Default What Color in swift VDi?Metallic Sunlight Copper or Pearl Metallic Arctic White. Poll

My friend has narrowed down his next car as Swift VDi.
He is very confused about which color to go for?

Although I told him its matter of personal choice, but he says he will go with the poll.

The two colors he is confused about are:
1. Metallic Sunlight Copper
2. Pearl Metallic Arctic White

For those who are not aware which color is Metallic Sunlight Copper. I have attached pictures of both colors. Metallic Sunlight Copper swift picture is picked from a thread on team-bhp. Its a new color in swift. Same as in SX4. Swift earlier had same shade, but that color was non-mettalic and lighter shade.

My reasoning:
Metallic Sunlight Copper - Good/Different/Exclusive color. Bad for resale, hard to maintain.
Pearl Metallic Arctic White - Tooooooo common, easy to maintain, good resale.

I still suggested him Metallic Sunlight Copper since all the cars I have owned/driven are either silver or white and for one, I, am personally pretty bored with white or silver.

If its a swift, it has to be white. No two ways about it. I own a silver, but would trade it for a white anyday.

Besides, sunlight copper will be tough to match in case painting a particular portion like the bumper etc is required. I also think that the color will be more prone to fading.

Resale should not be a big factor. I would rather enjoy the color of my choice for 5 years than get an extra 10k or so at the end of the car's life.

I would recommend White. It is good colour and the if he puts in the alloys, it will match better. The resale and the touch up (if required) will be easier and pretty easy to maintain. Go for white.

Silky Silver would be my choice any day. If im not wrong, Silver also happens to be a universal colour! My next choice though will have to be White. As to the colour
Sunlight Copper, well it looks kind of too rich a shade.

From the 2 you mentioned, I prefer the Meallic sunlight copper. Anyday, the white is difficult to maintain. Just my opinion.
White - Leave it to those cabs.

Metallic Copper. But hey, isnt this all such a grand waste of time?

I mean, sunlight copper has minimum 4 month waiting any which ways. white can be had a month before easily (delhi). Colors takes alot of sacrifice (tapasya!)

or if u have jugaad, please help me too

White. The Swift looks best in white, and that's just how it is

But frankly, when I was buying my Swift, the other colour I'd have settled for (if White would have entailed a really long wait) was Metallic Sunlight Copper.

Silver would have been my third choice.

To me, white swift looks delicious.
There is no doubt that white looks amazingly good.
Its just getting too common.
