Hot Chocolate or Pepper White Clubman?

I'm absolutely desperate. This debate has been swirling in my head for two weeks...

chocolate clubman with either a chocolate or a black roof (w/sunroof)
or...
pepper white clubman with black roof/trim.

At first I thought chocolate, then the white, and then all of my friends thought the white was too 'girly' (I'm a 27 yr-old male) or 'dull' when I showed them the pictures, and the majority thought the chocolate was the cooler color. ...

Today I saw both variations at two different dealerships, and I adored them both.

Please vote now and save me from myself.

White will give you a much better re-sale value, brown is never a good colour to re-sell.

I've seen both in the flesh and both look really good. Tough choice

I thought the Brown would be a sunshine colour you know it would only work best when its clean and the sun is shining but having seen one in various states of grubbyness I would say it works well and looks smart whatever the weather. I am a PW owner partly out of cost saving the 270 squid for metallic helped me choose.

Can understand the tough choice, think both look good, but I'd be more edging towards the brown, as its real in colour for next year in fashion trends so I can see it staying popular for a while. But then there is also the fact that its an exclusive colour so that appeals to me too

Ordered my pepper white with hot chocolate lounge leather yesterday, so i'm biased (white is the new black apparantly). Hot chocolate is very very nice but i was worried whether it would still be fashionable next year or in 3 years etc..

Either way - it will be uber cool!
