Having a really hard time debating between these two colors. Anyone have any feedback and perhaps pictures they could show of the differences? There are times I think Titanium looks fantastic and then there are times I like the classiness that Silver provides....

If it helps for you guys to provide feedback, I'd be getting the GT model w/GFX and Cloth Seats...

Thanks,

50% of all Mazda 3's you will see on the road are Ti Gray, so if you want to be different get a silver. Also a silver with tints and those big 17'' wheels makes it look REALLY cool! I saw one at my autoshow. I actually considered silver, but my dad has a silver Matrix and having 2 of the same would kind of suck. Therefore I choose to get the Orange! :lol:

I tried to get a fully loaded 5 door in Lava Orange and the dealer couldn't find one within a 5 state radius of Texas. Nobody had one.

I went with titanium gray in the end... I figure it will be easier to get rid of a classy color than a wild color.

It's funny you say that since silver has been the #1 new car color for the past 2 yrs... :shock:

True, but I wouldn't have that problem since I am leasing it and they "HAVE TO" take it back! :D | HAHAHAH!

As you saw in the media forum, most likely, I have pictures of my silver 3 with tint, and personally, I think its the best color that their is. And the tint just makes just gives it an even better look. I highly recommend this color, its pretty easy to keep clean too, another plus.

I am having to make the same decision as yourself; at times I feels the titanium looks classy, and I always wanted a "titanium color" car, but when I saw the silver I thought it had a very nice sparkle to it that the titanium didn't have. The other negatives are that the Titanium doesn't look good dirty, and my mom thinks the color looks flat :) ( No comments about me being a mamas boy :lol: ). UHHH DECISIONS!! :wink:

Yeah, I agree w/ the Mama's boy :p the titanium just doesn't have any sparkle to it. The silver is very nice looking, but I think I'm still leaning towards the white (partially b/c no one has it)!

I had a black car previously, so the silver has been great for keeping clean. I also considered titanium, but when I saw the silver in person (coming off the truck), it was an easy choice. I like the white too, but at the time I'd never seen one. White and silver would be my two choices if I had to buy the car all over again.

i found the titanium also a bit dull and without sparkle.

the silver was ok...but....at the dealership....they set it right next to the old protege and the color was exactly and same and i felt that it reminded me of the protege too much and ppl would think it's a protege i'm driving.....

just my thoughts..

the silver looks ok, but with black leather seats the titanium really looks quite classy. i have to search what the leather seats in america look like, as in australia they are currently a dealer fitted option...

it is written that there are less accidents for silver cars... more so than white ;)

I actually was really liking the titanium until I saw it in person and then switched to my current silver/black/white confusion.

I like Tit grey better than silver, I tried ordering a Tit grey sport, but they didn't have any stock left back then so I went with the blue, but one more thing you might want to consider is that Tit grey and silver have different interior colors on the cloth seats :)

Is that a Canada thing b/c US spec cars have red/black on both silver and titanium?

oops, sorry, that's only for the Sport, Silver sport comes with red/black and Tit grey has blue/black, for the sedan, it's blue/black for both silver and tit grey

I was convinced I wanted Titanium Grey after looking at pictures online, but when I saw one in person (that had just been washed - in lots of sunlight) I changed my mind because there was no sparkle. Like someone said above it looked flat. Because of that, I decided on blue.
