Same for the show-car white.

LOL... I may have just explained that in my previous post... I can see the Flat pearl white being a House of Kolor paint as well.

I do believe however that the Shimrin is sitll "acceptable for a custom color". As a comparison... the "chameleon blue" on my Tuscan cost me 1260GBP/liter for the photocromatic (flip flop if you want) paint only, a special black base coat was needed and then of course the clearcoat...
