Drove by an E91 in Monaco while I was driving the city. Did a double take with the camera

Monaco colour

Hard to get a impression of the colour Monaco Blue. It looks black in photographs no matter how you take them. I like that it looks black anyway but slightly more colourful.

Monaco Blue true Color

I think this photograph shows the true color of Monaco blue. It also shows how dark it looks even on a bright day if not in the direct sunshine. The rear panel shows the true dark metallic blue color of it though. Its a classy color.

Paddyrx8, I love the last picture you posted, having seen it in real life, I think that's a good rendering of Monaco Blue. The previous pic however looks very strange, almost like sparkling graphite, with a touch of green in it (I blame the grass for that).

Anyway, I love the mods you did with it, makes it pretty unique for this colour.

Thanks for your comments. It may be the only Monaco Blue E90 with an ACS bodykit in the world. I certainly haven't seen any others on this forum. Heres another sunny pic. Back to looking very dark but its a nice picture.

Nice, but it's not quite as special as carbon black, i'm just totally hanging out for jerez black, i've got a feeling it'll be something special!

New rims? I remember your original pics. They were awesome, I can't forget the plane in the background . Are those M6 rims (w/RFT)?

Yes I went back to the same location as my first photo session.
Those are new rims. 19s M6 replicas with non RTF.

What do you about flats, etc...? Just curious because I'm thinking of upgrading rims and trying to find RFT's that fit after markets are pretty hard. I know its OT but just curious.

Finally, I can contribute to this thread

I have to agree that it's very hard to capture the true Monaco Blue on camera, but here are my attempts. Either way, the color is awesome in real life!
