It's just a craze. It'll pass.

I'd take white over silver any day, though.

Whites a bit too in your face for me.

Mind you though some cars look stunning in white.

White was my choice because I paid. I'll send you my bank account details then you can choose next time.

Wow, he only asked what's the obsession with white cars, as in, why do people seem to like them so much.

Nobody said you shouldn't have chosen white, or you made a bad choice.

Why don't you be constructive and contribute, - explain what it is you like about it, and what made you choose it?

I've driven loads of white cars, none of them looked like a "rental". They all looked like police cars.............. Neee Naaar.

No.....but he did say they looked like `rentals`. A little derogatory if you have a white one don't you think ?

People say they don't like black or silver because they are `safe` colours.
Ask yourself that when you come to sell. ? They always sell.

No I don't think describing it as rental is at all derogatory? Is it not a nice car if you've rented it?

However you've interpreted describing it as a rental, it's still the OPs opinion, and some are quick to chastise if they're not allowed their opinion.

I personally think silver or white cars look like taxis, but maybe that's because Manchester city council only allow white or silver private hire cars, so pretty much every E class I see in those is a taxi. Is that derogatory?

I've only ever had one white car and as I like to keep my cars clean I became annoyed that it looked dirty within 5 minutes of leaving the house everytime I washed it. Hated white cars ever since and would walk away from buying any white car.
