When I was driving a Carbon Black M3 I struggled with this as well... "Dark dark dark blue" doesn't always fit in the guest parking color description field. And when it's parked next to a plain black car, CB certainly doesn't look black.
Yup, and Champagne Quartz is hard to explain, too. Sometimes gold, brown, grey, hints of purple. Another reason not to valet it.

As for main topic, hope the occupants are ok.

+1. Seen many. Test driven a few. In anything but the brightest light with the cleanest car, it's dull gray. Hell, even in bright light it's a sparkly dull gray. Lol.

They really need a track with a road course in Singapore. Not much opportunity to unwind a little in a high performance car there.

The driver doesn't know there is a rev match function, what a surprise to him! Well, we can see the rest of the story!

Anyway this poor M2 matches the post she took down exactly. And I love how the article say bonnet destroyed and windshield shattered. Dude, the M2 is totalled!!

I wonder if they'll whip him in Singapore for destruction of public property?

Ouch. What a sad ending.

White is by far my least favorite color on any car. Very boring and docile in many instances. A pearl white or satin white I'll admit does look very clean on some cars.

He was parked in the shade and suggested pulling it out into the sun to really show it off. You could tell he really like the color, just like people here. But I'm sorry, I didn't see it, instead all I saw was dull flat gray.

But seriously glad you really enjoy the color and you should. People hate the white I choose but hey it's my car and I love it.
Subjectivity is great, eh?

This is only part of the cost. Once you bought your car you can't just drive it, you need to be allowed to use it on the road. The number of permits is limited to keep the number of cars on the road limited, these permits are auctioned and will cost you the price of yet another car (around 30k) and valid 10 years. I think life is very hard for car lovers in Singapore...
