This reminds me of another point relevant to our original poster.

I find MCB looks infinitely better at southern latitudes. My car looks much brighter and deeper like an electric blue under the Miami sun. It didn't look anywhere near as radiant in Munich.

So I'm not surprised you didn't like the color as much in Alberta. You don't have enough ambient sunlight for MCBs xirallic content to glow.

In Saudi Arabia, you will find this color looks deeper and glossier than in northern climates.
