I've read your threads and advice on dark metallics, but before I take the plunge and choose one of your selections, I'd appreciate one last piece of advice in case it makes a material chnge to the alternative options you'd recommend...
My wife's car is six months old and ready for next valet. When brand new, I clayed it and put on two coats of Collinite 476S. Its never had a "polish" on it...
When the sun is on the paint, the flakes really come out and it looks great.
But when the sun's not out, it just looks a bland grey... (See the bumper here below...)
There's still a good "shine" on the paint, as you can see from the reflection off the doors, but there's no "depth" to the colour when the sun's not on it - it just looks bland.
I'm not sure if this is just a factor of the clearcoat over grey metallic, or if there's something I can do to make the flake shine through better on a dull day.
I was on the verge of ordering your Acrylic kit (especially as my A3's silver, so it would be good for that too), but thought I'd seek your advise in case you had any better suggestions to make the paint stand out better when the sun's not out...
