MY13 Wheel Colour

Hi,

Due to the frankly farcical state of the roads around where i live i seem to have just scratched the paint on one of my wheels. Can anybody tell me what the actual colour is so i can touch it in.

Thanks

good luck with that.

It's something wired like deep blue black chrome and I'm not sure it can be replicated.

I remember seeing the suggestion that the paint was for sale on ebay a while back and was listed under a slightly different name which was preceeded by the word NISMO. It wasn't confirmed it was the actual paint but it sounded and looked like a good bet.

Difficult parameters to search under, sorry, but it's the best clue I'd ever seen.

Most people end up abandoning the colour and going for something close on all four wheels.

Nissan call it Mega Blue Black Chrome, lol. I think the Mega bit of the name refers to the price

I had my MY12 wheels redone and although not an exact match they were so good I actually preferred the new colour.

Ever and I mean ever so slightly lighter.
