As others have stated, color is a very personal thing. I've always been a fan of Sapphire Black or Jet Black, but that's just me. Carbon Black is a great color as well, and I find it to be a rarer...

What color did you end up with? I was planning on Ruby Black for my Euro Delivery but decided to go with the standard color. The wait is excruciating as the ship slowly makes its way to West Coast.

LOL, the picture in my signature line was taken at the dealer; the other pics were taken in my garage. My neighbors think that I have a screw loose given my OCD-level garage. :D
