    Looking at some leftover 19's at a dealer. Stuck on colors. White, Black, Mag. I like Leadfoot but in direct sunlight IDK doesn't do it for me. I like one of the blues, but not really for me.

    All are 802A options with Pano, Rear heated seats, step bed.

    Black and Mag have the Tech Package, Beadlocks and Carbon....The Tech I dont care for and carbon looks cool but dont care either way. The deadlocks look sharp!

    Anyway, this is my thoughts.

    Black: Looks Mean! but PIA to keep clean and gets hot. Wife had a black Explorer sport and its always gross. I have 2 young kids so I dont think I can keep up with it at this point.

    Mag: Probably my fav color on any vehicle, but Ive had 3 in the past that color (Q5, Tacoma and Jetta) Kinda want something different and I dont know how I feel the bead locks look on it....whole thing is like 1 color. Also, I think every Raptor I see is black or Mag.

    White: Sporty, makes everything pop. I work in oil and gas so every truck is white, easy to clean, looks sharp. Cant decide if id get bored or not with it.

    If I went white I think I would try to get the bead locks....Just looks solid with dark wheels.

    Thoughts!

    Went white and added some black headlamp and taillight decals etc. Like the pop between the white exterior and accents, wheels, etc and is sporty yet refined looking.

    I'm still mourning the death of lightning blue.

    See if the dealer will swap the beadlocks to the white truck to make a deal, if all are at the same dealer

    Lead foot and white were the two colors that normally would have drawn me in, but, as soon as I saw one in Performance Blue, I knew that was it.

    It’s a very dynamic color. In the right light, it looks like an HDR photo to the naked eye.

    Lead foot was my biggest disappointment in person. The blueish tint to it when light hit it was odd to me. Before it came out I was expecting it to be like a dove grey. Wasnt for me..
    So my 3yo picked the RR. If not the RR it would have been the Mag for me. But All my other cars are Mag.

    Mag benefits from already being color match to bumpers and fenders. Personally my fav.
    But they are all awesome

    good luck

    I just bought a 2020 earlier this week. Traded in my 2014 in Tuxedo black.

    At one time, I though of Tuxedo black--a black with a lot of coarse greenish and blueish metallic--as an ideal color. But over time I felt like just a plain deep black would have been better. I gravitate toward the darker colors and usually prefer a dark gray or charcoal. This lead to me to Magnetic when I decided to trade. It also has metallic, but its a little more fine, subtle, and a more consistent silverish color, which complemented the dark gray well. However, I ultimately went with Agate Black, which is a clean, deep black with no metallic; but this was purely due to inventory and the deal I got (another dealer had Magnetic on their inventory spec'd out the way I wanted it, but it wasn't due in for several more months. Another dealer had Agate Black and offered it at $5k off MSRP with a limited lifetime power train warranty... so I went with the black. ZERO regrets.

    Yeah I was always drawn to the MAG but now I'm getting closer to pulling the trigger, I feel I've been there and done that. I am also not sure how I feel everything MAG looks....The White is the cheapest based on options and sticker discount. Id just need to find the bead locks.

    Someone mentioned blue and its a sweet blue! Just not for me.

    Agree with the Avalance moment....there was a AG at my gym the other day and it looks better than Leadfoot IMO.
