to be honest i really can't tell too much of a difference between all these blues bmw has, unless they are all parked side by side. whenever i see individual pictures of lemans, topaz, interlagos, mystic, they all look more or less the same depending on the lighting condition.

lighting definitely has a lot to do with it and pretty much is the biggest indicator of the difference between each color as light usually brings out that "hidden" color, such as purple in the Interlagos.

I don't agree.There is no purple hue at all in any lighting condition of pics that i have seen of Topaz .I have seen a few pictures of Mystic that have looked a little purple but nothing like Lemans or Interlagos.I do agree with Idz21 that different lighting changes these colors quite a bit in different pics.

Yea thats why its so messed up, Pictures don't do it justice you would have to see it for yourself. I probablly wouldn't be able to tell the diffrence between Topaz, Avus, or Lemans blue.

Yea that's what I'm saying, in the right lighting you could probably tell, but in a lot of them they almost all look the same.







If you didn't see these pics side by side could you really tell a difference? Even side by side they are a bit hard to distinguish...
