    Thanks Johnny, it seems to be an uncommon colour again, like my previous one in city red (salmon pink type colour) I guess I just like different colours lol

    Yeah it is very hard to photo, it needs a good clean as soon as it stops raining!

    I'm quite sure the purple will look good, it's going to be a dark purple metallic so will look good I hope

    Also forgot to mention, I've just restored my Irmscher splitter (facelift one) and I've decided not to fit it to my bumper as it seems pointless smoothing it then adding this splitter. So if you're getting a facelift front bumper, it's ready to be sold to you

    That's fine mate it's understandable!

    Car looks great, colour is really nice. You can see the green tinge really well in the pictures

    Yeah, did polish it afterwards but then it got dark so didn't get any pics lol

    I love the colour, in direct sunlight you can see the green/blue tinge really well, but then in shade it looks black

    Thanks
