    Okay who's car is painted Mirage Pearlescent?

    As title really, but more specifically who has an Astra Coupe Turbo painted Mirage Pearlescent?

    I have been to a few car shows and some meets but as of yet have never seen another Mirage coupe about.

    I know Mike Warner has one but have never seen it in the flesh, Mike saw my car at PV and said mine looked slightly bluer (sp) than his.

    Also if there is a massive response to this thread who's Mirage coupe has half leather/Alcantara interior?

    Cheers

    Lee.

    What is your paint code and what is Mikes? As they both might be Mirage but the colour code will mean a slight difference in overall colour.

    Lee - that is strange - I just bought some Mirage paint to so my centre console trims! Lol.

    Mirage does indeed seem to be very rare on the Coupe Turbos. I only know of three - yours and this one (which lives a few miles from my house apparently):

    Seems like a difficult colour to match too. There are three different shade - I think mine is the lightest. Also, I'm told is in not a pearlescant - although it does appear to have pealescant properties. THe strange thing about this paint is that it can look very different in different lighting conditions.

    Didn't know that there were 3 different shades.

    There is definately 3 different paint shades of Mirage, as I have had my GSI front bumper and irmy rear splitters painted, not vauxhall option though, Mirage is one paint code but there is 3 shades of it whereas star silver they actually did 3 different paint codes; If that makes any sense
