That is almost Bluefire...............CNV00021.jpg
As we both have Bluefire, we may be slightly bias in our colour preference, but I have parked mine next to a Spectrum Blue and they are several shades apart and the Spectrum does have that pigment that sparkles the paint

I think if you look at your car in the sun you will also see those pigments, perhaps quite not as intense. Good colour though isn't it?

The manufacturers tend to choose the best colour to show the car off in their brochures. In the one I have it seems to be predominantly red with the occasional blue and white.

I test drove this colour and fell in love with it. Due to the leasing issues with my previous audi titty it was six months before I went a searching for a 240 r sport but found this beauty at Hatfields in Shrewsbury and I live in north London. Would have bought any colour in the spec but just so happens it was in Caesium Blue.

There were some terrific metallic blacks early on but they all got canned eventually. Mine is Ultimate black with subtle speckles of gold and silver in it but the best was Celestial Black that had dark blue speckles.

But of course any black colour is impossible to live with in the long run.

I am surprised to hear the BRG is now discontinued for XE.

I absolutely love the BRG, particularly when the sun is out, it is so shiny green 8-)
