    Ice Silver - Pearlescent?

    Having now washed my new Ice Silver S3 and seen it (for the first time) clean in bright sunlight, I am more convinced than ever that this colour is in fact pearlescent rather than metallic.

    Would anyone else with an Ice Silver car care to comment?
    I wouldn't be so paranoid if everyone wasn't out to get me......

    It does look it but as far as I'm aware its just a name change from Metallic

    Well, according to both the online configurator and current brochure, it is listed as a "metallic" colour and not pearl effect.

    Rumour has it the name was changed to make it a bit more "funky", but don't know if that's true!

    Hey Jam, you would say that wouldn't you, being a metallic silver owner...

    Just while you're on, could you remind me about the wheel spacers you put on your (admittedly fine looking) machine - was it 10mm front, 15mm rear, and what was the make and supplier?

    Those are the ones mate, H + R Hubcentric ones. Dont forget the longer bolts too.

    Damian from DPM on this site supplied the rear ones as i already had the 10mm ones from my old S3! Give him a shout as he can beat most quotes.
