    ...as I can't find one to look at in driving distance. I am trying to decide between timberland mica and barcelona red. Will cost me $350 more than a silver one they have in stock. Dang, that is a good deal on the silver one, and only 12 mi on it. I could buy almost half a set of new tires with that 350!

    Both are good colors. That was my hardest choice as well (color selection). Just keep thinking and get the one you want best.

    I just bought a brand new TRD OR Access and mine is silver. I went with silver becuase I saved a considerable amount of money and honestly I love it. My other choice was the Magnetic Grey Metallic but silver is bad ass :D

    all of that said, you have to ask yourself is the color you want worth 350? or is it worth it to save that and get a color you may like but just not like AS much...and as you said, 350 can buy you some sweet other stuff for that new truck

    WOW found out I can trade for a new set of TA/KO's for $600. The $350 is looking mighty nice right now - more than half a set of nice tires to go on a SILVER Tacoma - arggh!

    well..i opted for silver cause its so easy to keep clean! plus the magnetic grey wasnt out yet...but i love the timberland mica color!!! that would be my choice over red forsure!! cause those shades of red are about impossible to match if u ever have to have something painted....

    I think you should get exactly what you want... I just traded a MGM for a Barcelona Red. I wanted the red, but at the time there were none in the western US, so I settled for MGM... 5 months later........ I got the Red ..I'm much happier now

    :D


    besides way too many MGM's around

    My wife and I just picked up a 2010 Tacoma 4x4 TRD w/Access Cab in Barcelona Red. I was not immediately sold on the red, my wife loved it. Honestly, I was hoping for silver, but none were available until early next year, and that was from a dealer a considerable distance away. I must say, the red has certainly grown on me. The color looks great on overcast days, and spectacular in the sun. I have gotten numerous nods and waves driving around. The truck looks sharp! My suggestion, and only you know, look at the silver and red in both types of weather and buy buy what catches your eye most. Either color, I'm sure you will be thrilled with.

    No thanks on the trade...:)! I should have mentioned that it is a Barcelona Red TRD Off Road Package. Since our Tacoma will never see the conditions of moderate to extreme off road driving, there is nothing I would change, or wish I would have gotten on the truck.
