    Yea that green is lovely. I might be boring and go Daytona, otherwise just get it re-sprayed phantom black coz my paint is shocking atm.

    The Mica just looks a bit "sickly" to me, can't explain it.

    As if to show how opinions vary, I think Racing Mica is the perfect shade of Blue ...and it's rare.

    Aruba was the closest I could find when I was looking to buy & I love it, but still think it's missing that certain something in comparison ...

    Sepang Blue, Daytona Grey or the Exclusive Purple, the one before Merlin. Love my Brilliant Black but it's a ***** to keep looking spot-on!

    I am going to try and get a daytona grey wrap or similar at some point. Mine is silver at the moment which is alright but wouldn't have been my first choice colour.
