I do think it looks good, but I really wanted a colour other than those that can accurately be captured with a black and white camera. That's about 80% of the vehicles on the road today. There were only three non b/w colours available when I ordered - Blue, Red and Punkin. Already have a blue Vette, a red JK and can't see myself in a mobile pumpkin. I prefer primary colours, which left black or white. As much as I like black, I don't want the upkeep required to keep black looking good. So white it is.

This is mine, except I ordered black interior. Tan looks pretty nice though.
Once had a red Vette with a tan interior since it was a wannabe Ferrari and that's the traditional Ferrari aesthetic. It taught me never to do another tan interior. Any visual imperfections (leather cracking, interior scuffing, dirt, wear etc.) are highlighted by the light colour. Every vehicle of mine since has either had a black or dark grey interior and has worn far better. Granted, I'm in a cold climate where I don't have to be worried about getting burned on sun heated black seats.

I almost wanna go tan on Ocean Blue, as my black leather has been burning my ass for three summers now.

Also, no more aluminium shift knobs, for the same reason. Shit hurts!

Yeah my Miata has tan leather and I agree with your points here. I would go a step further and say no leather ever again, or at least on vehicles in the lower to mid price range. Rather cheap leather and wrinkles up quick.

Never had that issue. Last three vehicles have had touch screens with removable roofs and my newest has a screen the same size as the JL. With the roof off, there can be an issue of legibility in bright sunlight, but it never reflects light into my eyes. I think the geometry of the screen placement is done to prevent that.

Jeep Forum rule #1 Don't ever mention a Miata
Rule #2 Jeep owners should never be seen in or near a Miata unless they are cruising past it in their Jeep.
Rule #3 Never own a Miata
Rule #4 If you own a Miata or have ever owned one or even considered purchasing one, for the sake of yourself never mention it lol

Lol JK Miatas aren't too bad especially the new ones. But seriously...

Is that your Vette, and if so, what year?

I’m the opposite. Going from white to red. My last two TJs have been white. I love white on a Jeep. Our Cherokee Trailhawk is also white. All with blackout hood decals. I was just ready for a change and all the promo shots of the 2-door Rubi hooked me.

Not new, exactly, but according to the Customer Assistance Center, PSTs are still not scheduled and predicted to start mid-May.
