    I picked up my Super White 18 TRD DCOR last month. It's my 4th Tacoma. It looks great!! Most of my past vehicles were white. I just love how they look. Having said that, Toyota has done a phenomenal job with their color line-up.

    Man, I was looking at my truck in the garage last night thinking how nice the Quicksand would look. Then I had a dream that I had a Quicksand Tacoma. Now I'm awake thinking I should have bought the Quicksand!!!

    Anyone else have second thoughts...

    No second thoughts for me on my 16 Quicksand TRDOR DCSB. I debated between inferno and QS and loved the choice

    I love my Cement 17 PRO which I traded the 16 for. I loved it was exclusive, now every ED limp grandpa named Jesus has a cement in AARP limited trim

    Recently I bought a new 18 for my farm in SR. It is the ugliest silver in the world. My regret is the SR ($22,000) doesn’t come in the inferno or quick sand which are the colors I would have chosen for it

    Then again since my 18 is used to haul 1500 lbs of date daily and some passengers with fake social security, I don’t have to see the silver so it doesn’t bother me as much. Just wish the SR had more variety

    None for me, love the super white with the black accents of the OR. Cement and quicksand are sweet but I think over time it would grow old for me.

    Nope. Wanted white for a reason(s) so white is what I bought.

    I save my picky colors for sports cars. :D

    I did, every time my black truck got dirty. Now, don't care. When it gets dirty, cover it with more dirt and mud.

    I'm not really in love with any other color, except white. But two of my neighbors already have white 3rd gens. Ok by me to be the black sheep.

    Silver here. Last Tacoma was silver too. Kind of wish I had MGM, BBP, or the white... Thinking of getting it wrapped.

    Silvers are tricky. My wife has a 16 Rav4 Silver (something). I don't particularly care for it, but it's not mine. I had a 95 Tacoma EXT Cab that had a type of Pewter Metallic color that was very cool. Actually I wish I would have kept it!!

    No regrets for me after waiting for a Cement. I really like all of the Toyota colors that are offered with the exception of QS (just not for me).

    Super white looks awesome on the OR. Not a big fan of the color matched trucks, they just don't look as good overall.

    Got the MGM. While it looks awesome, it gets so frickin hot in Nevada that I wish I would have gotten white.

    White is good man, especially in OR trim. Good contrast between the flares

    Silver Tacoma OR. No regrets. Silver does a great job hiding the dirt and light scratches. It always looks clean from a distance. Only bad thing is that when it gets detailed it doesnt shine as much as other colors.

    It all depends on the polish. You can make it look like a mirror if that's what you're looking for. It's got a 2nd stage clear. Not all Toyota paint does currently. If it doesn't specify metallic or pearl in the description, that's how you can tell. The Superwhite in my wife's vehicle looks good, but you have to spend more time keeping it up.

    Got qs only because it was the only manual available in socal at the time. After not having to wash it for weeks at a time I really like it.

    I'll occassionally wish I had gone for the cement color but then I'll see one in low light and it looks too blue.
