Ohhh I dunno. That CSL in Nardo looks wicked! I would go with that. Same accents and everything.

Haha. I was hoping for a little more Nardo love than this. It might end up being a game time decision. I just donít want any regrets with the amount Iím going to drop. I may need to find someone with some photo chopping skills to throw some sky blue calipers behind both wheels...

Nardo. I think it will hide dirt a little better between washings which seems trivial but man keeping a dark car clean sucks.

Haha. I went theough the same exact thing from nardo to Telesto. Telesto hands down. Nardo on this body style looks to much like primer but the telesto grey looked perfect.

I've never even been a fan of flat gray colors. But I have to say that Nardo CSL is just stunning.

Grigio Scuro ó the darkest, rare and non-Metallic Gray...

All painters seem to discourage non-metallic colours as it is the hardest thing to paint well so they push the metallic colours and call it primer to discourage

Telesto all the way with silver wheels and the standard chrome grilles all around.
