For those that have picked up a Genesis Sedan or plan on picking one up, what is you color of choice?

I will pick up a jet black sedan. Have always been a fan of a really dark deep black on cars after a fresh wax

Adam,

I've uploaded some photos, check my album in my public profile. White is nicer than I thought. Windows seem to be very lightly tinted by default. I plan in the next few weeks to get the clear bra and tinted windows. Trying to decide if I want to do the Stainless Door Pillars. They look really cool on a dark car. MAy not show up on white.

Thanks, she is quite nice. I am very annoyed that sometime in the first week someone apparently opened a door into it and left a dimple. Luckily its not too noticeable, except to me. Please post some pix of the coupe when you have a chance.

Ouch, I hate door dings so much!

So do the stainless steel pillars just snap on over the factory ones or do you have to glue them, or how exactly do they work. I am interested in the black Genesis sedan and think the chrome pillars would look great!

I am not that big on color as much as I am on the ride and feel of the car. In that case I will just pick the easiest color to keep clean.

The pillar covers come ready to peel off the backing and stick on. From what I've heard you have to clean the area thoroughly with alcohol pads. Chrome does look great on the dark Genny.

Color choice

For those that have picked up a Genesis Sedan or plan on picking one up, what is you color of choice?
I doubt that the color I chose for my 2010 3.8 Tech will be chosen by many others. For me, dark colors are out—they take too much washing and polishing, and they can be 30°–40° hotter inside after being parked in hot sun. I'm past the age of showing off and into the age of being practical.

A metallic pearl white looks great, but that's what I've had before, and what my wife has now, and I'm kind of tired of it. So I picked Champagne Beige Metallic.

A black Genesis sedan was my choice of color.

Rich - I see you mentioned you have wings on your car...I'm not sure what that means?

Your sedan color choice

I really like the Cabernet red pearl exterior with a cashmere beige leather interior with dark woodtrim dash & doors of my 2009 Genesis V6.

Very interesting color choice.

How has the car been for keeping it clean, does it hide the dirt and dust well?

Hi.....and Happy New Year 3.8 Liter,

Unfortunately, the Cabernet red pearl color is like a burgandy color. It is a dark color so the dirt and dust shows-up a little more than a light colored car.

But regardless, I am happy with my choice and would do the same today. See attached photo when the vehicle is clean.
