I seem to be staying towards a 'in yer face' blue which I think will complement the Carbon interior and full cage.

 

The Ford blue on the ST Fiesta and ST Focus is this:

But until I see it in the flesh I'm still undecided.

 

I find my yellow is a strange one in the sense that in certain light it looks great and vibrant and then other lighting it seems to look a very cold yellow.....hard to explain?

 

When I placed the order all those years ago I can remember leaving Stoneleigh and thinking maybe I should've gone with Chrome yellow.

Yeah, that's one of the blues I like, Chrome yellow equally so.

Repair has come out really, really well. It will look different again, once painted and polished, and with an air filter sticking through it!

Liquid yellow is my fave yellow. My sis in law has a mustang in grabber blue and its a stunning colour. 

 

My car is 5015 and I wish I'd prob gone a shade darker now.

 

The perf blue on the mk 8 is a nice (but maybe a bit understated)

Or San Marino blue on the m3 m4 looks stunning.

@Steve (sdh2903)please don't put anymore colours in my head.....I'm confused enough as it is!

 

So yours is RAL 5015 then? 

 

That BMW San Marino is stunning!

 

I'm a nightmare with selecting colours....ask friends (and my wife!) who have seen me decorate a room after trying several tester pots only to go and repaint it all again 2 weeks later in a different shade/colour 🤔.

Steve, how would you describe the difference in RAL 5015 against the Sis in laws Mustang?

 

I appreciate its hard to describe but is this why you say you should've gone slightly darker blue after seeing the Grabber Blue?

You don't need to tell me I could have had any ral colour! Was a nightmare. Changed my mind a dozen times.

 

But yes mine is 5015.

This one is 5012 I think

The grabber blue was similar shade to be honest but with it being metallic/clearcoat it just had more flop and depth to it. On the mustang with black and carbon bits it was superb

 

Not her car but exact same. And it's a v8 with a borla exhaust. I hate her

It's the San Marino blue which would sway me to a darker colour. I'm trying to persuade the mrs I need an m3/m4 for my 40th (semi mid life crisis) next year. If it comes off I'm having that colour.

That was the line I got when I kept showing her different colours!

 

Am not a huge green fan but the 911 carries off python green

It would be easier if we just had the one choice....as Henry Ford said  "Any customer can have a car painted any colour that he wants, so long as it is black." 😉
