Colour choice on new car

Having to finalise the spec of my Octavia VRs, fiddled about with it so I now have:

Dynamic Damper Control
Simply Clever Pack
Keyless entry and start
Electric tailgate
DSG
Canton stereo upgrade

Originally decided on the metallic black but as I now have a black Clio 182 I really don't want another black car - choice was narrowed down to Moon White (metallic) of Meteor Grey (solid)

For some reason the VRs 245 has a much more limited colour choice (5) compared to the VRs 230

I have made a decision but what would you go for:

Meteor grey looks spot on in the metal IMO without the hassle of black

White, rather than battleship grey. IMO.
