Wow. When the Benman's right he's right, and when he's wrong, he's wrong.
Problem is, I'm both.

Ok, so made the color and did a spray out (color is brand new BTW and paint manufactures just got the color info less than one month ago...). Color is really cool. I said the color was white for sure. Well, it is. But I also said the color was NOT metallic, well, it is! I've never seen a color that is both. In the past, this was impossible (although in my defense, the color is 77% pearl white vs 5.5% metallic ). But as the saying goes, there is a first time for everthing.
The only way to know for sure if my spray out is the same tint as the car is to mail the spray out to Erik for him to check.
Erik, I'll send you a PM.
IMHO, this color looks great in the sun. All the looks of a pearl white with a great bluish tint to it. Very unique and a great sparkle (almost zryllic like). I'd seriously consider this on a small sporty car (read A3 2.0 TDI S Line... ).
