Of course, I would need to see it in person to make a final judgement.

Btwy, one unfortunate side effect of a color that stands out is that it also stands out to the cops.

Finally, what is the difference between veneto beige and venetian beige?
in showrooms with flourescent lights, estoril blue can look a little purpley / lavender from what i've seen. seems to look better in natural light , or when its a little darker out and just street lights are on.

also i have seen an estoril blue f30 in a show room with blacked out rims, blacked out grill, BEIGE interior with brown wood trim. it looks basically terrible. the beige is a little darkish for a car, and well with the brown wood vs estoril blue looking totally weird when estoril blue is looking lavendar (so yeah in certain lighting that combo will look terribad). kind of amazes me actually that you can order beige interior with estoril blue, but not the gray interior which seems like it'd make a lot more sense.
