Don't mess with a color change. It's way more work & more expencive. Stay black.

Stay original because it would just be problems when it comes to matching the vin #, registration or insurance info if you ever get into an accident.

I am actually planning on painting my 2007 white diamond here soon...my wife backed into something recently and the back bumper is a little scuffed and the front is chipped pretty bad (100,000 miles on the truck), but everything else is solid. May not even need the whole thing painted if I can find someone to do just the bumpers. I wouldn't ever change colors though. Stick with what you have.

Unless you are ready to do it the right way (i.e. pain door jambs, engine bay etc.), I would definitely suggest staying with the original color.

Have you looked into paintless dent removal? It will more than likely be less expensive than painting and will definitely be less than changing colors. I had about 10 dents removed as part of the sale on the '08 I picked up, can't even tell where they were. My parents Lexus had around 50 dents removed from a hailstorm with golfball sized hail. Some dents were on creases in the metal and there isn't a hint of damage left.

The hail didnt just get dents the paint chiped and now u can see some of the metal! My main concern is rust!

OK, check with insurance if you haven't already. My parents just had to pay the deductible for the dent removal. Not sure what your policy is but may be worth looking into. I think some companies may not cover "acts of God"

Stay Black. The best color on an Escalade. White diamond a close second.
