On the 9000CSE's I my favrorite color is white (cirrus white, if I'm not mistaken). That's what my 9000 is and with the black trim it looks damn _sexy_ Black might be good too... Not too keen on actual colors other than black and white :-p So far I've had a silver 9000s (meh, alirght... seemed most 80s 9ks were silver), and a white NG900V6, my parents have a 9-3 in black. I don't think white looks as good on the 9-3 and 9-5s, but on the 9kCS's its down right beautiful! (maybe its because I detail the crap out of it!)
