Montego Blue vs Estoril Blue

I have a Montego blue car and seen the new Estoril blue matte.. Curious to know is my Montego blue brighter or darker? If anyone knows the difference please let me know... Thanks



The top pic is factory Estoril blue and the bottom is it with clear matte plasti dip...

I wouldn't say darker or lighter. Both colors look the same just the top is gloss and the bottom has more of a matte finish. I personally like the Estoril look.

EB is definitely lighter than MBM


while not on this list, MBM is closer to LeMans Blue. MBM has more purple hues to it while EB has more yellow/green hues to it in the sun

what ever you are thinking.. dont..

Hey where did you find that comparison? It's kind of nice. It would be helpful if there were a complete list showing all the blacks, silver/greys, blues, reds, and so on.

I've had two Montego blue cars and i agree that color has more of a purplish tone to it, which is more noticeable at night and when it is cloudy out.
