Didn't realise how rare it is till after I bought it.

I made a thread about it, only one other person said they have this colour:

Did a quick search and looks like the M3's came in that colour too, only found two though.
Well Stratus Grey is my new favourite colour!!

Thanks man!

I really like your car and colour too, I reckon it's next on my list after Stratus Grey.
You have Mystic Blue paint right?

I have something really nice planned for my next set of wheels.
Will still be a while till I get them though, unless I find a good deal.

Dean, are you just re-colouring an already worn red interior or have you changed the colour?

Just using a small airbrush, then dabbing with applicator sponge to get an even coverage.
Aww ****, who caught him? Hopefully didn't hit your new front bar!

Re-colour. They were black sports seats.
If anyone is attempting to re-colour, DO NOT waste your time with any other company other than Leatherique. I tried using Dynamix dye, and even after around 6 coats, their red would not penetrate the leather. Leatherique after the first coat looked amazing. It really is good stuff. We have a Leatherique distributor in Sydney too, he's very helpful.
