    confused Black Sapphire and Carbon Flash

    Can anyone tell me and indeed show me the difference between these 2 colours - i'm thinking of getting an SRI and i think that now they only come in Carbon Flash instead of Black Sapphire.

    What is the difference???

    Are they both black but different "shades" of black or what?
    Does anyone have a good comparison picture?

    Help!!

    Vehicle : Vectra

    Trim : SRi (VXR Styling)

    Engine : Z19DTH (Re-mapped)

    Year : 04

    Mileage : 110k

    Default

    If anything like my Astra, (and both blacks) the Saphire will be a more gloss black with smaller flakes in...

    The carbon flash will be simillar to Diamond black i'd imagine, larger flakes or a little lighter but more reflective...

    I had diamond black and some days it looked a faded black/grey- even after a full respray, i wrote of my saphire black one

    It's just a different shade of Metallic black.
