Question Best colour for a 35?

Has a poll been done yet on the best colour for a Gtr 35?
Had a search but could not find one

Titanium - collectors piece now as they don't do it for 2011 on ;-)

But I'm sure some will misguidedly say "there's a reason for that"

There's a reason for that (or am I misguided).

Black looks great in the flesh (but then I would say that )

I heard that white was the best colour

And the fastest too for that matter!

Best colour = Black
Worst colour = Black
Colour most likely to break your heart = Black

I'll be back in a minute a spec of dust just landed on my bonnet and you can see it a mile away against the black.......

^^ totally agree..when doing my research did not think it was as bad as people make out but....kuro black really is and every time you wash it despite taking all the precautions, it ends up with even more marks

Black is an awesome colour for all of 30 seconds after you have just washed it!

Black cars do look amazing if kept pristine. They look ruddy awful if they're not though.

I had a black freelander, it always looked terrible because I live on a farm down a track. Silver is great at looking clean all the time, im finding gunmetal on the gtr pretty easy to live with.

Red, Red, Red (every time) the only reason DMG "won" was cos there are so many boring owners out there (who probably want to get their cars wrapped to a different colour) - controversial I know! LOL
