Seeing Carbonized Gray "dirty" or in poor lighting is really souring me on the color. It makes the car look so boring and anonymous.

When it's clean and waxed and in the sun it looks *amazing*.

Starting to second-guess my paint color after placing my order, of course :p
I think this is true for most paint colors with occasional exception. I have a friend with a basic white '99 Jeep Wrangler that has *never* *ever* washed it. It still looks great. It's not clean or shiny, but it looks good. And that's out here in the dusty desert.

A paint that does well here even when dirty is the silvery-gold metallic hue. It pretty much matches the color of dust that gets glued to our cars during monsoon storms. Like the one below. Except preferably not on a Honda since they have paint fade and peel issues (in my limited experience).

Oh and by the way, I'm second guessing my paint choice, too. I'd do that no matter which one I pick, though.

It's probably not too late to change.

Unfortunately Grabber Blue is not available except on limited edition or GT models. No other color except Cyber Orange, which is limited to GT models is appealing to me. I do not want a GT. I do not want AWD.

If I can't get in on this "Mach Drop" I'll probably reconsider the car altogether.

Nice. Not exactly drawing a crowd though. Hopefully pics were just taken at an off time.
