    Default Colour testing?

    Well, it's been debated the colour of the car having an effect on LIDAR targeting distances.

    However, it is difficult to test different coloured cars because the cars themselves are usually quite different (ie Toyota vs Tahoe)

    But I have several old generation Saab 900's sitting around in various colours. I have a burgundy 900 S with some sun fading, a brighter red 900 S, a Rose Quartz (reddish silver) 900 turbo as well as an Edwardian Grey (dark grey metallic) 900 turbo. All of them are post-facelift 3-door models, practically identical bodies save for colour. However they all have chrome grilles and dark grey bumpers, so the effect might be minimal...

    Hmm...

    I've been wanting to VEIL that for a long time but haven't even got around to ordering it... I even have a scrap grille and headlight waiting

    PS that's "rose quartz"
