I completely agree. XLR is one of the few out there that I wouldn't say looked too loud with full body paint. Also, the only company that makes a color scheme with no real colors. Black Pearl is black, silver, and gray. I like it from a purist standpoint. When I mentioned to my dealer about substituting colors I thought it would be a quick NO. In 5 minutes he emailed me back and told me you all said sure, let us know what the customer wants and we'll get it done! I was pretty surprised and jumped on the opportunity. Mine is going to be two Ford colors I really like. Ingot Silver metallic and Magnesium metallic. I skipped the black and just used the Magnesium both where the XLR gray was and where the XLR black was. Silver stayed where it was. I preferred not having black for a couple of reasons. First, it shows dirt and scratches more than any other color. Second, it will soak up the sun more too. My old saying was, black is the best looking color on a vehicle bar none when it's clean. The problem is, it's never clean... Anyways, can't wait to see it. Ford's metallics have real depth so I'm sure it will be eye catching...
