I looked in vain on the R gallary for a pic of a Silver/Atacam combo. Also, where can I find a color comparison between the Silver and Electric Silver?<p>TIA

Re: Any pics of Silver or Electric Silver w/ Atacama? (24Hours)

There is no way in the world that could look bad... I haven't seen the combo, but if I were buying one that would be it.<p>The Electric Silver seems to have a lot more depth than the Silver. It appears just a hair darker. In some instances it approaches the older volvo pewter colors (IMO). <p>Really nice exciting yet understated color. I am not a huge fan of the paints with larger metallic flakes or excessive color in the flakes (like sapphire). The Electric Silver just really shows of the R's lines well.<p>The Atacama is a bold interior (love it or hate it), but the real benefit is the feel of the leather. While the other R interiors are very nice and soft, the Atacama is just in another class. <p>IMO you can't go wrong with Electric/Atacama- might be rare too?

I've seen pictures of 3 Silver/Atacamas, 2 V's and 1 S, NEVER of Electric/Atacama, (if any were ever built) <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/eek.gif" BORDER="0"> <br>I was sure the gallery had one..

Re: (SHIFT_S60R)

JRL,<br>Thanks. I was thinking of his car too, but w/o the black plastic strips on the car, I think it would have a nicer look, which is why I was hoping to see the newer Electric Silver w/ Atacama. Thanks again for the link.... he had a top-notch car there.<p><TABLE WIDTH="90%" CELLSPACING=0 CELLPADDING=0 ALIGN=CENTER><TR><TD><i>Quote, originally posted by <b>SHIFT_S60R</b> »</i></TD></TR><TR><TD CLASS="quote">my car is silver,atacama. i should be able to put up some pics later on. </TD></TR></TABLE><p>Cool, what year?
