Default Glacier versus Ibis White

I know that Glacier White is a metallic paint but how does it compare to Ibis White?

It's gray in comparison. Ibis is much more of a true bright white.

Or "Refrigerator White" as we used to say in the business...Ibis is harsh and in your face (in a good way,lol), Glacier is rich in a softer,elegant way.

Iím highly biased, but I think the Ibis White is the perfect color for the A5.

I have both. I like both. Folks talk about Ibis being "whiter", "softer"... I'll tell you that Glacier is "colder", almost LED light vs. bright white for Ibis. I am not saying Ibis is yellow / incandescent... But the Glacier can sometime feel white-gray. Side by side, it is very subtle.

Here's a cloudy day shot. Ibis on left... Glacier on right. Of course Glacier would sparkle more on a sunny day.

I completely agree. I guess it all depends on a persons idea of "White"

Iíve had S4ís in both. Ibis is almost blindingly white - especially when washing in direct sunlight. Glacier has a perfect name as it is deeper and has a bluish/grey tinge to it just like a glacier. Personally while Ibis is nice I like glacier quite a bit more. Kind of a mix between Ibis and the amazing Suzuka Grey.
