awesome setup

stephen6119 02-15-2006 11:14 PM

Difference?
 
So uhhh...is there a difference between Indigo Ink Pearl and Nautical Blue Metallic?

ack154 02-15-2006 11:20 PM

It's subtle, but yes. I believe the NBM is very slightly darker... but I think you'd have to see them next to each other to really see the difference.

GT4Dreams 02-18-2006 04:50 AM

That is so cool! Also cute.

DangerWanger 02-20-2006 07:45 PM

I've always been curious about production numbers for the different colors. Anyone have a link to this info? Thanks.

EnderSavesTheDay 02-21-2006 02:17 AM

IIP is way lighter than NBM

jjjosh41 03-20-2006 05:20 AM

Im with DangerWanger...production numbers by color would be cool to see. I know with the 3000GT/Stealth (my last car) there was a site where you could type in your VIN and it would give you a whole write up on how many other cars have your color, interior, options, all that good stuff and then it would tell you how many other cars are identical to yours. Like my old 3000GT was 1 of 1,546 identical.

Ive seen that to on a corvette forum. Would be pretty cool to see about the tC's.

Nice color, looks better than my FM

clockwerk 05-05-2006 08:01 PM

would be nice to get the tC in a Yellow or even a bronze color

wolfe 06-01-2006 04:29 PM

Question - is Silver streak mica technically inferior to classic silver metallic?

To me the colors look very similar though I haven't been able to compare two cars side by side.

Just wondering if they changed the paint due to the new one being better, or whether it was purely a slight shift in color with a new name?

ack154 06-01-2006 04:44 PM

Here's a SSM/CSM comparison pic for you:
https://www.scionlife.com/forums/vie...606246#1606246

There is no "inferior" or "superior" ... it's just that Scion decided to only use SSM for the 2005s and then use CSM for 2006 on.

wolfe 06-01-2006 05:57 PM

Ah thanks, looks like SSM has a slightly warmer tint to it? Seems hardly noticable though.

raWr215 07-06-2006 04:15 PM

perhaps the final year of the current tC model should be all the RS colors? so it should be something like RS1 to RS5 (if it reaches 5 years) so 5 colors

amanda776 07-28-2006 09:56 AM

I figure this thread would be the best place to ask this question:

Look at how the sun is hitting my car in this picture....
http://memimage.cardomain.net/member...13_14_full.jpg

That gave me a great idea for 2-toning it. Top half a lighter blue (darker than AP) and leave the bottom IIP. I love the idea, but I'm not sure it would look good with the black rims. Opinions?

akshay_d 08-08-2006 06:11 PM

If you are discussing about colors then it would be a good idea as to which is the best color in terms of looks+life+ageing. I think the silver as it shows up less scratches and dirt over the time. I booked a silver one as the dark colors are very difficult to maintain plus show up blemishes easily especially warranting the poor color quality. Has Scion finally improved the color quality on the 2007 tC?

If that was the case, IIP should be like...release series 1.5 :P

scion8183 08-24-2006 07:30 PM

I would have to agree on the fact that silver shows less scratches and marks to an extent.
