    Nope, not chromes. But the LFA has matte black if you're willing to spend that much money :p And the Toyota FT-86 G Sports concept has really nice Color shifts, but it's 500,000cr

    The Lotus "Chrome Orange" is simply named that; it's not actually a chrome-style paint.

    The new method of dealing with paint chips - like them not disappearing after use - is tempered by the fact there's absolutely no way to sort them. It's going to get ugly as you amass a lot...

    Oh yeah, and the cars that didn't give chips in GT5 still don't. The Mustang Mach 1, the RS6 Avant (though only it's red option), and the entire McLaren lineup.

    Technically no(t yet), but you could buy and sell it right after, with a loss in most cases. Not a big seller so I haven't tried it. I can't imagine the chip would be removed in the process.

    Also the Mustang Boss doesn't give you paint chip.

    One does not get Grabber Blue that easily ><
    Theres always the Lotus Europa but I wanted the strippe, official and all.

    Does this apply to all paint chips? I wonder if it will apply to DLC paint chips and AE chips? I really hope so.

    The aventador has matte black, white & a dark brown but it costs 400k. It also has what looks like a couple different pearlescents, but I can't afford to buy them just to be sure.

    While I love not having them disappear, I hate the fact that they can't be sorted. I'm a little O.C.D. in that I really like to have all of my cars painted in a color from their respective manufacturer (Chevy must be a GM color, etc). Even with just a few colors, this is becoming tedious. I got around them disappearing in GT5 by backing up my game save to a USB drive, gifting them to my other profile then reloading the save before I did the gifting. Even though the chip disappeared when I used it, my other profile could then just gift it back (backing that save up first). This worked great for amassing a large garage as well. Anyway, I really wish they would start gifting chips on a daily basis like they used to. The new Seasonals are boring and only give specific chips and once the seasonal is over...

    That's what I did (and how making the paint chip database was even possible, really ;) ), and I'm the same as you; barring a few favourite colours, I tend to keep my cars painted in manufacturer tones, or at least sibling-makes (Audi paint on VW's, etc etc). GT6's method is three steps forward, and two steps back.

    The chrome chip was available in one of the seasonal events about a month ago. Can't remember which one. :(
