WARNING: The LS430 on Ebay isn't Flint Mica. It's a Briarwood Pearl. It's a nice color, but nothing at all like a Flint. You can tell because it's too light in the sun, Flint is waaay darker. Also, Flint only comes with black or ash interiors.

I think you're right. The flint Mica has a bluish tint on it & the one on EBay doesn't.
I 've seen a Briarwood Pearl in person in the Autoshow and it has a pretty pronounced brownish tone to it , which doesn't look like the one in the EBay pictures, where one can barely detect the brownness. It's still very likely a Briarwood pearl though. That's why I said in my post above that pictures often don't depict the real color very well.

Only trouble with flint mica is you have to wah it or dust it frequently esp in pollen season in the South! I used a couple of coats of Wolfgang sealant and like the results( I am too lazy to wax every 1-2 months ). I prefer flint mica's look on a sunny day as the mica sparkles best then.
