Get white, it reflects more of the sunlight back into the atmosphere and helps fight global warming.

LMFAO!

Question: It being a new car, dont you get any choice?

I think black is standard and any other "standard" color is 500-1000 more. Any custom color (pink, RGB value, etc) will be more expensive.

It's the only white that I would get on a Honda :)

It is a shame that black looks great. The color is the biggest pita to keep clean.

Silver is the best. Doesn't fade and doesn't show dirt.
White and black would be a PITA to keep clean...especially in Canada.

I don't think you've ever even looked at a price list for a car, let alone bought one ;)

manufacturers typically have a few base colours that are 'free', these might be non-metallic black, white or perhaps red if you are lucky. these are pauper colours, and no one buys these. Metallic (or pearl) ones not only look way nicer, but they add to resale value. I'd certainly never buy a non-metallic coloured car used. The downside of course is they are cost options so they might be £500 for some low tier ones, going up to thousands for specialist production run colours not usually available on that car, but available from that manufacturer.

Some high end manufacturers i.e. Porsche, BMW, Mercedes, Audi upwards also allow you to specify literally any colour. You just bring in the sample to the show room, or hell even and RGB as you say and they will mix up a paint to match... at a price :D

Hope that helps!
