Shadow blue is the best color IMO, but god damn if that yellow marker doesn't look absolutely terrible against the blue lol

losing the orange is one of the first things I did.

I dislike SB in this light (looks too purple)



Love it in this light (starts to look black)

Part of what I love about my Shadow Blue is the way the color varies depending on the light.
It can take on a purplish/black in some low light levels.
When it is clean and in the sun (see the Hooters Girl pics above) it can look heavily metallic.
Matter of fact, since I picked up my car in late Dec. and only ran out to it in the morning to take it to the train - only to get into it in the dark at the end of the day, I didn't realize just how metallic the car is 'till the temps started to warm up and I was able to get a better look at the car in the sun!

OK, you guys are right! Looking closer at my pic (and not the girls) that orange marker does look like crap. Guess I'll order the smoked one!

Some shadow blue with a little bit of CW. My camera is really horrible but it definitely looks better after this wash and wax than the day I picked it up.
