Having had Mojave Metallic (a very slight shade deeper than Sparkling Bronze) and also Sparkling Graphite (pewter gray metallic) in the past, I disagree that they are viable alternatives. They are just as hard to maintain as Black and very unforgiving with showing dings and chips and scrapes and near impossible to touch up.

White and Silver (including Mineral Silver which is Champagne colored) will always be the most forgiving colors as far as showing dirt and swirls, as well as the abovementioned blemishes.
