Thank's for the intro, Whirlin'...Suzuka Grey... where do I begin? Id like to think I've influenced at least one or two people somewhere on this globe to choose Suzuka Grey over Ibis White. Ive had 3 Ibis cars and this is my first Suzuka so having lived with both, I have decent insight. Its a very unique color, not quite grey, not really white. Its the color of smoke and it changes in different lighting conditions. Suzuka is a 3 dimensional color with a great deal of depth whereas Ibis is a 2 dimensional 'flat' color. If you're a painter, Ibis would be a 'matte' finish and Suzuka would be 'satin'.

If you're truly torn between Ibis and Suzuka, I have an email that describes the Ibis vs Suzuka situation complete with pictures of them next to one another. Only then will you really see the difference. I can't embed the pics into this posting. If you give me an email address, Id be happy to forward it to you.

I'm probably going the Suzuka route, now that my Titanium wheels got rejected. Back to the AE catalog after all.

I've never seen it in person. Does it have any metallic flakes to it?

Please look at the pic in my gallery of four R8s . White is very nice. But if you notice the white R8 just does'nt show the lines of the car very well. The R8 has FREAKIN BAD ASS lines compared to say an F430 which has all those beutiful CURVES.(in the bodies)

I can see what you mean on that pic. Suzuka grey TT RS has much more defined lines than the white TTs (hope i got those right :eek:)

I'm not sure you looked at the right pics. I have NO TT's in my gallery .The pic I refer to: four R8s ,My blue, then Kens silver, then Despys' white ,then R84MEs' silver. See how the lines of the fenders get accented differently ? Personally I think white does'nt do the car justice. :)
