That's pretty much the same in Texas, at least for a base model. I settled for silver as a second choice. Pyrite Mica would have been a better color for hunting, especially in the dark with night vision for hogs while not showing brush scratches quite as bad as the darker colors.

Gotta be either Spruce Mica or Pyrite Mica.

I nearly bought a black Tacoma, but went and looked at another a few miles down the road on a whim. Turns out it was Pyrite mica, and when it was parked between a pair of black BMW's it looked brown. Then they moved it over onto the lawn for me to crawl underneath and take a look at it, and it looked almost an off-green. Then when we came back from the test drive and parked it beside the white building it looked almost like it had a coppery sheen. I was sold, and I still like it best. The one other color that I'd trade even for might be the Spruce mica; I've always loved green trucks, and the spruce mica has just enough glitter to be cool.

I really wanted Speedway Blue but got such a deal on my Silver Streak, I couldn't pass it up.

My wife and I have twin super white Toyotas...




She has the cheapest 2012 base model Yaris and I have the cheapest 2012 base model Tacoma. We're matching cheapskates.

White is our favorite because it's the coolest color. I especially like it because it perfectly matches the color of 99 cent white rattlecan spray paint.

I was searching for over a year for a Speedway blue or a Silver Streak Mica that was 2009 or newer, double cab, long bed, 4x4, trd, sport. Wow they are very hard to find FOR SALE in Florida. My friends started calling this vehicle the "Great White Buffalo" or "the Unicorn", a Mythical creature that you only hear stories of. It became a huge joke between my friends and even my coworkers. I finally found one and it was 300 miles away. Only catch, it was Magnetic Gray. Looks like Magnetic Gray Metallic is my new favorite color. lol. Now that I own a MGM, Its really grown on me.

Stay away from white!

I absolutely love vehicles with white paint and blacked-out windows and accessories. That's why I bought my 2011 AC Tacoma in white. I loved the look until earlier this year when I noticed some dull spots appearing on my hood. Since then, they have gotten bigger and I now have one on the rear door. They are spots where the paint is oxidizing! My truck is not even 3 years old and the paint job is fuc&ed up!! From what I've read, Toyota uses a 1 stage painting process for the white paint. Supposedly, the clear coat is contained within the paint itself and "rises" to the top as the paint dries. In other words, no clear coat is added.
I am headed to my Toyota dealership next weekend to find out what they intend to do about it.
