Thats what confused me about the p/blue colour. It always looks like a slightly different shade depending where you see it. I had originally considered sea grey but as I currently have a magnum grey ST170 thought it would be best to choose something different. I like the blue, it is more common but I guess its a safe option for me. I've not actually seen a new p/blue facelift ST in real life yet. Only some pics posted on the forecourt. I did see a p/blue RS at a dealership I visited. Looked awesome.
The PB is probably a good colour choice. I've had my Electric White ST for 2 weeks now and trust me it doesn't stay clean long. Don't get me wrong I don't mind the cleaning and it does look stunning when clean. I have a few very small chips already, on the front of the skirt just behind the front wheel, obviously from where a small stone has flicked up, but finding a touch up paint is proving difficult.... It's worse that they seem to have used a grey primer/undercoat so they really stand out
The paint does seem very brittle, much more than on my ST170, which was pretty good at withstanding stone chips and the like.
