      I feel like I'm very close to ordering a 2017 Mustang but I can't decide on the colour combo.

      and apparently I don't know how to make a poll

      Grabber blue with black racing stripes
      White with black racing stripes

      Grabber Blue. I love white cars, but the new Mustang just looks right in Grabber Blue.

      I wouldn't ask other people which color they prefer, mainly because it's a personal thing. What some like, others will believe sucks. Just go with what makes you happy.

      Unless you're colorblind and need info on a presentation graphic color scheme, it certainly can hurt to listen to others about a color your going to live with.

      And that's why I say with all seriousness, white with dark blue stripes. And don't get black wheels...

      Blue, no stripe.

      I saw a really nice bright orangey red one with chrome (possibly aftermarket) wheels. And I fell in love.

      Grabber Blue is the only answer until they put Avalanche on non-GT350s. But...

      You can't go wrong either way, but my vote is for blue, no stripes.

      how do you not include pictures? are these close?

      grabber blue:


      vs.

      Grabber blue w/ white stripes:


      vs.

      white:


      vs.

      white w/ black stripes:




      between those options: grabber blue w/ no stripe. what about GBlue w/ black stripe to match wheels and aero?


      or Gblue w/ black roof and matching aere, wheels, and 'tints'.

      Mrs. Mustard agrees: 1st choice - Grabber blue no stripe; 2nd choice - grabber blue w/ black stripes (if car has black wheels/aero).

      I love the grabber blue, I don't know if I could live with it on a daily basis though.

      As stated I love the green, but apparently discontinued. White looks too meh on the stangs. I really love the dark grey as well.

      If you can wait for a bullit...do it.

      White, no stripes, black roof, and 20s. White GTs arent really that common, let alone with a black roof and 20s



      The lack of metallic makes grabber look cheap when it's dirty.

      Grabber blue vs white is like asking Jennifer Lawrence vs Rosie O'Donnell.

      See OP, you don't want grabber blue. Everyone and their mom wants/has it, evidenced by this thread.

      Go for the clean white one.
