Yes I would like to see some posts on pin stripping, I'm considering but haven't seen anything to appealing yet!

Pictures coming in the not too distant future ...

... I hope - a digital camera is on the wish list before summer vacation.

We had our DMP hand/custom pin-stripped (three stripes) when we bought it. As TheWorm suggested do a search, there are several photos already posted.

It is is wierd with the color, my Nighhawk Black looks like blue specks in paint when the sun shines directly on it. It almost looks blue not black! In direct sunlight, outside of direct sunlight definetly black.

There are definitely blue specks in the black, probably why they call it "Nighthawk Black Pearl." They don't show up in direct sun.

My dealer told me there was blue in the black, but it wasn't until several days after I got it home that I looked under the right conditions. It's subtle until you first notice it, after which it's much easier to see.

I have the color seen in the Car&Driver comparo. The color is Emerald Green. Hence my screen name Emerald01. It is a discontinued color. I like to think of it more as a limited edition color. I love the color. And as more MDX's are made, the more rare this color appears to be. It's the same color used on the SEMA mdx seen below. In certain lighting conditions, it looks almost black.

There was a thread going on people who have this color.

I always wondered how many were painted this color. Does anybody know?

Does that look SWEET!!! Beautiful!! Like you said it looks like the Nighthawk Black Pearl which I have. I wish mine looked like that!!!

What is the SEMA MDX? Is this a special edition. It looks as if the rotors were changed to a high performance for braking. Of course I love those wheels!!!

What!? :eek: Paul123 doesn't know about SEMA? :D I thought you knew everything about cars. Well SEMA stands for Specialty Equipment Market Association. They have a trade shows with Vendors of aftermarket products. Here's their website:

http://www.sema.org/

Here's more picture of some more custom colors from SEMA as well:
Found this from an old thread. "Old news for some. New news for others. "

just an opinion. MDX would look absolutely beatiful in EMERALD GREEN, it the paint was matte, i.e. no clearcoat zaino shine! i actually sometimes wonder why manufactures never use it
