    nogaro blue

    I was under the impression that nogaro was this colour

    http://www.pistonheads.com/sales/76443.htm

    not this colour
    http://www.pistonheads.com/sales/127331.htm

    both pics r a taken in strange light so dont look quite right, but the 2nd one is surely some other colour is it not??

    cheers

    Nah, the second one is just very washed out colour wise, it is Noggy. The first one is quite dark and the same colour looks a lot deeper blue.

    The first one was taken on a bright sunny day and the second on a dull day which makes the effect more pronounced.

    Everyone knows blue is slow, remember when Pepsi painted a concorde with its colours and then it wouldn't go past the sound barrier?

    The problem with common sense, is that its not that common.

    went to look at a black one, didnt have the ally mirrors and i thot it idnt stand out enough from an a3. Saw a yellow s3 the other day an it looked great, but i think the colour is just a bit too loud for me

    Denim blue is nice but i still think noggy wins.

    Now iv just gotta find one!

    I would actually put money on it that you are wrong.

    Also, I didn't say Denim was pearlescent, I asked if it was metallic.

    Pearlescence is an effect produced by blending different shades/colours of metallic paint. Actually I think its a pearl tint added to the lacquer but someone more knowledgeable on painting could confirm this.

    How you can say that this :-


    and this :-


    look the same is beyond me You must be colour blind lol

    The lighting conditions, ie flash type, or lense filters can massively alter the look of paint finish.

    So you're probably both wrong......

    Whatever, besides the fact that the OWNER OF THE CAR says its Nogaro blue and everyone else agrees it's Nogaro...

    Denim is a metallic paint, Nogaro is a flat colour and that second car is a 1000% a flat colour and NOT metallic therefore my dear Watson, I deduce that as Nogaro is the only flat blue available on S3's (Ming blue is metallic) that it must be Nogaro blue.

    It is purely and simply down to the light conditions at the time and the contrast in the quality of the cameras.

    Oh dear...
    Nogaro isn't flat...it's pearl effect!

    But, your point is valid...it doesn't look metallic.
    In dull light it looks flat...under bright light the pearl effect takes over and it changes colour..but although the base coat IS actually metallic, it has a very fine metal flake size and thus looks flat in poor light.

    The metallics - like Denim - have a heavier metal-flake in them and they lok much more metallic looking.

    I didn't pay all that extra for flat paint!!
    It's deffo pearl effect.

    Thanks for the correction Glen, I actually just realised that after reading the 225ps specs where it states 'Nogaro Blue (Pearl)'. Didnt know it had a metallic base coat though, thought it was a pearl lacquer like VW Jazz blue...
