Joe Z just posted one of the reasons why I am on the fence regarding the ext color. I wish there would be a picture of both colors side by side in day light so I can make a decisive call. Time is running out...

So whats bugging you the most about it... ??

The closest live comparison is to find a local Absolutely Red IS300 or SC430...

From there you can try to compare to a Matador Red Mica IS to get a sense of how the "Pearl Red" will look or reflect in day light...

Granted the Pearl Red is not the same as Matador Red Mica.

The Absolutely Red has no mica or no pearl in it what so ever..


I am sucker for Grays..
My old IS300 was Graphite Gray Pearl and my recent IS's have both been Smoky Granite Mica (1G0) or Pearl Gray on the LFA..

Dunno. I love the metallic-ness of that red. Makes it stand out so much more than the other red available (see my scans of SLS AMG vs LFA for the other red Euro prototype pictures).

It just that the Pearl Red looks better in the color kit, but the actual red LFA in the pictures and video has me drooling. I don't believe we have any pics of a Pearl Red LFA in daylight yet.
