Re: Which is black?

Eclipse is a very dark grey metallic paint, Pearl black is the black metallic paint.
The colours on the internet site and brochure printing aren't very good or true to life at all.

In my opinion the Renault Pearl Black isn't that black, if you understand what I mean. In bright sunlight it almost has a "brown" tint to it.Looks black in dull/cloudy conditions. We had a 2006 Megane in Pearl Black.
When compared to say Ford black the Ford is definately a much deeper black black.

Eclipse is a good colour -our previous Laguna was Eclipse and we almost had the same colour again for our current Laguna but wanted a change.
Eclipse also shows the dirt less and any minor swirls/scratches will be less obvious than in the Pearl black.

If you can try and look at a Renault ( any model - doesnt have to be a megane, although Megane would give you a better idea of what it will actually look like) in Pearl Black & Eclipse Grey and see which you prefer!
