I've been waiting for a proper dark grey color to come out, this Gun Metallic is perfect. I went and lurked around the dealer today. I think this is the color I'll end up with. I was planning on purchasing this summer but it might be fall now.

thanks guys..

@Racer X: Yep, it sure is. I'm still in the break-in stage, so I drove all of GMR at the speed limit. Using the SRM was pretty fun, but I turned it off half way through it. I was slightly apprehensive going around the turns because I'm still getting a feel for the way the car behaves. So far I have not been disappointed.

I instantly recognized Glendora Mountain Ridge Road, it almost resembles platinum graphite in certain places but it is certainly darker and looks great with that back drop. You should definitely come to some of our "cruises!"

Here's a side by side comparison of Gun Metallic on the left and Platinum Graphite to the right. The lighting was poor and I'm sure the differences are more discerning under natural lighting, however, it's obvious that GM is darker than PG.

PG has a sort of a dingy coloration to it and is brownish bronze. It's very warm in color. The GM is more of a true shade of gray without any discoloration towards the warm spectrum of colors.
