My H3 is a color called "Midnight Blue Metallic" and I can't tell the difference between that and the paint chip color "Imperial Blue Metallic". I suspect they are the same thing only the name has changed.

I'm not sure if it would be "cool" to have both cars the same color, so I might go with ABM. But maybe IBM with some silver or white stripes would work.

I can't decide!

Some of the colors don't look correct in those pictures. The yellow is brighter than that.

Yeah awesome thanks a lot! That was a great idea getting them in the different lighting. the ones with the flash off of um are particulay badass. i love how it represents them being in direct sun light. you hit it spot on.

Thanks for the pics...

I can't believe some of you are basing your color choice on tiny sample squares. For me, nothing short of seeing the car in person will effect my color decision.

I've been leaning towards Black, but the Imperial Blue is very tempting, so its all up in the air now. Great Pics!

Already set on the SIM, but the up close paint chip looks better than imagined. Thanks for making this thread.

are you using a point and shoot or an SLR?

The images were taken with 2 different cameras. One is a Canon DSLR and the other is the top end Casio "Point and Shoot". The white balance was set for sunny conditions.

Yes, the white looks like it has some other color in it. Look at the paper the chips are on and you can see the camera is picking up white with no problems and the white chip HAS to be darker then the paper for it to show up like it does.

Remember, not all white is the same.

Also, the paint chip may or may not be reflecting some blue from the sky or something. It's all relative to what is around you and what the background is. Your eye will adjust to the surroundings differently than the camera.

The dealer I ordered through still don't have them yet, but I found another local dealer that had the paint chip and didn't know they could take orders.
After seeing the paint chips I changed from IOM to ABM.

My dealer claimed he only received "Three of them" and handed me one to look at. For something so rare and valuable, he never asked for it back and didn't stop me from walking out the door with it in my hand.

Still CGM for me!

But I gotta say, I have not completely ruled out Black with beige interior, or Imperial Blue....

Thanks for the pics. I have been leaning toward ABM, but still want to see all the colors on the actual cars outside.
