    You want a nice tip?

    go and search for the cheapest cars, and look for the nicest colours to buy for cheap.

    then it's all checking to never buy a car with a repeated colour so it keeps adding up...

    I miss gt5 days when I got like 10 paint chips a day :/

    Yeah, I've created a database for myself to keep track of paints and from what car they came. A really nifty (and I would think simple) solution for the repetition prevention would be to have the same check that indicates ownership of a car next to any color of specific models that you have on your palate. But yeah, some kind of indication as to what make a color is--and a way to filter anything but the one you seek--would be a boon to practices such as those mentioned.

    This is a little unrelated to the actual topic but fits with the title; does anyone have any insights into the naming of colors (those beginning with GT, anyway) awarded in seasonal events? Chrome-xxxC is relatively obvious but there is also Japanese-xxxC in the Chrome category and, perhaps even more confusing, Chrome-xxxN in it as well. C for chrome and N for NomoreorlesschromethanchromesthatendinC (consult your physician before use)?

    The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG has a pretty nice matte silver paint :) It's like a bright matte gray, but with some metallic shine to it.

    They can only be obtained from the events. There's only been one repeat as far as I know, so you'll likely have to stick it out until they start coming back around again.

    Would be nice if you did not have to jump through hoops to get a paint chip that you then have to buy.

    My GT6 came with this special aniversary content,the cars,and a bunch of paints... But if I could,I would give you all my paint chips that came with,since I actually hate all of them. I always use original factory colors in my cars. For wheels,I only use silver metallic,chrome silver,black gloss and black matte.

    Agreed. The weird part is that I can choose any color I want when installing custom gauges, but to paint the car I have to deal with the stupid paint chip system.
