    Ok so i'm currently driving a 06 sport silver, which i love, but unfortunitely i kinda messed up my knee and my baby is a 6spd, so i'm toying with the idea of upgrading to an 09 sport auto...while silver is my fav color (my last 3 toyotas were silver) and it always looks good when dirty, scratched, etc..but i'm thinking about changing it up a bit this time around...The dealer i'm going to has both the Timberland mica and Magnetic grey sports in stock and i'm torn between which one i like...i'm looking to hear from any owners of these two colors to see how they like em' and if they could choose again would they choose the same color...any suggestions would be awesome guys :D

    yeah i was concerned about the "scratches" thing, but since both are dark colors i guess you'd get that with either

    btw if anyone has pics of the timberland (the dealer ones weren't that great) i'd love to see some :)

    TIMBER!!!(land) Green is my first choice, it's just classier than MGM...although Super White is the classiest of them all, MGM would be second.

    Actually I would go with:
    1) Speedway Blue
    2) Super White
    3)Timberland Green
    4) Magnetic Gray

    yeah i wanted to do that but i wasn't sure how to make a poll....(forget it i figured it out)

    actually i agree on the white, i think the sport trucks look sharp in white...but i'm thinking i want a dark color this time around...

    Although white is my first choice, you were looking at Timberland and MGM so I voted Timberland Green.

    I really like the magnetic gray, they did'nt have what I wanted on the lot in grey so I went for Timberland mica. kinda glad I did because around here you see a ton of magnetic gray's (very popular color) and I've yet to see another Timerland mica on the road yet!

    yeah that's one thing i think i like about the timberland, i don't see any around here...not even on the lots, i have to actually go over to NJ to find the one i wanted in stock...actually come to think of it there really aren't many taco's in my area, but if there is they all seem to be silver:rolleyes:

    i see the magnetic grey is getting most votes...hmm really don't see those around much either....ah decisions decisions
