Wow...I've seen the MSP orange in person (but not CO) and I thought the Mazda's orange was pretty darn good!! Some sort of pearly/metallic thing going on with it. I wonder if some of these fancy colors might prove hard to paint match or fade weird or something.khamai said:I've seen the Mazdaspeed orange...
IMHO the Elise CO is MUCH better!!!
yep, that's the color. I'm not sure how close CO is to this Gallardo, but this is the color I want. I'm afraid CO will look like a pumpkin orange vs. a bright orange like the GallardoGromit said:This is closer ...
The inside of this car is real nice. It uses orange stiching. Thinking about doing the same on the Elise ...
If the paint colour chips are a good indication, then CO is almost exactly the same as the Gallardo. I haven't seen a chrome orange elise yet, so can't say for sure.shay2nak said:yep, that's the color. I'm not sure how close CO is to this Gallardo, but this is the color I want.
i would appreciate that, Vantage. thanks! Is it easy to repaint the body of the Elise? Maybe i can get away with ordering yellow or red, then pay extra to repaint the car with Gallardo's paint.Vantage said:Shay,
I have a close up photo of chrome orange on an Esprit I can post for you tonight. It shows the hint of metallic/pearl in the finish very well. 5 megapixel size too (with an okay digi cam), so you can get a good idea.
The Gallardo has a very high pearl content, so on the corners and in the direct sun, the edges take on a yellowish tint akin to how an actual pearl looks. In the showroom under low lighting, they difference is more subtle, but the Gallardo definitely glows more. Many of us San Diego ETers saw them both on the same day on our Symbolic meet with the LA Club.
lol =) I take it you've tried it. Should I ask why ..Ancient Wedgie said:Sorry Stan. This Mazda Orange recalls for me all the characteristics of MinuteMaid Orange Soda with a little milk added.
Try it and see what I mean!
It's not a bad color, but it is no Chrome Orange.
Well, by the time you get as old as I, you've run into your share of accidents. May yours all be as innocuous as this one.Gromit said:lol =) I take it you've tried it. Should I ask why ..
