Tough color decision: deep Cher red or min gray?!?

I can't decide on a color. Either deep cherry red(wife's choice) or mineral gray(my choice). The tough part is I see awesome pics of both. Then terrible looks of both too. Seems as the color changes alot. Decisions decisions...

Re: Tough color decision: deep Cher red or min gray?!?

What model are you getting? I think the Mineral Grey looks bland on the Laredo and Laredo X. I think it needs the chrome of the Limited and up to play off of it, but on the Limited and up Mineral Grey is my favorite color.

Re: Tough color decision: deep Cher red or min gray?!?

Funny u say that. I been looking in the srt section since the chance of seeing those 2 colors is higher and man... They both seem to look amazing in all those pics. Then I look at dealer pics and they just don't look good. Gonna head out this weekend and see them in person and make a decision

You need to check out the colors when both overcast and in the sun. Especially the Pearl coats which an look completely different in the sun.

I like Mineral Grey when overcast. It's a nice, elegant grey. But in the sun? It doesn't even look grey to me. Looks beige. Reminds me of an old "Champagne" Honda.

And although I griped about too much chrome on the vehicle in the, well, "too much chrome?" thread, I do like the chrome grill of the WK2. I think it looks best when contrasted against a darker color. I don't even notice the chrome on the Mineral Grays.

absolutely agree. I have a black Laredo X which I love... but mineral gray looks as you said bland w/ the painted wheels. With the chrome, though... freaking love the mineral gray.

My mom got Red. I like it, though I really like the metallic black or the mineral grey as well.
