Hmm. I've seen both. I would say a clean looking black 1LE, just being washed is amazing. Clean and very sleek looking(especially at dusk). White on the other hand stands out, especially considering the black vinyl hood on any given day or time. Another beautiful color.
Each one has its pros and cons, just depends on what you like. I was also torn between the 2 colors as well as BRM. Needless to say I went with the BRM. My favorite color is white btw. I attached two 1LEs I was looking at locally. Hope this helps...
