out, lower it with some black on chrome wheels.
