See how many they have in stock of each color. The white will always be popular and might not haggle as much as the blue if they had like 5 in stock. I got the bronze and the sales person was so happy because she had bronze in stock and was "motivated" to sell this color.

White is always going to look clean!
Blue is pretty pimpalisious too!

Yes white is ss not sure how it holds up. Blue ds. I'm sure it shows some of the imperfections, not sure if it would show any more then the silver/gray vehicles I've had. But has to be better then the black ,,, have seen many say Toyota paint is soft or inferior to others.
