Is that space gray?

Edit: I take that back. I originally was looking at it on the iPhone... on the desktop it doesn't look like space gray at all..

That's clearly a processed photo.

I remember seeing this a while back, search "Color Splash App"

Sparking graphite, discontinued.

Very tough color to mod, only a few pulled it off, including this one!

Gintani FTW!

Why's it so tough to mod? He's got the same mods tons of people on here already have?

I agree with Alpine, not a lot of mods agree with this specific color - especially glossy carbon.

I thought I read on another thread that it was an individual color. Titan Grey or Titan Silver, I think? Definitely looks less metallic than graphite but a deeper shade of grey than space. If it's an individual color I'd love to know and find out how I can order it.
