Which Black?

Getting painted very soon and can't decide. Nighthawk is more expensive, and I miss how Granada looks. Not very familiar with Flamenco but I'm sure it's good too :P

Re: Which Black?

It's hard to see the differences in pictures, unless they're high res. 4th gen's were Granada black, 5th gens were Flamenco black, and I think EM1 Si's were Nighthawk black

Re: Which Black?

Sooo not helpful. lol. Sorry man, we can't help you if you can't help us. Unless it's a night and day difference (pink or black) then we need to be better informed.

Re: Which Black?

I personally have never seen nighthawk or flamenco, but I can vouch for grenada

Re: Which Black?

My 01 SH is Nighthawk. The real difference I can see is the slight tint color to the flake in the paint. Mine has a bluish tint in direct sunlight.

I believe it's the pearl that gives it that tint, black is black unless it is really wet (shiny) but I would say go with nighthawk, but if you are on a budget just go with granada and baby it after the paint.

How about a good old fashioned plain Black? Black is black in my opinion...
