Hi!!! I am new here. Stumbled across this forum. I am ordering a 2011 2LT Equinox tomorrow. It will be a FWD with a V-6 engine. I am getting the black leather interior. But........I just can't decide on the exterior color. I love a black car.....but when I saw the black graphite metallic, I liked that also. They are so similar.....and yet slightly different in the sun. I currently have a jet black 2004 Monte Carlo, and was sold on the black, but the metallic is good looking. I have changed my mind so many times......tomorrow I seal the deal and need to pick the color. A friend said the metallic would not show scratches and dirt so quickly? What do you think? Thanks!!
