Yes! That’s the word: Cheap-looking. I much prefer the Lightning Blue.I went and looked at the VB in person and to me it looked cheap. It’s the color you see on low end F150s and focuses with manual windows. I wanted to like it, but in person it looked so bad I scratched it off my list. The CG pics in the B&P make it look a lot better than it does in person.
Nice color. I had the same color on my 335 and truly loved it. I had already learned the hard way with my previous car being black. Thus even before I took delivery of the 335 I switched over to synthetic products (like Zanio) and invested in a good orbital buffer (actually bought a porter cable but that is overkill). I kept the car for 8 years and it never developed swirls. It also paid off for when I went to sell it as it only took a couple of days and I got top dollar for the car. You have to put the stuff down every few months and then wash it with their same product but man did I keep the swirls away (along with better car washing practices).The AMB is so damn good looking. That being said, I currently have a BMW 5 series with what they call Carbon Black Metallic. It looks essentially the same and I really enjoy the color. Sure it shows dirt really easy, but I have zero problem keeping it clean. The problem that I have is that it shows swirls really bad. It's for this reason that I will be going with a lighter color with my Bronco. 2Dr Badlands w/SAS in Iconic Silver. That's my choice.....for today anyway!
Some serious "Hue" adjustments were made to this pic. You can tell by how pinkish the background is. Plus is also underexposed, perhaps also deliberately. I wouldn't trust these as true colors. Anyone can do these slight adjustments with their phones these days. What happened to the good ole days when you actually had to use a computer with photo editing software to do this.That looks so much better than the white. Sorry to the nostalgia people but I haven't seen a white one look good yet. It belongs on classics just like chrome; not modern.
Right?! I'm about a quarter mile from the limestone gravel road and have wheat and corn fields in my back fields. My dark vehicles get dirty just sitting in the driveway in the summer when it's dry dusty. AMB would lose it's luster real quick.I bet the people who like AMB don't live on a limerock road.
like others AMB is back in the picture after seeing these.. I’m down to VB and AMB. I have seen VB in person and it really is an amazing color. Would love to see AMB at a dealer in person before choosing my final colorDealer has a F250 in in Antimatter. Unfortunately it's a lousy rainy day here but I'll try to link up some pics I did take.
The AMB has the silver bottom , the other 250 is Agate Black.

AMB vs Blue Jeans
I've always been a huuuge fan of Blue Jeans.I think blue jeans is what people really want from AMB. #truthhurts
