I really like the orange... But thats just me.. The tan is very nice as does not show dirt or dust as easy as silver or black. The white looks classy to me.

You should ask her what color she likes, that's the best color for her vehicle
Try here: http://www-5.jeep.com/vehsuite/ModelSelector.jsp

I think, that black looks good, but needs washing often.
White may show in long term perspective more easily out some rust, when paint is damaged somewhere...

Try looking up in the "sticky's" in the Owners Picture threads and see what you like. Personally, I like any color with dirt on it.

Silver with mud as high as the tires will throw it looks really good.

Jeep Green or Black

Stay away from Smurf Blue (my friend just ordered his 08 Patriot in that color - ugh)

White is a nice colour, but sensitive....here in Germany you say it looks female. I`ll prefer black with some chrome accessories.

But if you go with black the corner lights will stand out and you'll want to pant them black. Red goes with everything, including my temper.

The shape of the Compass requires strong colors:
Limited:
Black
Red
Orange
Green

Std:
Red
Orange
Black
Green

Silver looks good with black accents or in the Rally wrapper...

The Patriot looks OK in most colors, but much better with the window venting covers. (They make the windows appear taller...)

The interior color is MORE important than the exterior color. The darker (charcoal) looks the best right now. This will probably change as Chrysler releases more updates...

I gotta go with what we ordered...I like the metallic tan, and personally think the brown interior looks better than the grey.
