Hello. I am choosing between Brilliant Blue and Selenite Grey. Any pictures of your cars when they are a bit dirty as I know some colours don't look great unless they are clean and polished!! I probably prefer the grey but found a blue one which is significantly cheaper. Any help is much appreciated. Thx, Rox

Welcome rmac, can you please add your location to your profile so we know where you are.

My car is Selenite and hardly ever gets cleaned and never polished, really good at not showing the dirt, will post a couple of photos tomorrow.

Bear in mind the resale value of a non popular colour! There’s a reason why the brilliant blue is at a better price.

Thanks for your response, I am in Dorset,
UK (not sure how to update my profile). My current car a tiguan is grey and it's been great. I do like the blue but fear I will tire of it, especially if I plan to keep the car for 5 years!

Whatever colour you chose, the salesman will be telling you it is not a popular colour when you come to trade it in. Just go with the colour that floats your boat. If keeping a clean car is your thing then both will look stunning when fettled although the Selenite Grey is generally more synonymous with prestige brands. Here's the colour trend numbers for UK vehicles from 2016 although indications are that greys are now making a stronger comeback:

Rmac, click on user cp at top of page and then click edit your details on left of next page you can edit your information.

I am also in Dorset (Ferndown), the problem is that MB don't have a great choice of colours for their cars. I really like the selenite but when I change would want another colour and Brilliant blue is the only other colour I like but as I don't want to be cleaning the car regularly would be concerned about the blue showing the dirt.

As Toobad says go for the colour you like.

Go for the Grey.

I quite like being the only (??) Brilliant blue GLC in Dorset!!

🙂

As for resale, wouldn't worry too much. Dealers like having a selection. So if they already have a forecourt full of grey, it could impact the grey trade in price.

Haha, funnily enough there was a blue one parked outside my house (quiet road) this wknd, but drove off just as I noticed it!

Turned out the blue was advertised without VAT, so made my decision easier! Just ordered the grey and picking it up this weekend!

I had a GLC43 coupe loaner for a day in brilliant blue, the day was a bit rainy and by the end of the day the car was filthy, when I ordered my car I chose Iridium Silver purely because I thought it would be an easy colour to live with.

Iridium silver doesn’t show dirt and looks clean most of the time.
