And trust me it looks even better in person. I was told today, the reason it costs 10k is because two things, one, it's a AMG exclusive color and two, that supposedly they paint the yellow colors on a different line from the others cause the yellow paint has more steps in the process. I really want a yellow one but the price and the fact I think it will draw to much attention. Or should I say the **** with it and just do it? I would appreciate everyone's opinion.

yes it seems a bit matte metallic, you pay for paradox will you be disappointed with the car if you don't get it in yellow?

It's definitely not a matte metallic at all. It's quite sparkly if I say so myself. But, seeing it in artificial light but seeing it in the sunshine I'm quite sure it will be a show stopper. I feeling like I would be kinda disappointed if I didn't get one in yellow. But, I just don't know.

I mean I'm sure it is a bit more expensive and difficult to put on the car, maybe that would constitute selling the paint color for more money, but $10k just seems like an awful lot for a paint color. If you can afford it and are okay with spending that much money, then I say get it because the color is great looking.

Keep in mind that for some people, $10k when they are already spending over $100k on the car won't seem that bad. It just adds a bit to your monthly payment.

It's just the principal of the $10k to me. Cause money isn't the object cause if I like it I'll get it. I got to drive an Edition 1 this past Friday. I love that color. So it's between Solarbeam Yellow and Designo Selenite Grey.
