Polar white here too. It worked out perfectly as the only xB they had on the lot with a 5 speed was white--- and that's what I wanted.

Why white?

1) I've never had a white car and I like white.

2) White doesn't show swirlmarks and every defect like dark colors do.

3) White is very easy to touch up (chips, scratches etc.)

4) I knew I'd be moving to Phoenix AZ for a new job, it's hot as hell there and with the xB basically being a big greenhouse on wheels strapped with the Echo's notoriously week A/C I couldn't take any chances, I don't want to roast. Darkest legal tint on all three sides and white was the only way to go.

Well I just got word from my guy at Scion that they have a Lava one coming in today.
Sweet mother of Gawd!! We were going to get black but man this is a tough decision.
Do I want the attention that comes with an Orange color?

Help

boxhead :
I think you should DEFINITELY go with the Lava. First of all, you're buying an xB--- you are going to get attention even if it's beige!

Second, the lava is more unique than most of the other colors (limited production I think) and it's just a rare color on cars in general.

No offense, I know a black car looks great when it's spotlessly clean and waxed and buffed, but 90% of the time it's not. Every bit of dust and pollen shows so the car always looks a little dirty. Unless you are extremely gentle washing and waxing you will get visible swirl marks.

Add to that the fact that black soaks in heat, maybe not a major issue if you're not living in the desert like me, but it's worth considering that the xB has the same A/C as the Echo despite having A LOT more space to cool and more glass letting sun in from every direction. Many Echo owners complain about the A/C being inadequate, so I'd imagine the xB's could be REAL hard to get cool in the summer.

Get the lava man, it's a more interesting color, it won't show dirt/swirl marks as much and looks good without having to be spotlessly clean like black. You'll stay cooler in summer and be thankful when you can rest your hand on the car after it's been in the sun without getting 3rd degree burns.

Thundercloud, i've always had a thing for silver cars. Also, new england has winter, which isn't kind to dark cars.

It's pure white, no metallic or irridescence or pearlness about it.

Works for me, I'm pretty happy with it. There are alot of great colors for this car though. The black cherry pearl is probably my favorite, I might have gone that way if it wasnt for the desert heat and the fact my last car was a dark color and I just got sick of obssessing over trying to get after every visible fingerprint, swirlmark etc. I also just wanted something very different color-wise than what i've had in the past. I've done burgundy, black, dark blue and dark green. White intrigued me and I liked the practical benefits.

Put me down for a camo. After months of wanting and waiting, I picked it up Tues from Longo Scion. What an incredible operation...very impressed.
