I think the NBP is more blue in person. The ABP seems to lean towards gray.

 

Agreed. I see the same.

 

I happen to have a picture that has both colours in it. However, it wasn't taken to show the comparision, so it not a great sample. Anyway, I've attached it (heavily cropped to get the size down). The car on the left is the ABP and the right is an 07 NBP. It is difficult to see the difference but have a look around the bright areas.

from what i have seen of the 2 colors, nbp has a blue-r base, while abp has a slightly grey sidetone---looking down either side angle of the car.....

 

i've mixed lotsa paint for body shops, and most modern colors have at least 4-6 component colors which result in the final color sample......

 

but they're both sweet colors.......

Yeha I just washed my car after a few snow storms to get all the dirt and salt off it. I was really amazed how amazing the paint is after it came through the washer. Its beautiful, whoever says its a girly color ahs never seen my car, and it outta thier mind. Much more exciting color than black, white, or grey.

Ive been looking for 18's. I prefer 18x8...i like the wide tire look. I found a set of volks that i want but i really can't spend the money right now. I really like rota torques and may get them if i wait til springs. Ive been watching the classifieds on a few forums and its rare anything decent comes up within 100 miles. If i buy used i want to deal local. Been screwed thru the mail before

Not sure. I told the guy to go medium all the way around. I will check the paperwork and see...I really like it. Its not too dark and not too light. I think i had it done like 3 days after i got the car. Im not a tint nut but i can't stand driving without it anymore

If you look back at page 2, you'll find pics of my car with a 35% tint. It looks lighter than BigJack's, but my shots were taken on a very bright day (snow all around). I expect BigJack's is pretty close to mine in tint value.

Here's my car, The 240sx next to the legacy is my other car. The 240sx next to that one is my old roommate's car. More pictures to come once I get a new camera. I've removed the dealer badge shortly after the pictures was taken.
