Last week I went two weeks without washing the car, and if it wasn't for the brake dust I wouldn't have noticed it was dirty! The silver is amazing! Add a light tint on it and you have one mean machine. I am glad i traded the white car, I have been much more satisfied with the silver. But go with black leather! I have had my car maybe 3 1/2 months and boy does the grey leather get dirty quick! I desperately need to get a leather cleaner and conditioner. The black is very nice. i had my white/tan car for 6 months and the sand leather wasn't even close to being dirty. I think it is just the shade of the grey. It has yet to show any signs of wear but you can see the leather is getting dirty very quickly.
I'd have to say Silver/Black is the best looking and easies to clean combo.
