Default Dark Gray Metallic Thread

I'll go first:













2009 WRX. 100% stock. Auto Armor paint protection. Never waxed. I've noticed that dark gray metallic (DGM) has a different color in different lighting. In sunlight, for example, the metal flakes really pop and the color looks dark and rich. But under overcast skies, the color lightens up and looks almost steel gray and the metal flakes recede. This color changes like a mood ring.

I love this color! I'd have gotten my 07 in that color if they had it. Don't get me wrong, OBP is an awesome color, but it's just too hard to keep clean!
