Deep Impact Blue or Performance White

So I have always been partial to GM but after sitting in the new Camaro a bunch of times, I just can't get past how horrible the interior is. Yesterday while at work I drove past a Ford dealer who happened to have a new 2013 on the showroom floor in DIB and really liked what I saw but I was unfortunately limited on time. So today I went past a local dealer who happened to have about 6 new 2013's sitting outside. They had a Gotta have it Green, Deep Impact Blue, and a Black GT all modified with a Boss intake and a Ford racing axle back. After talking to the salesman, I decided to take the DIB GT out since it had the Brembos and 3.73s. Now I want a track pack car but this as close as I could get. So after going for a short little test drive (in the rain) I decided that this is mostly likely going to be my next car.

Anyways im torn between white and DIB. I have seen pictures of DIB on here and obviously saw it in person, but I haven't seen any pictures of white on a non GT/CS car. Does anyone have some pictures of a regular white GT? Btw I will say the GHIG looked awesome in person but I can definitely see myself getting tired of that color fast.

LOL! I was torn between the same two colors. I really thought I wanted DIB, but after seeing the '13 in Performance White, that ended up being my choice. Don't think you can go wrong either way.

haha, I was deciding between these two colors as well. I think that if you aren't going to do a striping, accent color DIB is way nicer looking in person by itself...But I think white with a blackout theme looks amazing

I have a 2011 Performance white with some hood stripes and black painted stock rims. I know it isn't exactly what you're looking for but it'll give you some idea.. I love the white! So easy to keep clean and it stands out!

Performance White

Both colors are awesome but having seen the DIB it takes on a purplish color depending on the way the sun hits it. Having said that though i ordered the gotta have it green and it does the same thing.You will be a winner either way!

I wouldve gone with white if I didnt get grabber blue. Rock chips can be a problem, but thats with any car. Good thing about white is that it doesnt look as dirty all the time as some colors.

My whole family has white cars lol. Besides the Vette I have which is white, I had a bunch of GTOs but unfortunately they didn't come in white. The Jeep I leased, I needed the truck right away and they could only find a black one with what I wanted so thats why I got black on my Jeep. And my Avalanche, I wanted the body colored Cadillac EXT components and they only made it on silver which was bland, white diamond which I dont like the pearl white and black which I ended up with. Im debating going back to white since it is so easy to keep clean. Do you have any pictures of your car?

Nassau County but the dealership was out east in Suffolk. I was working out that way today so I stopped by there on the way home.

This is as it sits, my 5.0 badges are drying right now because I just plasti dipped them. To me there is so much more you can do on a white vehicle. The truck that I traded in recently was blue and it was annoying to me when there was something that I wanted to do to the truck but when I finished I knew it wouldn't match well... It's really all your opinion though. Either way you'll have a sick looking muscle car! And you can't go wrong there!

I love my 2012 Kona Blue but I would go with the white. This car stays dusty and it is not my daily driver and it is garage kept.

I gotta go with PW. It's easy to keep clean. That's important to me since it's no garage queen - it gets driven about 25k/yr.

I am pleased with my Performance White with SADDLE INTERIOR which is a big hit and draws compliments galore. I found I needed to but those little mud flaps to keep the tail clean, but I guess that's with DIB, too.
I was driving home from NCMC in East Meadow, today and would have stopped over.
GOOD LUCK !

Blue, when it's clean, is the most 'stunning' color but it's a PITA to keep clean. Even the slightest amount of dust looks terrible (I keep a spray bottle with a batch of ONR quick detailer and a MF cloth in my trunk at all times. I wipe her down almost every day) . White on the other hand looks really quite good all the time - it just won't "wow" you like Kona or DIB.

I'm personally a huge fan of the storm trooper look yet I own a Kona... go figure. Maybe in a few years I'll hunt down a White Boss...
