    Altas Grey vs. Pure (not basalt) Black Exterior?

    Car will have natural grey interior with carbon accents and PCCBs.

    Opinions please!!

    Re: Altas Grey vs. Pure (not basalt) Black Exterior?

    You are insane!!! I thought you already decided on black!!!

    Re: Altas Grey vs. Pure (not basalt) Black Exterior?

    I have the strangest feeling you know me, and if you do this is not news, but I am quite insane about this choice... I think about it more than is rational by a factor of 10. In fact, if possible there is still an outside chance I switch completely back to slate grey / natural brown...

    I guess I need real problems.

    Re: Altas Grey vs. Pure (not basalt) Black Exterior?

    Why not Basalt?

    Re: Altas Grey vs. Pure (not basalt) Black Exterior?

    I had the same agonizing thought process and decided on black with frequent dates with my detailer. The TT just looks so amazing in black (when clean)

    Re: Altas Grey vs. Pure (not basalt) Black Exterior?

    I just like plain black better. I find Basalt a little too much like dirty black. This is why Basalt is MUCH better if you can't keep your cars too clean, but I think I can manage it. I do think Basalt goes nicely if you have a brown interior. Obviously a ton of personal preference here.

    Re: Altas Grey vs. Pure (not basalt) Black Exterior?

    Atlas is confused with black quite often, and you get to enjoy an occasional grey look, a navyish blue look, and more depending on lighting.

    To most, they will simply assume it is black.

    What a color!!!!

    Re: Altas Grey vs. Pure (not basalt) Black Exterior?

    The natural brown/basalt combo I just saw was awsome...

    I believe you, but do not confuse me with more choice!! I confuse easily on this topic...

    Re: Altas Grey vs. Pure (not basalt) Black Exterior?

    Atlas at its best:

    Re: Altas Grey vs. Pure (not basalt) Black Exterior?

    Owning a 4S cab with Atlas/gray interior combo and blue top, I can tell you it is the best looking combo I have ever seen in any car period, except may be a slate gray f430 with red stitching black leather... I am not biased though...:-)

    Re: Altas Grey vs. Pure (not basalt) Black Exterior?

    Atlas is a beautiful, complex, and rich color, while black, which is classic and always stunning, is, well, black.

    You can't go wrong with either choice, but I think black would be a mistake.

    Re: Altas Grey vs. Pure (not basalt) Black Exterior?

    I've had four solid black cars, and like you i don't like the dirty brown tinge in sunlight of Basalt. I rejected my last car at dleivery due to poor prep and ended up buying an atlas car - WOW. Looks black in winter, blueish in summer, and somewhere in between the rest of the time. There have been very few occassions where i'd consider it'boring grey'

    Re: Altas Grey vs. Pure (not basalt) Black Exterior?

    Go with atlas. It's a unique color wich I learnt to love.

    Here's a pic of atlas with grey (stone) intrerior.

    Re: Altas Grey vs. Pure (not basalt) Black Exterior?

    What was the question again?

    Re: Altas Grey vs. Pure (not basalt) Black Exterior?

    Does Atlas show dust or it blends in with the light particles? How do you keep it dust free? Do you have to dust off every day or so?

    Re: Altas Grey vs. Pure (not basalt) Black Exterior?

    I love atlas, but keeping darker colors at their best takes extra effort. I presently have blue and I am sick of worrying about marks and chips. If I had the choice I might go with white or silver. If it was between black or atlas, I would take the atlas.
