Please post more pictures, further away. I am so glad you went with the more subdued purple. That turned this project from possibly very strange into very different+verycool, especially considering that SG has some purple flake to it itself!

I had to put it against the car. I could not tell from a computer screen. If you guys like this project just wait for my e46m to finish up. I will see what I can do about more pics but the light has to be right and Hawaii has been cloudy lately. So may be this holiday weekend, hopefully the suspension will be setting back at the normal level by then too. Now that I know the haters are here I will post more often.

Thought I might add that these are E46 rears mounted front and rear so running 275s squared.

So I finally got a little sun here but all I had with me when the timing was right was the iPhone I will still get some better ones with a good cam when I can. Also including some of a little darker day to show the variation.

E92 is the model of car. I google searched that color. But I recommend you take the pic to a local powder coating place or just go there empty handed and check out what they have. I am doing the same thing in a bluish color on my E46M next week. Its tough to tell in pix you need to go to the shop and hold it up against your car.

One of the last pics I took of my SparGra car before I traded it in for the Mineral White Competition Pack E92 that I have now.

It is just amazing how light sensitive this colour is. Taken on the way through France, to the Ring last autumn.

I have the Sparkling Graphite. Just bought a few days ago and no where does it appear purplish or greenish...it looks like Gun Metal...period! I wouldn't of bought it if it looked purple or greenish. Everyone sees colors differently I guess but no other color is in that paint
