I know that you are into 'stealth' in a big way, but you obviously took it
too far this time - the Metro driver couldn't distinguish you from the
surrounding landscape :-).

Didn't somebody once say "In the night, all cats are black"?
Maybe both Audi and the bodyshop subscribe to the theory that as black is a
total absence of colour then there is no such colour as black, so they have
to refer to it some other way. All I can say is that its the weirdest shade
of blue that I've ever seen and if hair turned that shade of grey 'Just For
Men' would never sell another bottle.
