Blue was my second choice (to black) but I went with it anyway, because I have lived with black vehicles before and they are a pain to keep looking clean and highlight every scratch and blemish. The blue is a metalic color which, and this is personal preferance, I think look better than non-metalics.
My EOP order is Black, but now that Pontiac has a picture of Blue on their website I am confused. Blue was tied with black when I put in my EOP order with the dealer, but he talked me out of blue saying it was too dark. The pictures make it look lighter than I thought. I wish they would have used a lighter metallic blue (kinda like the 350z but not that light). I also would have liked to have seen a metallic candy apple red (kinda like cheever3000's picture in the gallery, only more red!). Instead I took black. I'll have to be extra careful not to get any scratches and of course it will always be clean.
I am currently leasing a car now, but this will be the first brand new car I buy. I think GM has finally got it right again! Hopefully Solstice is a sign of things to come.
