I recently had a chance to see finished cars and colours a second time following a trip to the MPC where you get fairly mesmerised by all the colours in one place.

These are my thoughts on seeing them a second time

Ice Silver. This is a light/whitish silver that really changes the car shape and makes it compact and low. There may be a hint of blue, not sure. Sensational and has me dithering about my choice of VR

Supernova Silver. A darker deep silver with a grainy substrate when close up. Again suits the car and seems to accentuate the shape

Orange. In your face wham bang. Very Marmite.

Blue. This is a very dark but rich and deep blue, really very interesting colour, polishes up with a deep shine and looks good.

White. The new Black. Again I think this looks good and accentuates the shape.

Volcanic Red. Fabulous rich Candy Apple Red, a la Honda M/cycles, with a reflective substrate that shine in the sun/light

Volcanic Orange. Again rich, now darker than original, million dollar finish that suits the car. Substrate shines through brightly.

Azure Blue. Very modern blue, stands out......not to my taste but will appeal I'm sure.

Graphite Grey. Classy, understated, shrinks the car........diplomatic not in your face!

All the paints are to the highest finish and are top class quality.

Brilliant observations! Now I'm throughly excited to see my Volcano Orange car seeing that you've described it as a "...million dollar finish..."!!!
