Yikes, these shots are not flattering for the Melbourne Red at all.

Great to see one on the lot though!

What do you think of the Jerez Black IRL? The pictures give it a matte purplish hue?

Thanks! Look forward to Saturday then...
Although, considering that it is raining all the time here, the pictures posted are probably very accurate to how it will actually look...

I'm a bit worried about the "purple" sheen.
