The colour is PYRITE and when modded properly, it can look awesome.

Valerie, the original Mtech II retrofitter, was the first owner of "Oscar"

check it out here.

I liked it better when she had the CH's on but Pyrite did some nice looking mods to it too as the second owner. Post 36 shows you how good this colour can look.

I agree, in person, it looks much better. I have a neighbor who has one in that color and it looks good!

if the car is modded in a nice way with that paint color Im sure it would look great. Its rare too. Kinda grows on you the more you look at it.

So many haters. Rare colors are so much better than the boring grey and silvers.

My last car was fern green, current is IR. Love it.

Yeah, so rare. It's a dime a dozen color on Toyotas.

Right back at ya! Our cars SHARE the road with all the Toyotas in this color. If you roll thru the retirement communities here in Fla you'll see every 3rd car is this color.
