Default Go Pro Hero3 Black Vs Silver?

Hey guys just wanted to get some input from everyone here as I am part of many forums and the wealth of knowledge is the best here . I just am about to pick up a go pro and have a few questions. I am going to use this camera for taking videos of it on my SRT8 jeep at the track and road, and also racing my RXP jet ski on the lake. Heres my question:

I am not going to take any really crazy fancy videos and most of mine will be for sounds.

Is it worth to save 100 bucks and buy a silver edition instead of black if I am not making like pro grade videos? I really want something to get a quality video but not like professional level or anything now, can pick up a black later if thats the case and I get into it a ton.

I have seen a few videos online comparing the silver and black and the differences did not seem too be too huge?

Any responses welcome and glad to be part here, cant wait to contribute more!

I've just bought black, simply because it's about the same price as silver + the remote, which comes with the black. I will use it for whitewater canoeing, so if it's mounted at the end of the boat, I'll need the remote, guess it depends on where you're going to mount it.

thats a good point. I kayak and didn't think hard enough when I bought my silver just a few days ago. what also made me choose the silver was that I was reading that the black was having freezing up problems. so now I am hoping the silver will meet my needs which are limited at best.
