Odd colored i8...

Post by GRNSHRK » Fri Sep 14, 2018 3:37 pm

So I'm out with the missus a couple of weekends ago in the cabrio (man, what a fun little car \:D/ ) and when we come back to where the car was parked, next to us is an i8 :shock:

Well, nice, but, check out this color #-o

This brings up a few questions, namely, WTF is BMW thinking, painting cars fly shit yellow [-X

And, who would plunk down 6 figures for this example :roll:

We waited for the guy who let his kid play in the gravel to move, alas we got tired of waiting, snapped the pic, and took off ](*,)

So, what do you guys think, am I off base :-"

I realize that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but still, yuk :-({|=

When they came out with that color a few years ago on the M3/M4, I called it "Bile Duct Yellow". It is hideous. They even use it in one of their national commercials. My wife said "that's not really a color option, is it? Are they blind?" All I can say is that color-blindness must be more rampant than we thought. :roll:

Rancid popcorn I say. Some of the new Fiats and others are painted as you'd paint a house a boring flat house paint color YUK ](*,) Or in the case in this i8 "Bold Urine"
