    Very happy with the Deep Crystal blue mica color

    We picked up our new '18 GT in the Deep blue on Friday. Just spent ALL day detailing her. Man, these are big beasts lol. Coming from detailing my 6, this was quite a bigger chore.
    Anyways, I did not see one imperfection in the paint, and with my Wash, polish/polymer seal and finished off with Caranuba paste wax, the paint is so deep and reflective. Simply beautiful!
    Well, I'll be happy till the rock chips start piling up on the nose like my 6

    Looks good! Any pics of it in the sun??

    I'd recommend a PPF for the hood, fenders, bumper, and mirrors if you want to minimize the rock chips. I know my PPF has saved me from a few already.

    Interesting, I will try that. I just right click my photo in google photos, copy image address,click the insert image button above, add -tmp.jpg to the end of the addy and post.
    Weird as they show up for me, and obviously the guy above. Someone on another thread said they couldnt see mine either

    I can't see the photos either. Permissions maybe? I was debating between that color and the silver but finally opted for the silver one, but please, don't tell me about chips. Take a look at my one-month-old CX-9: https://www.mazdas247.com/forum/show...123864540-Rust I'm preparing mentally to discuss this issue with the guy in charge of MAZDA warranty claims in the island and the dealer manager. I don't know what to expect.

    Weird as I can see them here on my work computer too. Anyways, are all those chips on your roof? Strange place for all those chips. Sucks regardless. Sorry to see that.

    Sorry couldn't see your pictures either. and yes Mazda paint is very thin and prone to chipping. Too bad I can't choose the blue with Signature trim or I would.

    Your pics worked for me before, they don't anymore. Why do you add -tmp.jpg at the end? Why not just add ".jpg"? I wonder if the tmp makes the link temporary or something?

    I don't need the pics (not working for me either) because I have the same color. It's beautiful in the sunlight.

    We have the same color on our Mazda 3 and it looks great especially with the parchment interior. It is difficult to keep clean though like all the dark colored exteriors...
