wrong colour choice??

Hi Guys...I am starting to wonder if I have picked the right choice of colour for my 500. I have chosen Electroclash grey...has anyone else seen or chosen this colour? If so, what is it like?

I havnt seen many of them around...

Cheers,

Re: wrong colour choice??

Superb! Would have been my colour if it wasn't for the moosus.
Works really well with the chrome and proper alloys in particular, someone here posted that one before:
Yeah baby!

True, having said that I aso find the funk white quite yummy and imo the closest colour to the spirit of the original 500, go to rural Italy and you'll see what I'm talking about.
But above all it's all about the specs.

(Good God, I am realising that I'm talking about the 500 like my wife would talk about handbags or shoes! )

Re: wrong colour choice??

I would have thought that Cha Cha Cha Azure was the closest colour to the spirit of the original 500. In the mid 1960's a neighbour had a very similar coloured one. In 1973, I had a '72 white one and my mother had one in ivory.

Re: wrong colour choice??

That Grey looks a good colour to me..and not seeing many of them around is a bonus in my oppinion..makes your car stand out...keep with it..ps i have gone for pasadoble red and still having second thoughts..theres just so many choices.
