New Orleans Blue

My car is in for knocking suspension this morning and I noticed this in the showroom. Sorry just a mobile phone pic but it looks great in New Orleans Blue with the chrome! I would have had this colour if it had been available.

Re: New Orleans Blue

Have you ever seen a Mod Blue one with chrome? It looks miles better, less of a 'brightness' to the blue, it's more subtle but still has a nice depth to the paint

Re: New Orleans Blue

Not keen on Mod Blue myself. The pic above doesn't do it justice though- it looks much better in the showroom.

Re: New Orleans Blue

I think it looks sexy. I'd have seriously considered that with black leather were it available at the time I bought mine. Actually I want that colour on an Abarth witout the Abarth boy racer stripes and body kit. Mmm sleeper beast!

I have to agree. I know it's not retro, but it does look kinda smart. Not my favourite wheels though. However, and this is a big however, showrooms can deceive. I was lusting after a black Mito in a showroom the other day: now it on a stand outside, covered in winter crud, and it looks dull as pig@h1t.

Wait for summer I suppose

Re: New Orleans Blue

I have a Panda in this colour, looks fab on a sunny day as my pictures shows! Not very "Retro" though so not sure if it suits the 500.

Was going to say that the photos at the top of the thread looked a bit off in terms of colour balance and your pictures show just how much

I've noticed how different a lot of colours look in showrooms due to the fluorescent lighting! Always choose a car colour in brilliant sunlight, certain lighting can alter colours dramatically.
