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.

Grr wont take my upload. I will try to get it hosted and repost for you.
