[PHOTOS] Blue Onyx Pearl - The Best Paint for The IS?

Instead of buying a black IS 350 we've chosen to get a Blue Onyx Pearl. I must say, I have never seen a paint that looked so good on a car.

Here are some pictures. In my opinion, blue onyx pearl and black sapphire pearl are the two best colors you can get on the IS Lexus.



Note how sunset skies are reflected by this paint... Simply amazing...




And a bright daylight version.


Now, the only thing left is to put the two different types of blue paint one next to another and shoot a set of good pictures. Anyone got a black sapphire in South Jersey area?

BTW I love to photograph cars. I can take professional pictures for free, so anyone in my area - feel free to contact me!

Some pics of mine.













Here is one that I took at night after I had washed the car. I wanted the purplis/pearl to come out on the pic.



This is on a bright day, around noon, the color looks totally different. These I took when I still had my first gen



This one is called "reflections of the past"
