The original shade of the car is Carbon Steel Grey. It is not a bad colour in any manner but, the owner wanted something different for his car.

He took the car to a detailing studio and the staff showed him couple of samples. He finalised black and in black, there were couple of options available too. The owner was confused between the gloss black and the satin black. Sample of both these shades were applied on the car and the owner liked the Satin and left the car at the workshop.
