+$500 for the Rosso Brilliante and the Bianco Perla. Anyone opt for these? Are they worth it?

It's not about "worth it". Either you like the colors and you'll pay for them, or you'll pick another color because you want to bank $500. It's that simple.

Well, no, not exactly.

I've seen both Bianos and Biano Perlas on the lot... and the difference between the two colors is subtle, at least to my eyes.

Ditto for Rosso vs. Ross Brilliante.

Is there something about the premium colors that makes them cost $500? Do they hold up better? More coats of paint?

I believe its 2 stage vs 3 stage paint if you want to get technical, the difference being a layer of pearl with the existing base + clear. go to a FIAT studio during the day and look at both side by side if you are considering either. Its really a matter of preference.

Does the third stage make the paint more resilient, or does it add some aspect to the color?

Aspect to the color. It's also makes it more fun to match if you ever need paintwork.

There is a definite difference between the two whites and reds in the bright sun as well as in the dark with a light shining on them like in a parking lot. I drive a Rosso Briallante and my wife drives a Bianco Perla.

In the end it's a matter of preference, if you don't find a difference in them enough to justify the price then go for the non metallic.

this is also something to consider. I remember going to a vw show and seeing a corrado shot with house of kolor kameleon get crunched by a guy from the same car club. ouch!
My buddy just got a civic in because it was painted with House of kolors with a process now he is repainting the whole car. Some type of blue paint.
The car's door got scratched.

I got the Bianco Perla, I say it is well worth the $500, cause I already paid :D
Not sure about the technical and the number of layers. It is just pleasure to the eye, at least to my eye :cool:

WHAT?! White and Pearl White aren't even close! Pearl White has a beige tone to it.

That's why I wanted regular white. My Audi is a pearl grey/blue and it's a ***** to fill in a chip.
