    Re: color preferences...?

    i myself have a diamond white escalade, sometimes i kinda regret getting it, i wish i got the Red-E. the reason i feel that way is because here in san francisco everytime i see a escalade its either diamond white or black. i barely see any of the other colors. i think you should get which ever color you dont see that much of in yoru area. and just to make this clear im not disrespecting diamond white and black. its just that i see way too many.but the white is really BEAUTIFUL!! when that thing is all cleaned up and waxed it just looks like its glowing daytime & nite

    There nothing is like a white diamon escalade. It is gorgeous. But at the same time there is nothing like a black escalade as well. The only problem is that black is hard to maintain. White is not that tough to maintain---i mean it gets dirty, but dust and rain spots and all that nonsense u worry about wiith black u dont worry about with white. I think that for an EXT u should get either black or out of blue. Those are the two hottest colors for the EXT. Or just get whatever u get a discount on and spend 2G on a special custom paint job!

    I think the hottest colors for an ext are black or out of the blue also. With Black you with get paint swirls from washing it. Blue is real nice not a lot of them on the road and it will stand out. White is also a gorgeous color as well. It is your choice though. In New Jersey I mostly see white and black. I really like black, but just like pistol said it is hard to maintain.

    if you want to stand out then I would recommend the out of the blue. I haven't seen one on the road at all but then again I live in a small town. If you want the car to look classy I would recommend the white diamond. I agree with the othe replies saying that there are way too many white diamonds.you are also paying 1k extra for somethig everyone has but its such a beautiful color. If i had to choose again i would probably choose the blue. I'm guessing the resale value would probably be worth the 1k extra for white diamond, but i'm not sure.

    I love my white diamond more than the black lade because it never needs to be cleaned. I wash the white lade once every three weeks while the black one looks dirty in a couple of days. The only thing I gotta worry about with the white diamond is keepiong the chrome wheels clean cause they get dirtier faster than the paint. Althought the black can look really cool if you make it completely black with black rims and black lights and fully tinted, then you have one scary looking lade.

    As said above the white diamond is so easy to keep clean, these are big trucks and keeping a black truck clean is a full time job, if you do not mind the work then go for black, personally I would only ever get a light color truck.

    I'm a "klutz" I am sure I'd fall off !! Wet sneakers from the soapy water on the ground and slide right off the top step, only to be impalled onto the side mirror. Guess that's why I don't own a SUV.

    I have an Out of da blue Ext and like the fact that I don't see too many my color. If I were to buy another one I would definetly go with the new RED-E colored ext's, that is a hot color. I always liked the basic white Escalades, I think its called Aspen white. I don't know why they discontinued that color. I would love to see a true brilliant silver.

    i know what your saying on that one OutOf TheBlue, i just saw a Red-E the other day and it was really nice and that was at night too, sometimes i want to trade mines in and get that color.

    OUT OF THE BLUE IS THE WAY TO GO IF YOU WANT TO GET A LOT OF ATTENTION. I HAVE PEOPLE EVERY OTHER DAY ASKING ME ABOUT IT OR COMPLEMENTING IT. MOST PEOPLE THINK IT IS A CUSTOM PAINT JOB.
