    I've been trying to decide on what color I get my Taco in when the time comes. It's going to be at least two months still 'till I'm able to finalize a decision on one due to a job (or, in my case, a lack-thereof a job). I've been waiting for this pretty decent paying Navy internship, and got word from several people (my father included) that they won't be hiring new interns 'till October (which is when their new budget comes in). When they do start hiring, though, I'm one of the first on the list (if not THE first) due to many factors (mainly, my non-fulltime student schedule).

    When I do get my Taco - I want to be damn sure of every detail, so I don't spend time at the dealer "Uhhhh, I'll take this, no, that, uh, no, wait..." doing that.

    The last thing I need to decide on is the color. These are the ones that I'm most interested in, but can't decide, for the life of me, which one I like better. I'm torn. I need help. :D

    Silver Streak Mica
    Black Sand Pearl
    Magnetic Grey Metallic
    Indigo Ink Pearl (if, by chance, I can find an '08)

    Which should I go with?

    Silver is the easiest to maintain. I have not washed mine in months, the only reason you'd know its dirty right now is because I have mud/sand splattered all over it, otherwise it looks pretty clean even when its not.

    I went silver only because black is so hard to keep clean - anything shows up and looks horrible. Living in New England where weather is fickled, silver has been great! I'd love the black but don't want to spend all my time cleaning it.

    Good luck with your decisions.

    Depends on how much time you spend keeping it clean. We all know black is a bugger to keep clean, but boy does it look good. Personally, I think I'd go for the grey, it's a good looking color. :)

    If your going to keep living in Arizona I would look for white. I live in Texas and have been converted to white vehicles. The color never goes out of style, doesn't show dust, and stays cool in the intense heat. :cool:
