    Default What colour am I?

    Slightly embarrased to ask this...I thought I was Star Silver until I looked at the thread "what colour is your car" and now I cant tell if I am silver lightening.

    Please someone put me straight. Should be able to tell from avatar.

    This really is a low point in posting for me....should know what colour it is.

    Cheers

    You're deffo Star Silver. Vx did three ( it think it's only 3) shades of star silver though, just to confuse you even more.

    Lightning silver has a blueish hue to it.

    AJA, just when I thought my crisis of colour was over you go and pour in 3 more shades of doubt

    Watching a lip spoiler painted in Star silver on ebay - now I dont know if I should bid....thought if I got one pre painted it would save the effort of having it sprayed blah blah.

    The differences are very subtle matey, so it probably won't matter too much. If the the seller knows the paint code of the colour even better. Your paint code is on the offside B pillar on the info plate.

    Cool photo, there is a big difference in colour. When you look at the other "what colour car" thread the difference is harder to spot.

    Cheers, this helps.
