That really does look good. First gray car I've even thought about owning. Need to see it next to a black one first though.

I'm really gravitating towards the Graphite Shadow for a number of reasons.

I have Malbec Black now. It's a beautiful color, but here in the desert of Arizona, it's very dark, it gets dirty quite easily (and dents and dings are very noticeable) and most times only I can notice the color. The same reason for why I probably wouldn't get the Black Obsidian (not to mention having a black car in 110 degree weather is less than practical).

The verdict is still out on the Liquid Platinum, Moonlight White, Venetian Ruby, and Chestnut Bronze. Out of these four, I'm gravitating towards the Chestnut Bronze moreso only because I like the tone of the brown. I also predict that unlike Moonlight White, Chestnut Bronze will be a rare/low volume color choice and I like having a unique color on my car. I'm not totally sure yet on the Liquid Platinum's visual blend of the darker wheels with the lighter silver tone paint of the car. For me, the combination doesn't quite work.

So, it's a toss-up between the Venetian Ruby, Chestnut Bronze, and Graphite Shadow.

That graphite shadow just keeps gettin sexier and sexier... Quickly becoming my fav...best shots of it yet ... I have the same problem with the heat here in Vegas too... So while Malbec is beautiful and every car looks amazing in obsidian they are both out for me... Graphite moonlight white and Hagane blue are my top choices right now ...

Yeah the GS color is awesome in the sunlight. Even though I pre ordered Hagane blue, since the first production run didn't have a match for my dealer, I could very easily switch to graphite to get the car sooner. None of the colors look bad, and I'm about a shrug away from checking to see if graphite is an option.

Hey--it's like I've been saying.

I have my favorite colors on paper, but who knows. When you see that Hagane Blue pulled up at the dealership, in full form, clean, and in person, you might instantly fall in love!

Who knows, really..

Yep... there's something about this color that really does the car well. I'd go with it.

Welcome newcomer!

My perspective is--when it comes to color popularity, in general, Black, Gray, and Silver seem to be near the top---Followed by White and Red, and then Blue/Green/Purple, Brown/Tan are usually near the bottom.

Gray/Graphite Shadow is probably going to be probably very popular of a color choice, so if standing out is important to you (particularly among other Q50's), I'd definitely keep that in mind!
