Everyone that sees my Radium 01 Se says it looks more champagne than Silver, but in different light it looks different colors. So is radium a mix? Or is it champagne? Or is it silver?

When you look at it next to a silver car, it almost has a more gold tint to it. by itself it looks slightly more silver. My wife has a silver Altima, and parked next to each other, the radium sentra looks much better! I don't think it looks quite champagne either though. I love the radium - it's such a unique color and the Sentra looks awesome in it!

I dunno...in most lights, it looks kinda beigeish and champagne. In all the Nissan brochures, it looked silver. I was kinda disappointed with the color..I wish it was brighter.

Radium is not champagne. Champagne is an older nissan color. Radium is the same as the pearl color of the previous 2 years...at least that's the touchup paint the dealer gave me and it matches perfectly.

yeah...the brochure is messed up on the colors. but radium is definately a classy color. actually ist more of a non-color, but thats ok in my book.

I agree with the champaigne/beige assesments of Radium. Especially when the sunlight hits it.

I was thinking the same thing when I saw the brochure and the real thing. Even the charcoal to me looks a lot darker in person. My avalanche was pretty accurate. I kinda like the 2001 pure looking white too.
