    Yeah I just don't have many solid blues, which is amazing since I have soooooooooooooo many colors. I suggested the Scirocco chip because the car is available as a prize (and who would choose white?)
    The issue wit the Nismo wheels is that they have a satin finish, a Matte Orange-ish Bronze would be required.

    Yeah, I chose Rising Blue as well. Despite being pearlescent, you could probably get away with it - the colour is indeed very close to the Calsonic R32.

    As for the NISMO wheels, either Light Gold, Gold Leaf Metallic or Tunisian Tan Metallic from the Plymouth 'Cuda Six Pack are the closest I've found - I'm currently favouring the tan. They're all a bit too "saturated" and yellow compared with the R34 R-tune in the game, but that's a Standard and their colours are often off, especially in the new engine. Compared with real life, I'd say any of those colours are close enough.

    You're right about the satin finish, but none of the matte colours in the Anniversary Pack or currently available through seasonals cut it, unfortunately. I did try GT6 Matte 17, the dark brown-ish one - it's hard to distinguish from a matte black or dark grey at times.

    GT6 Matte 17 sounds a bit like Marrone Apus from the Aventador, only free with pre-order. I'll check the 'Cuda colors again but I have them all and surely I must have tried them.

    I'm looking for this color

    I tried Midnight Purple III but it's too purple, that paint looks like it's more of a blue/purple. The other colors I tried were Plum Crazy and In-Violet Metallic, but neither look right, either too purple again or too bright.

    Here it is with Midnight Purple

    @p3bucky Check out the TVR dealership, your odds are pretty good. If credits are a concern you can sort by price and check the cheapest "new generation" model (i.e. not the V8S) because many of the paints are shared. If TVR doesn't help, you may be stuck with the 500,000cr Toyota FT-86 G Sports if anything at all. Color-shifts aren't common.

    How about Amaranth purple from the classic Mini?

    I found a pretty good match for the stripe on the FXX, just in case anyone wants it all white: Bossa Nova White, a Fiat paint. I think it's only available with the '08 Lounge.

    The white from the Impreza and M3 might match the stripe on the FXX.

    I too was using bossa nova on the fxx but I just ran through my whites and found the lambo countach ""Bianco Labrador" to be a closer match than the bossa nova so I swapped it.

    You might check it out

    Cheers

    Try one of the Anniversary colors. I think I've seen one similar to Shmee's

    A few modern Ferraris come in the colour 'Blu NART'; I thought it looked quite similar to that blue. ()

    That's a bit of a chromish color; do you have the anniversary colors?

    Sorry about the chrome I should have used the racing suit instead.

    "Azzurro cielo" from the "Ferrari Dino 246 GT" is very similar

    I already chose the VX220 "Petrol". (and, amazingly, I also fitted it with VOLKS Triniti V!)

    The real Porsche color should be "Aqua Blue". The best match I've found for it in GT6 so far is "Spectrum Blue Metallic" from the Jaguar XKR '10.

    As above, but there's a deep metallic blue I saw on a TVR Tuscan just recently. It's very striking, and quite close to that Porsche's in-game. I don't know the name, but it should be obvious when you see it. It should be on the T350C, too, probably others - whichever's cheapest :D

    It's even cheaper on the Opel Corsa.

    Did you ever find one? Vauxhall and Opel have Europa Blue pearl on the VX220/Speedster, which whilst not accurate to the real car's blue, is actually pretty close to that blue in-game.

    I don't come into the GT6 section often as my PS3 is at my fiance's house and I rarely play 6 at the moment.

    For anyone wanting a Subaru gold wheel colour that's actually a manufacturers colour - try Mustard Mica on the Legacy B4 RSK '98. Might look odd on the car but on wheels it was my go-to on GT5!

    Does anyone know of a Yellow to match the Scuderia shield on Ferrari front fenders?

    Likely to be their own colours. I suspect Giallo Modena.

    There are tons of vibrant yellows, Cizeta's canary, I used to love one called Giallo Fly, not sure if it's Alfa or Ferrari or other.

    Sometimes, the only thing to do is trawl the dealerships and buy buy buy.
