I've heard that the upcoming Ultimate Silver paints are not what they used to be. Apparently, the original Ultimate Silver paint with the extra layers became to costly to replicate when needed and hence they've gone back to all the same for all colours.

What I wanna know is what happens with all the pre-order's who have aid a premium for the Ultimate Silver, but are getting the same paint as all the other colours?!?! Also, does anyone know whether the White has problems with turning yellow when petrol is mistakenly dripped down the bodywork (i.e. when filling up at a pump)?

It's interesting that you say that. Paul at Ultimate Shine has taken paint thickness measurements on recent sat nav cars and they have much more paint now, even more than the original Ultimate Silver:

Non-nav Kuro Black 118-175um
Non-nav Ult. Silver 200um
Sat-nav Kuro Black 230um

However, orange peeling on the Black is even worse now, all over rather than just vertical surfaces.
