I have only seen the gun metal in person.  How does the titanium compare in color?  Is it darker/lighter, shinier, etc?  Thank you.

browner/hint of gold may be

in darkness, I would say its about the same or slightly lighter.

The brownish tint color is absolutely stunning in person.

Thanks.  I did a search (which I should have done in the first place).  Does anyone know if it is like any other color Nissan did?  I have an 07 Titan that is similar.  In certain light you can see a gold/tan/bronze/silver/grey.

The main difference I can see between them is the Titanium is a little browner and, of course, the Titanium obviously looks better... :irock:

The Titanium appears light grey in the shade (lighter than the DMG); goes to full bronze in the sun.

Titanium is awesome.  I really didn't like it until I saw Pi-man's car.  It is gorgeous.

Ti is my favorite color because it is kind of like a chameleon. The color look varies greatly depending on the light conditions.

Here is a pic from the Akuma gathering with a Titanium and Gun Metal Side by Side in the same light.
