I notice that most pictures of the flint mica paint don't show off its true beauty. I noticed when reviewing the first set of pics of my 06 Flint Mica the one with the exhaust shows all of the metallic specs in the paint. When the sun hits the paint you can see green, blue, purple, all in the dark gray basecoat. It really makes it shimmer, let me know what you think!

It's a nice color, but IIP is much nicer looking
i love fm i'm sorry but iip was my last option when i was chosing the color for my tc, wait not even n the list, isn't it the bluish one? oh well didnt like it for many reasons... you dont even see that many n the streets why? cuz all other models have it... plus my employee just got his with that exact same color

I had IIP for about a week and got totaled i loved it 2, but ones i saw the FM on the dealer parking lot in the rain i got it over the SSM. I dont see any other cars with that kind of color and it makes the FM so uniqe. I know BMW has similar, but not like the FM.

Ive noticed that too. FM is the best color. I work at a paint shop and the mica is actually metallic chips that go into the dark gray paint, it looks so nice after a good rain and the sun starts to shine again!
