We have ordered a Starlight Silver EX-L RES from a dealer (because that was the only color on our list that was coming in within the time frame we had) but got a call from another local dealer that he had gotten an unexpected Granite Green EX-L RES in today. That was also on our list of colors. Give me your opinions on the pros and cons of the colors if you have any.
Thanks!

We have a silver and love it - no problems with the paint that I can tell.

The pros to silver
lighter color
less around
cons
some people have problems with the paint (splotches and swirls)

The pros on GG
it's in stock
nice color

Cons
too many of them around (at least here


They are both nice colors.

Really up to you...we were in the same position. I would have gone for a Mesa Beige or a Granite Green or a Starlight Silver. Turned out I could get the silver the earliest, so it's in my garage now.

No paint issues, I really like the color!

Obviously it's a personal opinion but..
Just picked up a EX-L in GG and love the color. It's really more of a blue/gray in my opionion. The interior is a lot greener than the exterior but the combo is nice.

We love our GG Ody. I do see more GG Ody's on the road in my area than any other color. Good luck.

We got the silver one and love it, no paint problems here too. GG was our second choice but we were not sure about the leather colour. The quartz leather is very nice and from what i hear the fern leather is nice too. Someone said it was like the dash board colour. never saw it but if it is, that would look good too. The GG exterior colour is alot nicer in my mind to the SS. Good choice on getting the RES though, we love ours and it sure makes those 2 hour waits heading south from canada alot more bearable. good luck. Ken

I'd get the Granite Green, even if it is more common - I like the way it looks like it changes colors depending on the light. It could look bluish, greenish, or gray under different circumstances. Also, I think it may hide dirt better, but that's just my opinion.

My personal opinion of the Silver is that it only looks good under bright sunlight and when the van is not dirty. I also think it shows dents and imperfections more than the Granite Green.

Couldn't tell you about the interior fern in leather, since we have it in cloth.

Our salesman made a funny comment when I was picking up my Starlight Silver Odyssey. He said that the detail guys buy the salesman a pop when they sell a silver car or van. When the salesman sells a dark colored car/van they buy the detail guy a case of pop...

Kinda humorous.
