Super Silver will probably be the best resale color. DMG and black seems to be popular as well.

From what I've deduced on this site, Gun Metallic is by far the most ordered color in the States. Though, that would also make it the easiest to find pre-owned. I agree, the silver upcharge will demand the highest resale value.

most ordered color in the US is black then white


best resell color i think would be super silver because of the 25% constraint on it and the premium price

I've always believed in getting the color 'You' like the most rather than worry about resale.

I would say Super Silver Metallic would be the highest value due to the fact it was a $3k option, and not a ton of them were ordered compared to Black/White/Gun (which the market will be flooded with - relatively speaking ) Silver is a color that most people like, whereas black is a turn off for many because it's hard to keep clean. We shall see!

I wonder if my car will come before the car ahead of me. Both cars were ordered on Feb 6th, however, my car was number 2 in line. The first car is super silver and my car is gun metal. I read on here that the super silver cars take longer to complete. Maybe that means my car will come first. The dealer sent me a screen shot of the nissan dealer portal and it has my ETA listed as 07/08.

Any thoughts?

It is interesting the difference in colour preference in the States versus the UK.

Black Editions are being sold at the highest price, only these Black edition cars will be available in Kuro Black and retail for a few K more at 57.4k British Pounds.

From speaking to my stealer (Not a typo) Black is outselling other colours in Scotland by 2:1

White is the new black if you look at the likes of BMW and Audi with lots of them on the road. I have ordered The Black Edition, but must admit i was tempted by the white.

It's the same color, just a different name. Super Silver is called Ultimate Silver on this side of the pond. In Holland we could order the black edition only in black or silver, and they didnt allow you to buy the standard or premium version in silver. Now it has all changed again and you can order every version in every color. Or so it seems from the website. Asking Nissan is pointless as they are clueless.

I think if you are reselling then go with silver. Black is a love/hate thing. I plan on getting black because I won't drive it all day. Plus I have three sons, and when the oldest gets to be 11 or 12, the car is either getting locked up so only I know where the key is, or its going to grandpas house.

I only look for black cars so probably black would be the most demanding. Black looks good on any sports car.
I know some guy offered me 45,000 for my Z at a gas station one time because he said that he couldnt find a Z in my condition with the power that I had with a 5speed that had original paint. I told him to get lost. This is my baby!
