Silver... FTW. That Grey color is way over played... The Silver is classic.

Black with gray wheels will give you the aggressive look, while silver will keep it a little classier. It all depends on which direction you are looking to go with your car.

Either way its gonna look good. If it were my choice, I'd go for the matte gray!

OK In all seriousness though, black car I'd go with the bright Silver. it's the contrast that I find interesting.

I am sure that the Grey would look good, but I think the Silver GTS would really 'pop'.

So, while I stand by my original post "Go with Silver", my real reasons are the contrast...

Silver, grey looks dirty and reminds me of test/mule vehicles.
