Definitely the dark blue. Is that Blu Hollandese?

What is you car's original color, red like your avatar?
What is your interior?
To me, tobacco or beige interior looks better with the darker blue, while black interior looks better with the LeMans blue.
GTA Alfa and I lean towards Hollandese.
Do some Google searches and then click images for lots of examples.

I have a paint sample of the Dutch blue also from DuPont. I like it but it has a little purple in it and I prefer the Bluette a tad more. Yes, my car was originally red. These are the seats.

Hold the paint samples to the seats and see which you prefer.
Let it sit for a few days.
I agree, it is a tough choice!

I have the darker blue with a tan interior and it’s a great combo. I think it’s a more subdued look than the brighter blue - depends what look you want. Nice seats BTW.

For what its worth, our professors taught us color theory in Graphic Design school in university.
They stressed not to have two dominant colors competing with each other.
Let one be dominant and the others subordinate.

My car is Bluette and I used Glasurit to give me some comfort the forumla was right. An authorized BASF shop had the formula on file, which is single stage, matched to two stage. Of course you can use single stage if you like. For what its worth I adore the color. So interesting and complex in different light.
