Just picked it up today. Sorry about the crappy iPhone pictures. At least it gives an idea of the different shades...

It may be car dependent, but I think GT cars look like best in white,black, silver and louder colors. This GBM is just there. They had it on a cayman and it also looked terrible.

But Chalk looks good on GT3, but terrible on the Panamera.

But, if you like it, who cares.
Agreed about the Chalk on the Panamera. Saw one in the showroom.

The thing as many times stated with colours is that you need to see them in person on that particular model if that is even possible.
My experience is that if there is no wow effect on the first occasion then later on I am gonna start to like it less and less.
If you have any doubts about the colour give it up. Don't make yourself like it.

I saw GBM on 911 and the colour in my opinion was "correct" nothing special, nothing wrong. I would say it was camouflaging the car a bit.

I like it... to me that's what counts. Personally I like drabby grayish-bluish colors anyway...

I mentioned this in the other thread but here it is again ....lighting (the amount and type) plays a significant role in the beauty & effect of Graphite Blue Metallic.

How often does the car look like the middle pic? It’s my favorite of the three.

I like it, not sure I'd have a car in it but I'd choose it over a lot of other colours.

Mostly when on directly sunlight. On shades it gets a tad towards grey.

Funny- I see the opposite. More blue with shade.

Every one see colors slightly different which this forum has proven

its strange how certain colors compliment certain cars. I was sold on GBM for my GT3.2, however when I went to place the order the dealer had a GBM Boxster in stock, I was completely underwhelmed and changed my build to Carmine. Now seeing your cars I am questioning my decision, they look fantastic! congrats and drive the snot out of them.

Wait until you see CR. Better than most PTS offerings.

Agreed. CR is very unique, gorgeous if you are thinking of red.

I just took my brand new GBM GT3 to cars and coffee and everyone commented how stunning the color is. Far better in real life and really works with the contrasting black bits. I'm biased to platinum wheels but works with sliver, black or platinum. I'm extremely happy with my choice.
