    Hello I am buying my first tacos today and I am having the hardest time choosing a color.
    I have narrowed it down to mgm and swb and i am looking for opinions on those two colors. Thanks in advance.

    I have a super white that my son has claimed for next year , I think I'm going with a MGM on my next one.

    My only concern with the mgm is that it might come off looking bland but then again i think it will look better all blacked out than the blue.

    I'd say MGM, I don't think they look too bland at all. In fact I think the only Tacos that sometimes come across as a bit bland are the Desert Sand Mica ones, and I've still seen several of those that look badass.
