    Default Want to check deep blue in corolla

    Indus motors has recently introduced two new colors in all Corolla variants - Wine Red and Deep Blue. While I have had the opportunity of seeing wine red (which is tiled towards dark brownish), I earnestly want to check up the new DEEP BLUE color so that I can have my Altis's strong blue color changed to deep blue, if its decent one.

    Anyone seeing this color is requested to post the pic or indicate me the location for viewing purposes.

    The tragedy of life is not what we suffer, its rather what we miss.

    Alright PWers! Here is the first official look at the Altis Deep Blue!! I must it's indeed an excellent colour. Not exactly same as the XRS i posted earlier. But as Chinyoti mentioned here, that Indus does not exactly follow the international colour codes of Toyota Corp. Since 1F8 in Vitz is different to 1F8 that we get here in PK Corolla. So this 8T0 is different to the 8T0 of USDM XRS.
    Here is the first look:
    Want to check deep blue in corolla -380179

    Want to check deep blue in corolla -380183

    Want to check deep blue in corolla -380184

    Want to check deep blue in corolla -380185

    Want to check deep blue in corolla -380186

    Want to check deep blue in corolla -380188

    Want to check deep blue in corolla -380189

    Btw, now i changed my color back to Deep Blue and InshAllah i'll get the delivery on Wednesday.

    ^ Imust say, not as bad as i expected. But for this color they would discontine the the strong blue? since the color is very much similar, or does it stay?

    PS: OMG look at the differnce of paint shade, on the plastics in 2nd pic,
    Get over the fact that Xli lacks power windows, Its an Xli because it lacks thoose features or else it would be a Gli or an Altis if had all the goodies.

    this is the Deep Blue Metallic whereas the old one is Strong Blue Metallic. it was quoted that discontinuation of the old Strong Blue is in consideration. They said that the booking of Strong Blue has declined recently. And i am not quoting the words of the Sales team here. As i do know that they say anything to sell. Rather i am quoting the words of someone much higher in the admin.
    Indeed there is a colour difference between the metal surface and plastic. But it isn't as drastic as the snap is portraying it to be.

    its very much similiar to the previous strong blue... IMO, olive mica is a better option than this one. At the time of its launch, shimmering green colour in 2008 models of corolla used to give difference in shades on the bumpers and metal surface..

    Got better with time... same is the case with this one...

    Yes the wine red color wasnt avalible in the pre-facelift the car and pic above was probably a sample car.

    Still waiting to see the new blue color, I doubt they would discontinue the strong blue shade as its a very gracefull shade, as im expecting the electric blue color to be new, Which to me looks gud only in overcast weather.
    Shimmering green is still coming.I have seen an 2012 Altis SR in shimmering green

    I have has a similar issue i remember i was visiting the showroom for the HILUX turbos display, i noted the door handles and bumpers were not finished properly, (what local denters finish with wet sanding).

    But the problem is there in new Corolla Altises aswell. This problem wasnt there before If you compare Suzuki/Honda bumper paints with Toyotas they look realy rough finished.

    Be thankful it's just door handles and bumpers that are different. There was a time around 2007/8 when DOORS or FENDERS were of a different shade. People used to be happy if they managed to convince the dealership to match it up but repaint always shows up later on at least.

    can u believe my 08 Gli in shimmering green had its front bumper and the right fender totally different than the rest of the body???

    I had to apply different kinds of waxes to minimize the difference as toyota rawal motors from where I got the car said they couldn't do anything except to repaint the whole car or the bumper and the fender to match them to the rest of the body...

    however, in the new shapes of corolla and in the later models, the problem was solved to some extent... they were only the door knobs that looked different...
