Interesting video Pryme. I think the end of the video got cut off abruptly, oh well. I have a dark grey Mirage myself, black almost, and how true it is that black paint shows everything. Mine is pearlescent so it looks great when it's washed, then you move the car and the car is dirty again.

I figure paint-matching pearl paint at a paint shop is prolly a nightmare and imperfect science. I should have bought a touchup pen when I bought my car. The Mirage has had like 5 different grey and silvers over the years.
