It really depends on the lighting. From what I remember it was a really nice light gray when it was overcast and looked gray with a hint of blue speckles/flakes when cloudy, but sunny out. In direct sunlight it all gets washed out and looks a bit like mineral white, but with a tad bit more flakes IIRC.

The turn signals are the color amber in the Euro version.

I'm sorry, your question is lost on me.. :

The two pics was to juxtapose the two turn signal light output.

The one that's in red is a US-spec vehicle in South Korea and the amber is from another member, from somewhere is Europe.

Both vehicles had their hazard lights on.

Oh, I see what you mean now..

Well, the turn signal LEDs are all originally the color red but they added a green optical filter, so they appear amber, to a human eye and meet ROW color regulations.

It really is an awesome colour, depending on time of day and location I've seen it range from White to purple... Amazing, like having a new car each time I drive. 👍🏻👍🏻

Looks like an urban setting. I understand losing control of a vehicle, but in an urban setting, can we safely assume they weren't exactly adhering to the speed limit? I can't imagine doing that kind of damage doing 35 mph.

HS = White for everyone that is not a car enthusiast. HS owners don't get your feelings hurt.

Agreed, I came here expecting to hear about exploding water jugs combined with hot GF drama, PSI of the rear driver side tire being off, or at least some majestic tarmac artistry that lead up to this to make front page. I guess the F87 forum is just as dull as... ugh, I can't come up with anything... I guess it's just us F80 owners that need to get our drama outside of the car...
