Re: What's your preferred color? (jvincent)

I voted for Cypress Green Metallic, I think it's a subtle yet beautiful color.<br>However, my absolute favorite is Nautic Blue Metallic, but I wouldn't get it only because my Grand Cherokee is almost the same exact shade of blue & I would want something different. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emsmile.gif" BORDER="0">

I can't remember the names, but I like that silvery light green color. And I think that it might also look good in the Polar Arctic Blue (I can't remember the name).

Re: What's your preferred color? (GrecianVolvo)

Found the Polar Arctic on the 2002 XC, but not on anything 2003 (?). Is it offered on any 2003's? And what is Ocean Blue, also from the 2002 XC?<p>Has Volvo been know to do a non-spec color for a vehicle that is spec for other models? I.e. Polar Arctic, While Pearl, etc. I think they're all built on the same line?<p>PS. Anyone located any photos in nautic blue or white?

with the chrome accents, I think the darker coors stand out very will. I too am partial to teh Nautic Blue, too bad we can't get the Sand or Silver interiors.

I really like the crystal green metallic. At night, and when it's cloudy, it has a subtle green hue..in the daylight it could pass for silver...

Re: What's your preferred color? (jvincent)

I'm more concerned about how a car will look after 10 years, so I voted White. Not the sexiest color but it won't show stone ships like the darker colors. It's easier to touch up than the metallic colors and looks better longer after you wash it than black.<p>My wife has a Nautic blue metallic 97 850 and the stone chips show on that like you wouldn't believe.<BR><BR>

Having 2 metallic colored cars a cypress green minivan and a burgundy car, the touch up isn't bad<p>The washing is definitely true about the darker colors<BR><BR>

Re: What's your preferred color? (GrecianVolvo)

Not a fan of crystal green metallic? hehe<p>My concern with that color is with its longevity. Looks kinda wicked right now but it might look sloppy/lame in a few years. And the silver is extremely classy (and timeless). Like I said...I have a couple months to decide <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emsmile.gif" BORDER="0"> .<p>OT

Re: What's your preferred color? (OverTime)

I ordered Crystal Green. I saw it on the lot and thought it looked silver and liked the fact that it wasn't exactly silver. Read later it looked green in twilight, etc.<p>Long story short, was offered silver in December and had to decide between December silver and April crystal green. Only other diff between ordered and offered was no hid's on offered. Struggled for a few hours and then went for the silver/no hid combo.<p>End of the day, I am very happy with the silver. Volvo's silver is a very nice, rich looking silver. Check out the V70 XC's you see on the road. Don't they look awesome? It's not a dull grey thing at all. Drove past a crystal green one after I took delivery and was glad I ended up with silver. Not that there's anything wrong with crystal green - it looks good too. But I'm happy with my choice.<p><br>Good luck.<br>

Re: What's your preferred color? (blujeep)

<br>I love the crystal green as well as the nautic blue. My original order was for a crystall green until the tricolor sank.<p>Luckily I had a choice of additional colors once some inventory was available at my dealership and after some careful thinking came with the following conclusions :<p> - Crystal Green is awsome and trendy. If I look at trendy colors of the past, today they seem to be outdated. I do not want a color that will soon look outdated<p>- Nautic Blue is also a very nice color however as most dark colors, stone chips and dirt are very visible all the time.<p>So , I choose the ash gold metalic, it is a nice color, the black trims of the car do stand out very nicely (contrary to dark colors), it hides dirt very well and since it looks like its not one of the most popular colors in this forum, I will not see many similar cars like mine on the street.<p> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emwink.gif" BORDER="0">
