Pic Request: Side-by-side of Dakar I vs. Dakar II

I've looked for quite some time for a side by side pic of these two colors. Does anyone know where a pic like that can be found, comparing Dakar I and II? Or better yet, for some of our more veteran BMW owners, does anyone know an owner with both colors in their garage?

Thanks in advance,
- esquire

Garage List
They both are the same color. Dakar I is single stage paint and Dakar II is basecoat/clearcoat. They might look different due to oxidation of the Dakar I, but seeing both together in good condition they look the same to me.

Justin, thanks for the reply. I'm aware of the difference in how the paints are applied and their difference in clearcoat treatment. But there are many who attest that their is a slight difference in the appearance of these two colors.

I know at some point, there were some side by side pics posted on the net. But those links are long dead. Hopefully someone saved one of those pics. Better yet, I hope someone has a recent side-by-side
