    i just went through the exact same thing. the guy i bought mine from had two identical cars, one black one silver. i seen them side by side and chose silver. looks better on that car IMO and black is a bitch to take care of.

    ahh they both have t - tops.. the one i'm looking at is a black auto, i really want a 6 speed, and the silver is.. they're about the same price/mileage.

    I just think a manual would be SO much more fun to drive.. I've just always loved black..

    Just kinda trying to figure out a good route for appearance mods if i do go with the silver one.. any suggestions?

    I would pick the silver M6 over the black A4. Black is a real nightmare to care for and it sounds like you really want an M6 anyways.

    With a silver one, you can do the CETA mod, with black you can't do it. You can do the blackbird stripes down the sides of the hood, if you choose. There are a lot of mods you can do with silver, just keep it simple and stick to a theme.

    I will post a pic of a very nicely done silver TA in a second.

    I was having the same problem too. I went with black and it looks GORGEOUS when its clean, but if you use it as a daily driver, it looks like crap and needs washed every few days. I'm kinda wishing I'd went with silver now. I got such a good deal on my car, I couldn't pass it up either way. I would've bought almost any color. My sig picture is after about 4 hours of clay barring and hand-waxing.

    hmm wow you're right.. that looks nice.. thanks!

    how do you do that ceta mod? and basically it's just painting the bumper black, right?

    and those stripes on the hood are the blackbird stripes?

    yeah that's what i was thinking, i currently have a black car now... and it gets dirty quick.. but i do agree that they look very nice when they're all cleaned up and waxed!

    this would be my daily driver though so maybe you're right on that

    It's the first 6 speed with an ATF tube! (or is that something else?)
