That green/yellow color is great, but not the kind of great where I would actually get it. The kind of great where I think it looks nice in pictures. I don't really want to draw quite that much attention in my sub-$20k car as I'm driving down the road.

That red is a stunner!


I finally found a picture of the Blizzard Pearl from the News Event. I would probably go with this.

Meh, the white doesn't really do it for me. I prefer the red or that green/yellow color.

I did notice the under lighting in the first picture in this thread. That's illegal on the road, but it does make for a great picture.

Right now I'm leaning towards the red or the blue.

I always am attracted by the brighter colors at first. But since I keep my cars for many years I would rather stay with a classic white because I think I would tire of the brighter colors over time.

I don't think that is underlighting in a aftermarket type, more just a bright light behind the car for the picture. I don't see anything that is illegal in some states would come standard on a vehicle.

Remember this is Blizzard Pearl. It isn't a straight white. It is slightly ivory and has metallic flakes. It looks great throughout the years, but if you ever need to touch it up, t/u paint looks like shyte!

Wouldn't the same be true of any color? Touchup paint from Toyota would have the metallic flakes in it too, just like the original paint.

Blizzard pearl is a tri color paint. The first coat is the color then a pearlizer then the clear after that. Other colors have just the color then clear which makes it much easier to match with t/u.

Thanks. Something to think about.

Test drove the blizzard pearl today and wasn't too impressed, I didn't notice much pearl in the paint as I did just a semi-gloss white. Really interested in the Black Sand Pearl however I cannot find any authentic photos of one.

ToddMS beat me to it, looks like a photo/background light. Blue would be my next pic after black (this being said before seeing either in person). Out of the silver and white I was able to test drive today I would prefer silver. White isn't pearl-esque enough for me. Just my .02.

Always liked how it looks in white, only downside is how hard it will be to keep clean in winter since that mess sticks on and takes either serious chemicals or elbow grease or a combination of both to get rid of.
