This car looks great in every color! Gunmetal wheels work well with black.

I think black as well as white are the best color for GT3

Is it just me or does basalt black look like a somewhat dirty version of jet black? If you're going to go black.. Go committed to the shiny stuff no?

I have the same opinion. Love black but haven't been overwhelmed by basalt black on a Porsche. It kinda looks like it is already dirty. Although it does look great on a clear sunny day when the sun hits it.

Basalt hides scratches and swirls better than standard black. Basalt looks better in my opinion as well; not dirty at all.

I love basalt black, but I am biased. I find it much more interesting color than jet black. Easier to maintain too.
