Finalized my deal today. Take delivery of my White Orchid Pearl Touring late next week. Very excited as it will be quite a change from my Pilot. Car will be delivered with Michelin X-Ice on steel rims. Storage is included for the factory tires and rims for two years.

Also in the deal is paint protection, all-weather mats and wheel locks.
Well it didn't happen! Really pissed. Car was to be delivered early in the week then prepped for delivery late this week. They're blaming the transport company. The Honda plant is about an hour and a half from the dealer. Had to put $20 in the Pilot gas tank today. grrrrrrrrr

We picked up our new WOP touring on Wednesday. The weather was nice on Friday so I gave her a wash, clay, polish, and seal. Sun came out today so I took some pics

@hondo great closeups! Probably just random chance but having your white fence and house in the background of some pics helps show how metallic white looks different than non-metallic white. :thumbsup:

Ha, good point. It does show the difference. It's definitely not a plain white car.

So the general consensus here is:

Taffeta White: Bleach white/flat/no flakes
White Orchid Pearl: Bleach white/metallic flakes?

I know the Bellanova White Acura uses on the ILX has a more creamy finish to it.

Bought a WOP Touring this weekend when I was back in my hometown for Thanksgiving. Here are a few initial shots of it - will post more once I have all the accessories (which will include the side spoiler) put on and it gets shipped out to CA from WI :)

Would like to see our WOP beside the Bellanova White. The Acura white has always caught my eye.

Haha, yup. I only had it for about an hour, though. Dropped it back at the dealer so they can finish it up. Believe they'll put a temp WI plate in it when it ships. You see people without any plate showing fairly frequently in California for new cars while they're waiting to get plates.

Looks great. How much more where your rims vs steelies? Did you do it through Honda? My WOP hasn't arrived yet and I'd prefer your rims over the steelies I've ordered.
