Default Silver Pine Mica?

Is Silver Pine Mica the Hot (Cool) color for 2006? Is easy to keep clean? I really think I like SPM w/ bisque leather. What do you think?

No on the bisque interior...way too hard to keep clean. Nice exterior color, though. Does it come with the gray interior? If so, go for that!

We've got the Silver Pine Mica with Bisque interior and love it. It looks really sharp.

Is it leather or cloth? I would think leather easier to keep clean, but what do I know.

SPM looks great in the catalog but in person to me it looks a little femme. If you are a gal it might be great- but no dude should have one unless they put a rainbow sticker on it.

Everyone should get in touch with their femine side every once in awhile. I really like the color.

Like everything- its all personal preferences. In So Cal I don't see many SPM out here- seems like Black and Silver are the most popular.

I had mixed feelings about SPM after I had already ordered the car last October, and hadn't actually seen it in person. When I saw the first one (before my car arrived) I thought it was a bit too green and not enough silver.

Now that I have 20% tinted windows, I've really come around to liking the color a lot, and get many compliments.

It's obviously a very personnel choice, and shouldn't be influenced by others...

Cheers!

I remember the days when the green Prius wasn't really green. Enjoy it!
