    I imagine grey cars have more accidents than electric blue, they blend with the road.

    I’d choose blue because soooo many cars are grey.

    Also, blue cars are slightly less likely to be crashed into than grey ones.

    It’s also pretty.

    You are overthinking this.

      I’ve never heard of picking a car color based on your age (or that blue is too flashy for that matter – shall we all gasp in horror at all my friends in their mid-30s and 40s driving red cars or my uncle in his late 60s driving a yellow car?).  You’re not wearing the car to a gala – it is getting you from point A to point B.  Pick whatever color you like best.  And if you have no strong preference then get the blue since your husband seems to have a strong preference.

    Personality doesn’t have to be set in stone. You can be free to live a little too. You can still be a simple, earthy girl with a bright cool car.

    Have fun! Choose “cooler”; the “something special” over “timeless, ages well, nothing special”. You’re 35, not dead.

    Like the others have said, hopefully, in a bright blue car you would have less chance of someone not seeing you. Do pick a colour because of age – it’s a car- pick which one makes you happy.

    I like the gray myself. The contrast on the bumper of the blue model isn’t my style. But get what you love! There is no wrong answer!

    Blue! I had a grey car for years and now our car is white (fiancé’s choice). How boring! The blue is more fun and will be easier to spot in the parking lot 🙂

    Your husband is quite right about the color. I had the M3 V8 in a special edition blue. Less than 700 of them out there. Sadly we decided to leave the car in Europe as it’s would have been a waste of Fahrvergnügen in the US with all the speed limits. 

    have you seen the color irl? I think that’s the deciding factor. Look at it and your gut will tell you what you want. My first though was grey but then I got thinking… hard to say. I have the X4 in black and the only other color for that car I’d choose is matte black. 
    hmmm my comment isn’t very helpful I guess 😂

    To me it sounds like you’re kind of hesitant with the blue and feel more comfortable going with the grey!

    I generally stick to neutral colours for everything, and if I get anything in a colour it’s usually a dark, muted colour or a jewel tone. I understand wanting to get the blue, because it IS really pretty, but being hesitant about whether you’ll like it for a long time or get tired of it. 

    The blue looks fun and more sporty to me, and the grey looks a bit more boring but more “elegant” if that makes sense. I definitely don’t think the blue car looks too young, though.

    Another perk of the blue is that it’ll be much easier to find in a parking lot!

    If you love the blue, get the blue! Have you seen them in person, though? The grey in person is super cool and that is the color of my car! I have had my car for 8 years and no wrecks, so I have no idea why people are saying it will “blend in with the road” (wtf? its a car that is moving, people can see it, I see cars that color all the time and have no problem hitting one of them). But get whatever makes you happy! If you like the blue car, go for it! It’s not a super out there color.

    I do have a friend that sells cars and he was showing me a burnt orange car that was traded in that day. He said they actually gave him less on the trade in because it was such a specific color. If you were looking at a burnt orange or lime green or something, then yes, I would say worry about the trade in value. But blue? It is a very normal/standard color!

    Blue. It’s pretty and it’s way more visible on the road. I like to be easily seen when I’m driving in the rain/snow. Besides, there’s more than enough boring gray cars on the road!

    mrsbjj17 :  I’m boring and my car is a similar shade to the gray you are considering, so I prefer that. The shade of blue that you’re considering is too jarring for my tastes. I really like the way my vehicle looks and didn’t even consider other colors though, so whatever makes you happy is all that matters.
