320/annum for five years is not that much to pay for a red/black/whatever car, considering the other annual savings you would be making. Such as the 700/annum saving the government grant gives you.

True, but then again, 300 a year is what the average electric car owner spends on electricity, so one could argue opting for a white car offers them free fuel for five year haha.

And, if this weather becomes the norm, a white car will be the one to choose for the reflectivity.

Very true! Drove 28 miles home from my friends house last night at 10 pm. Was so hot I left the roof down on the Porsche, and I got to my town at 11 pm where it was still 28 degrees celcius. Didn't anticipate how much fun open top motoring can be late at night in the dark.

That was my favourite time for riding my bike. Finished work at 10 pm and a fast, warm run home in the early dark was great fun. Not so much fun on a snowy February night though!

I think unless I move somewhere with a very different climate I'm sticking with white cars from now on. Between the color and the excellent heat rejection of the 3M tint it's amazing how much less intolerable the temperature is even if the car has been sitting in the sun for a few hours.

I came back to my car, sitting in the sun for three hours, and before starting I set the ScanGauge to display the intake air temperature. It showed 41C (106F). And this is Scotland's East coast!
