I have a glacier silver and I like it.

But I'd pick estoril blue, it's a beautiful, special color and fits the F32 well.

Can't go wrong with EB! I find it suits the car well as was just mentioned and you give people a lot of eye candy.

EB! If I wasn't such a conservative person I would have gotten by GC in EB! Looks great especially with some carbon fiber bits.

Not fair -- you didn't show any photos of both from the back.

Estoril Blue gets an A+ from the front -- no current color is nicer. But from the back, the blue clashing with the red taillights gets an F.

I must say that AW and GS would look better if you add the M performance parts. but on standard looks EB tops them all.

i'm not sayin that EB doesnt look SICK with M performance parts ;D

I have glacier silver, simply because it is a low maintenance metallic colour. Though it definitely comes second to EB in my opinion out of all the metallic colours.

The cars might be in the "same" spot, but to be fair, you as the photographer, you also should have stood in the same spot and in the same position/pose....

Photos suck TBH, and distracting.

Since everyone is going with EB, which looks really good, but as a discrete person, i much prefer the GS.


GLACIER SILVER is understated !

These photos were taken months apart with an iPhone as the mood took me. I first owned the glacier silver coupe and I now own the estoril blue one. I never took the pictures with the intention of creating this thread. I created it on a whim.

So, I'm sorry that the photos "suck," and I'm sorry they are "distracting" - quite how they have "distracted" you, or what they have distracted you from, is a little unclear to me.
