Is it my eyes or is Snow Storm actually metallic


So I was under the impression that Snow Storm was just a standard non metallic white. I picked up the beast this morning and upon inspection under sunlight the white is actually a very fine metallic fleck paint. Almost a pearl type. Its certainly not large flecks like other metallic but certainly is not a standard white. I thought that maybe I had received the wrong colour but notice that the 2012 models only come in one white which is Snow Storm.

The reason I ask is because all the metallic colours are extra an extra $495 why is that the case if snow storm is also metallic but not charged as a metallic colour.

Don't get me wrong I'm not complaining I think that it is a nice paint just surprised, even the dealer told me that Snow Storm is def not a metallic paint. Anyone else with Snow storm able to comment?

Re:


Tom,

I think they call that paint a Mica paint, kind of like a pearl type white, not Metallic.
It has been the same right through the T31 series.

Re: Re:


Cheers Tony that makes sense.

I have always disliked the pearl type white, my focus was a cool almost fluro white, the pearls always looked dirty/cream to me but I must admit it looks really schmick on the exy.

I keep walking to the garage to look at the car emoticon forgot what its like to have a new toy. I keep finding new features and as every hour goes by I am even more happy with my choice.

Now I just need a free day and for the rain to stop so I can hit the paint with some clay bar and then some Zymol to protect.

thanks again for the reply mate
