I, then, ran into the issue of not having money to purchase a new vehicle (and I was afraid I may get sick of a truck), so I fell into the leasing trap. My second vehicle was an ext. cab Ranger with a dark blue color, my third Ranger was Silver, and my fourth Ranger was again white. When I unexpectedly needed a vehicle again, the colors were very limited, but I did find the current DSG ext. cab. I guess that I got used to getting new vehicles every 3 years that it didn't matter much on color, and now that I've had the 08' since July/August 07', it is wearing on me.
hmm i think I understand, I havent had a vehicle for more then 3 yrs either, hopefully I dont get tired of black, I am annoyed with it always looking dirty already though

Yes, black and blue are the worst to keep clean. The color blue I had was Wedgewood Blue, and it was an awesome color when clean. In correct light, it had a blue/purple tint to it, but when dirty it showed every speck of dirt. Some say white is the hardest to keep clean, and I heavily disagree. One of the bright spots about having DSG is that it isn't too terribly hard to keep clean.

I dont think the fact that my first car was white influenced me on my choice, I just like the look of white with the low maintenance of it plus black and white is full of win

I hate the fact that I had to put stock seats back in and I'm still riding on stock shocks up front.

No room, rough ride, not easy on gas. I have no power options, no cruise control, and my seats are an awful grey that are so easy to stain. But really at the end of the day, I love my truck, and I wouldnt trade it for any other vehicle out there.
