This was so funny, I fell out of my chair laughing.



I remember the days everyone was nay-saying Chrome Orange and Krypton Green. Hmmm... how things have changed.

I got my Chilli Red car on Sat. and it's gorgeous. It's not pink, "faded" Ardent, or AB/AR merged. Even in full sunlight, the car looks EXACTLY like AR until you are a few feet away; then the car looks AR with orangish red highlights in areas where direct sun is hitting it. In lowlight, it looks like AR that someone sprinkled gold-glitter on.

It is awesome and for whatever reason does NOT photograph well.

Seems to be a common theme for the Life Style colors. CO and KG are also very difficult to capture with pictures...

I'll try to take some pictures that are as "true-to-life" as possible this weekend.

It does not look like this. For whatever reason, these pics are VERY distorted. In fact, these pics scared me before I picked up the car because it looks

Is it as metallic as it looks in that picture of the hardtop? Sweet! I agree with others-pics don't do CO and especially KG justice. KG in person is stunning! Maybe "tomato soup" is the same way. J/K

I have seen 1 Aztec Bronze in person. It was a beautiful color, unfortunately the owner did not care about his car and it had damage from misuse everywhere.
