Hi all.

I am wanting to buy a Nissan X Trail. I have decided on a Ti, Manual, petrol model but I am really stuck on the colour. I thought of deisel (hubby has a diesel patrol) but I think that the petrol will be better for me. I was going to get white, but hubby and my son think I should get Flint. Its a brown kind of colour.
I am getting street legal tint which is pretty dark.
I thought that white would not show the dirt or scratches as much but I looked at 2 cars which had been sitting in the weather for the same time in the yard and the white one looked dirtier.
The dealership is giving me 1 week to make up my mind.

Was just wondering if anyone had any thoughts or suggestions to maybe help me deicde.

Maybe I am fussy but I want it to look good as well. This will be the last car that I purchase.

Good morning Vicandug.

So the one's in the dealership are "dirtier", and the dealership is giving you one week to make up your mind, he sure want's a sale from you???? and it's a lot of money your spending, look around a bit more, in other car yards" and take your time, he will wait, He's putting preasure on you for a sale, it's your money, the price wont go up

Cheers for now....William H.....Bunbury....WA.

Hi vicandug,

"This will be the last car that I purchase." Gosh I wonder how many of us have said this over the years?

Just curious on your choice of petrol over diesel. May what made you favour petrol?

In the interests of maintaining my reputation as a miserable old
****, will any colour other than white cost you the $4 to $5
hundred extra for "metallic paint" ? Just a thought.....oldbaz.

Oldbaz,
Interestingly, the white Xtrails are metallic, but they don't charge extra!

We recently had a bumper resprayed because someone bumped it in a carpark, and it cost over $500 for the insurance company to remove a scratch.

White cars aren't always what they used to be!

Cheers
phil

If it is the last car you intent buying then white is you only choice. White cars come up a treat when detailed. I had a 93 white 4 runner, when it was time to sell it came up a million dollars. I work for a major car rental co and while we buy a range of colours the white ones always have less scratches etc and polish up better.
Mind you I still love ferrari red lol, but it has to be polished every 6 months. You know the answer already dont you.
Goodluck Pete

Any colour but white. White is for delivery vans, better resale on a colour also

Better resale for a few years till the colour fades and the car becomes unsaleable while the white car will look like new with a polish.

A little unknown fact,

White cars/vehiclesare 30' degrees cooler than coloured vehicles

So if you wish to drive in an oven, buy any colour but white.

It really beats me why ppl buy black vehicles? Talk about heat build-up.
