Had a chance this weekend to take some non-grainy phone photos. You can see the difference on what a slight overcast will do to the color - that's the beauty of storm grey and all the other Xirallic colors. Enjoy!

sorry, I should have clarified. Storm Grey itself is NOT a matte paint. I had the Storm Grey wrapped in XPEL Stealth to get the satin/matte effect.

What is Xirallic? Is that why it is an extra $1,500? Storm Gray will be my color if I decide to go with FP.

I bet it is just as stunning during the twilight hours with those LEDs on.

BTW- my Rhodium FP just asked me to hang a poster of your ride in our garage!

Ok. I watched a review of the 2017 e class on youtube. It comes in a matt grey finish which is 2-3K more for that paint- I thought may be they were same/ similar technology.

Whatever it is it looks great! Congrats!

Xirallic colors need not be at a premium. Certain colors such as BRG, IRR, Ultimate Black, and Dark Saphire are Xirallic, hence the different shades in varied lighting.

Whatever color you choose, there is no wrong color - just make the car your own. Good luck!

your car looks fabulous. I like your wheel selection as well. Would you mind sharing size details / specs for the wheels and tires?

Thanks

dtx, pictures look beautiful. However i have one question for you: considering the fact that you have tires and rims that are non-standart how does this fact affect your warranty? I mean when you come to the dealer they would be able to see this. Could you shed some light on this? Thanks

Straight from google.com and hope this answers your questions.

"The Magnuson Moss Warranty Act addresses such issues. This law states that if a customer installs an aftermarket product (it could be a fluid, filter, hard part, software...virtually anything that was not installed on or in the vehicle from the factory when it was new) and if the vehicle fails as a result of the installation or use of the aftermarket product/service, the carmaker cannot arbitrarily deny a warranty claim and/or void the new car warranty because of the installation or use of the aftermarket product, but must prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that the failure was indeed caused by the installation or use of the aftermarket product."

dtx, one more question. how does new wheels in 285 work for you? Since you went with 22 inch tires what prompted you to choose 285 as opposed to manufacturer's recommended 265? Thanks in advance

mberesla I went a little wider on the wheels and tires because I wanted a more aggressive stance than the mfg recommended 265. So far the 285's are working out great - of course, wider wheels means more rubber to the pavement!! :D

dtx - can you take a picture of the car from the rear showing how far the tires extend out? I'm considering the same size tires that you put on but I'm thinking of staying with a 30 offset instead of going 22 like you...

I was admiring the clean (but by no means - boring) look of your vehicle and noticed Euro headlights - way to go with no orange blinkers!
Wondering if daylight LEDs stay on while blinkers are turned on and if not, can this be reprogrammed (had it done in my S5).
Never thought about the wrap but am strongly considering it now - wife approved already :laugh:
