I realy like mystic with black interior but I think the grey interior also looks very sporty. I dont like the beige at all.

tell me about it dude, when I ordered my car I thought xenons were not a big deal. a month later i wanted to chop my balls off, called the dealer to see if they could get them installed after I got the car and they said it was like 2500 and it might have been for only one side.
I think my best bet now is to wait for aftermarket xenons with clear corners... that would be the best

Is it just me or is the Mystic Blue a bit "Blue-Grey"...? It has a strange undertone to it that I can't seem to put my finger on. I still like it, though. It's one of my top two choices along with the other "MB".

No, not even a hint of grey. Have you seen it in person?

Yes, I did see the Mystic in person at the dealership (outside) and from the photos I've seen, I absolutely LOVE the colour !

I guess what I'm saying is that I look at pictures in direct sunlight (like the side view attached to this post) and it makes me want to drool but from what I remember from seeing it in person was that it really looked closer to the rear bumper shot attached. I can't quite put my finger on the colour but it's not "pure" blue, or "royal" blue... I suppose "Mystic" is a pretty good descriptor for it

If you were to try to describe the colour to someone else, how would you describe the type of blue to them?

I did a little experiment in photoshop and brough in a couple of photos of the car onto the screen and used the standard ps pallet with their basic descriptions of colours and the closest colour I could match to the overall colour of the car was "dark cyan blue". I "painted" a swatch of dark cyan blue under each of the pictures to show what I mean.

Does this look close?

Thank you.

PS. It probably says somewhere about how to have photos appear within your text but I haven't figured it out yet so attachments will have to do. Also, my apologies for photoshopping other people's photos...

My car has no greyish hue in it. Maybe if it is covered in salt like it is now, but without salt on it, it is either darker blue or a light blue.

I literally live 1/2 mile from nyit. I go to Stony Brook. I love it around here but the traffic
is getting ridiculous.

Hmmm....it reminds me of the color of the deeper ocean water I have seen in Fiji or off the beach in Honolulu. Does that help?

BTW i agree with you 100%. This color has to be
seen in person. It's much nicer and better
looking in person than it does in the pics for some
reason. It's a really nice blue. I dont know if it was
the car or the color but it was getting a lot of stares.
I'll post some pics tomorrow in the sun.

That looks REALLY nice. I've been thinking about the mystic/black combo myself, though being in CA I don't know if it'll be too hot. I'll probably end up going with grey. Which oddly enough is what your interior kinda looks like in your pics.
