Color Help

I'm going back and forth between a few colors for my GTR. What say you? Photos of your ride or ones you've found would help.

Solarbeam Yellow
Magnetite Black
Selenite Grey Metallic

Wheels I plan on going with are HRE P101s.

Deja vu thread.

Get the Green Magno. Otherwise, selenite. Solar beam is synonymous with the GTS

Green is ugly. I'm not driving a Marvel Comics car around like a 12-year-old lol.

Actually , it grows on you. When I first saw it when it was introduced, I thought it was hideous. Now , I love it.

Yellow is just as shocking. Sometimes, I like my choice, sometimes I find it a little disturbing. Not sure how the color will stand the test of time.

Grey is classic but boring. Every car I see is some shade of grey.

I think I like yellow the most. White isn't half bad either.

I can't find any good shots of Magnetite Black though

Also, has the nicer rims without the thick silver edge.

Ooooh, thanks! Yeah those are good shots.

Now all I need is some shots of magnetite black. Those seem to be harder to find. There are a few on Autogespots but they are either at night or really grainy.

Black will be mean, Solarbeam more sporty, which for me suits the cars character.... but then I'm having a Gialo episode

Well I know what black black looks like. But magnetite is a bit different, no?

Wow, I didn't think I would like that color as much as I do now after seeing it. This would probably be my choice!

OP, what finish are you looking to do on the P101's? Is it dependent on the final color you pick for the GTR?

Will depend on the car's color. I'm also considering the P204.

also depends if you want to spend that much more for green (granted Green Hell conjures up images of the ring every time you look at it) or yellow.. granted it isn't $20k like the yellow on the Gsquare 4x4... That white one looks amazing also

I think the green is worth it and I am not a fan of green. It looks phenomenal on the GTR.

Some pics from my garage.

Not interested in green, guys. Just Selenite Metallic or Magnetite Black or maybe yellow. None of the dealers near me have any cars in either yellow or Magnetite. So it's hard to make a decision. Just heard from my dealer that I have until the end of the week to make a change in my order before it goes into production.

I was there like 4 days ago. I spoke to two salesmen and the manager. They showed me around. We walked the entire dealership and lots and there were no cars in Magnetite Black. So somethings up. Is this a new car or used?
